The wheel bearings on your car is contained in a sealed wheel hub. You have to change the whole hub to change the bearing. Remove the wheel, the brake caliper, the rotor. There will be three bolts holding the hub on from the back. You will need to remove these bolts and slide the hub off of the spindle. then grease the spindle slide on your new hub and bolt everything back together.

SOURCE: I need to change right front wheel bearing on 96 honda accord

It's not a easy job you will need a press to take the old one out and replace the new one, my advice to you is take the steering knockle out and have your local shop press the bearing out for you and put the new one in. This way you just have to bolt everything back up and your good to go.

SOURCE: How to change wheel bearings

There a bolt in bearing so they are pretty easy. Jack up the car, remove the tire/wheel, remove the caliper, remove the rotor, remove the axle nut, unplug ABS sensor if equipped, remove three bearing to knuckle bolts. remove the bearing.

Make sure you torque the axle nut to the proper spec after installing the new bearing. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to prematurely fail. Also get a good quality bearing. The less expensive bearings are less expensive for a reason. You don't need the most expensive one but you want one from a good manufacturer.

My 1991 cavalier is a 2.2ltr 4 cyl. 3spd auto, front wheel drive. when I drive it I hear from the right (passenger side) front tire a deep loping whirring sound....I am leaning towards the bearing or...


Deep growling sound could well be a bad wheel bearing. A bad cv joint will generally make a click or clacking sound, usually while only turning. While driving, you can often change the pitch of a bad wheel bearing with a slight turn of the steering wheel (note - slightly, no crazy zig-zag). What you're doing is shifting the weight on/off of this bearing and the pitch will change if it's bad. Only way to verify is to remove it and feel it in hand. It's a sealed hub/bearing assembly and only replaceable, not serviceable.

Need to know how to install wheel bearings on a chevy cavalier


1) Break the torque on the center wheel nut and remove the nut and washer before jacking up the front end. 2) Jack up the front and remove the tire. 3) Remove the brake caliper and rotor. 4) After removing the rotor you will see the bearing assy. There are 3 torx bolts holding it on. You need to put the transmission in neutral to turn the hub and line up the hole to remove the bolts. 4) Knock it loose with a hammer and install in reverse order. The kit comes with a seal but I don't believe it's needed on a 96. Pretty simple job really... Good Luck.

Wheel bearings


What do you have removed? Did you remove the three bolts on the back of the hub? After these are removed, you can tap the rear of the hub with a mallet to gently knock it off of the spindle.

What's the standard wheel size / # lugs for '96 chev cavalier?


14" x 6" is the standard wheel size, and the lug bolt pattern is 5 x 100. That is pretty standard for most 5 lug compact cars. My Scion tC has the same pattern, but the lexus, and I believe the Camry are 5 x 114. Basically 5 x 100, and 5 x 114 are the standard for compact 5 lug cars. If you go on ebay, and put 5 x 100, you will see some nice wheels, and also, if you put 96 cavalier wheels in the search bar on ebay, when people list their wheels, they will also put what other cars they fit in the title page. That should get you well on the way to finding some wheels. Hope I fixed ya!
