Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Wheel bearings are easy on FWD GM's, no need to take the strut or ball joint apart.
Lift the car, remove the wheel. put a large screwdriver in the webbing of the brake rotor and spin it until it contacts the body of the caliper bracket. Spray down the axle nut with PB blaster (dont get any on the brakes), and then use a large socket (1&7/16th) to get the nut off (this can be hard without a large breaker)
Once it's off, remove the brake hardware and set it all aside, and tie the caliper to the spring so it dosent fall and rip the hose.
With the hub/bearing exposed, reach behind and take the 3 bolts out that hold the hub to the knuckle. Unplug the ABS sensor and pull the hub out (bad ones sometimes get stuck, you may need to use a slide hammer or bearing puller, you can rent them from parts stores)
Clean the mount point and bolts (they had threadlocker on them), slide the new hub in, put new threadlocker on the bolts and put them back in. Reconnect the ABS wire and then put your brakes back together, and the wheel back on.

You'll need to remove the wheel hub, seperate it from the strut and ball joint. Remove the brake caliper and tie rod end. Most likely you'll need to have the bearing pressed out by a machine shop.
