My 99 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 new model has a rubbing noise when driving. I jacked truck up, both wheels off ground. Rolled driver side wheel. the sound of rubbing came from driver side of differential....

It sounds like the front bearings on the hub or hubs is going out. at high speeds you may not hear it.

but driving on a regular city street may sound louder. sometimes sounds like your transmission is going

out, but its the front hubs. since you have a 4 x 4 replacing the bearings is more in depth, you will need

special tools such as lock ring pliers and a special deep socket to remove the inner lock nut made for

chevy and gmc trucks. I would recommend you get a diaghram, the best money for your buck is to

go to and purchase a membership for your truck, and it will have a wealth of info. to include

printing and anything in referance to your truck. each vehicle cost under 17 dollars per year . I have it

on all my vehicles. good luck!

1999 Silverado 1500 ABS bad wheel speed sensor, on one wheel what is involved in replacing it I removed fuse to allow usage.

it is not bad to do. you will need to replace the hub assembly as it comes with the speed sensor on it. first remove the tire. then remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts. remove it and take the rotor off and follow the speed sensor wire and unplug it. needle nose plyers work good for getting the push in clips out. then remove the hub assembly mounting bolts and take the hub off.

Driver side wheelbearing assembly replace . what is the proper way to replace on a 2006 chev. 4x4 silver.;

remove wheel. remove brakes and rotors, remove axle nut. make sure axle breaks free inward from hub( 4x4 models only) ( smack it a few times, use a wood block dont damage the threads) remove the three or four bolts coming from the rear side of the knuckle going into the wheel bearing/hub assembly, once removed ur gonna have to beat the hub free from the knuckle. chisel on an air hammer works well. chisel outward dont be afraid to take a small sledge and smack the hub behind the lug nut area, its getting replaced.

Need to replace drivers side power mirror on 1999

Remove that plastic piece at the top of the door panel, ( it just unsnaps straight out), use a small screwdriver or putty knife to help pry it up, it's held in place by plastic clips so be gentle.
Unplug the connector from the mirror,
Remove the nuts and the mirror assembly will come off, don't let it fall.
Installation is the reverse.
