    you do not remove the hub you must remove a portion of the front arm so that the cv joint can slip out the hub is pressed in with a press not a hammer or a piece of wood good luck!

This is one difficult task my friend, and is a big job. without the propper tools this is next to impossible. you actually need to buy a puller that helps you still need to back the bolts out and hit them while keeping tension on the puller. puller is OTC 6290 for @100-130 bucks

Changing front wheel bearing everything good till can't get axle out of way


assuming you have the lower ball joint loose, sometimes you have to disconnect the outer tie rod as well. The hub should then swing out. If the axle is stuck in the hub, put the nut back on the axle and hit the nut with a hammer. OK?

HOW DO i CHANGE A FRONT HUB ASSEMBLY ON A 1998 BUICK LESABRE??


Remove the brake caliper bracket bolts, there should be two of them. Pull the caliper assembly off of the rotor (you may need to depress the caliper piston by prying it inwards). Take the hub to axle nut off, and punch the axle inwards with a punch to loosen it up. Then remove the 3 bolts holding the hub in. One everything is removed, just hit the hub with a hammer until it falls off, clean off the mounting surface, and install the new one in reverse procedure.

How to change front wheel bearings on 2000 olds intrigue I have a bad left front wheel bearing. Also I have changed the rear ones. Should I go ahead and change the other side?


Yes you can try replace it

What you need to do is go to an auto parts store such as AutoZone. Then buy the Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly-Front it runs around $150. Once you have the part you need to take off the Caliper and rotor.
Then you need a 36 mm socket to take off the cv nut. You will need a breaker bar if you don't have a tourque wrench, but remove the nut. Then take a hammer and punch, and place the punch on the cv axle and try to knock it through the hub, pushing the cv axle into the boot a little.
Do not pull the hub off before loosening it from the cv axle, that could cause you to have to replace the axle boot. Once you got the cv axle free take the 3 bolts off the back of the hub. If you can't get to the 3 bolts behind the hub you can take the 2 bolts out of the top of the strut and that will give you more room. I was able to keep the strut bolts in.
Once the bolts are out it may be hard to remove the hub. I had to use a lot of WD 40 and a brass hammer to get it off. However, most auto parts stores will rent you a tool that will help you take it off, the same tool will also help with getting the hub free from the cv axle if the hammer and punch did not work. Once removed put the new one on. Makes sure you put some lithium grease on everything before installation.
