Hello! Here's the info you requested regarding removing the wheel speed sensor bracket:

Remove the wheel/tire
Remove the brake caliper bracket bolts - NOTE: be sure to support the bracket from above to avoid stressing the brake line - and then remove the caliper and bracket as one complete assembly.
Release the retainer clips for the speed sensor harness that are on the upper control arm. (Take note of where/how these are positioned for when you reinstall them)
Disconnect the electrical connector for the sensor
Remove the speed sensor connector from the body
Mark the location of the speed sensor wire harness as it is on the steering knuckle
Remove the speed sensor bracket bolt
Remove the hub bearing bolts
Remove the brake rotor and wheel bearing as a complete unit - be careful to guide the wire harness for the speed sensore through the knuckle
Mark the location of the speed sensor as it is positioned on the wheel/hub assembly
Using a small prying tool - carefully remove the sensor from the hub assembly.

Reassemble in reverse order.

Torque specs you'll need:

Wheel/hub bearing bolts - 92 ft/lb
Speed sensor bracket bolt - 14 ft/lb
Brake caliper bracket bolts - 129 ft/lb

Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

Where are the speed sensors on a 2004 chevy trailblazer?


Assuming that you're talking about the front wheel speed sensors...
Your best bet is to replace both from wheel hub/bearing assemblies.

They'll cost about $100-$150 each.
When the wheel speed sensors are setting ABS codes it usually means that the bearings are bad.
When you replace the whole hub assembly, a new sensor is already installed in that hub. If it just the sensor (unlikely that just the front sensors alone are going bad) the sensor itself is usually 3/4 of the price of a new hub anyway.

Abs activates just before truck stops (2005 chevy silverado) wheels not skidding, assuming a wheel sensor is bad, how do find out which one, or is the problem in the abs computer, abs light does not come...


This is a condition known as over active ABS. GM has a technical service bulletin for this. Basically what it say is to remove the front wheel speed sensors from the hubs, clean the mating surface between the sensor and the hub, apply some di-electric grease over the cleaned area, and reinstall the sensor.

You can try this on the front sensors and see if the problem goes away. I will warn you that you need to be very careful removing the sensor from the hub as they can break off. If it breaks off in the hub you will need to replace the hub and bearing.

You can also check to see if one of the front wheel bearings is loose. with the tire off the ground grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position and push/pull. if the wheel moves and you can see the rotor moving also than the wheel bearing may be sloppy enough for internal exciter ring to get an excessive gap from the abs sensor.

The easiest thing to do is look at wheel speed data on a higher end scan tool. When the symptom happens you will see the wheel speed drop out. Whatever wheel drops out is the wheel that needs to be checked.

Hope that helps.

How do i replace bad front wheel bearing ?


Replace the hub assembly which can be bought for $58 to $100 from various sources.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Place jackstands under the cradle and lower the vehicle slightly so the weight of the vehicle rests on the jackstands and not on the control arms.
  3. Remove the wheel assembly.
  4. Insert a drift punch into the rotor and remove the hub nut/washer.
  5. Remove the brake caliper, support and the rotor.
  6. Using the front hub spindle remover tool, separate the halfshaft from the hub.
  7. Remove the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts and the hub/bearing assembly. To install:
  8. If replacing the seal, drive the seal towards the engine. Cut the seal off the halfshaft; be careful not to damage the halfshaft boot. NOTE: If the speed sensor bracket is removed or loosened from the steering knuckle, the speed sensor gap must be adjusted. If the speed sensor is removed from the bracket, speed sensor wax must be applied to the sensor before it is reinstalled in the bracket. Failure to apply the wax will permit corrosion and may result in sensor failure.
  9. To install the new grease seal, lubricate the with wheel bearing grease and using the hub seal installer tool, install the seal.
  10. Install the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts and the hub/bearing assembly. Tighten the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  11. Install the halfshaft to the hub.
  12. Install the rotor and caliper.
  13. Install the hub nut and washer. Tighten to 183 ft. lbs. (245 Nm).
  14. Install the wheel assembly.
  15. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.

I have a 2004 Chevy Colorado and can not get the hub off to change out my front rotors.


Very, very few cars or trucks require the hub to be removed. In almost all American vehicles, the rotors are just resting on the hub and will come off fairly easily. Make sure you've removed the caliper, then smack the rotors a bit with a rubber mallet. They should come off. If there's a ton of rust, you might need to use some penetrating oil, then smack them a little.

How do you get the front rotors off of a 2004 Chevy Colorado? More specifically, do you take off the hub assembly, and if so, how?


If this is a 4wd the rotors are "captured" and machined on the truck using an on car lathe. Otherwise you should get a printout of all the steps from a dealer.
