Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
First, disconnect the electrical connector for the ABS at the backing plate if so equipped.
Remove the axle shaft nut and then remove 3 bolts on the back side of the steering knuckle. You may have to tap the axle with a hammer a bit to drive it out of the hub taking care not to damage the axle the and the bearing may also be stuck in the steering knuckle requiring a little, or lot, of hammer action to remove it ! If your car is ABS equipped be aware that on some designs part of the ABS sensor can remain stuck inside the steering knuckle and MUST be removed prior to installing the new bearing. I simply do not remember if the 98 malibu has this design but if it does this is very important. Good luck !
