The bearings on a LeSabre are part of the hub assembly. The hub and bearing will have to be replaced as a unit. To do this you'll need to raise the car, remove the wheel, remove the caliper guide bolts, lift and support the caliper-I use a bent metal clothes hangar to support. Do not loosen the brake line. Slide the brake rotor off the lugs. Disconnect the electrical connector for the antilock brake system. The connector is behind the wheel. Then remove the four bolts holding the hub assembly. The bolts are behind the wheel. Be sure to hold the hub while removing. To install reverse the order. Be sure to check and tighten bolts to specifications when reassembling.

    After reviewing my notes I realized I had omitted several important steps. You'll need to remove the hub bolt. To do this place a screwdriver inside the brake rotor along the outer edge to hold the wheel while you loosen the hub nut. Remove the caliper and rotor. Remove the hub nut. You may need a hub puller to pull the hub. Clean the rust and dirt from the spindle and the hub seat. A light coat of grease may help slide the new hub assembly into place. While sliding the new hub on be careful not to scratch the inside of the hub assembly. Make sure to tighten all bolts to the torque specifications.

My 2001 buick lesabre starts to make a dronning sound from the front end around 30mph and gets louder the faster you go!


Wheel bearings or hubs.If you listen and turn one way or the other the sound goes away.It's usually the one your turning towards,and the sound goes away.Here's the process.
