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.

Lost of heating after 40 minutes of driving.

You have a dual range HVAC system. It has two blend doors in the HVAC box, and only the blend door for the driver's side is working properly. You will have to troubleshoot, and possibly replace the blend door actuator for the passenger side.

Why does my 2006 GMC slt seiera baught at the end of the year wears out wheelbearings front I'm on my5th one since new this page wont let u select the right year.

Hello goldwingtazz,

One of the most common reason for repeated hub assembly failures is the use of the wrong hub assembly.

Technical Service Bulletin Number 08-03-08-003A addresses this problem. There were 7 different Gen II 4x2 and 4x4 applications and now Gen III have only 3 part numbers for the same application.

The new hub assembly will have a spline open center and this is acceptable

Proper torque is 133 ft. lbs the mounting bolt.

Driver side wheel is making noise from wheelbearing replaced wheelbearing and noise is still there if i put truck in 4 wheel drive it goes away but as soon put back into 2 wheel comes back

Sounds like a bad vacuum line to the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) or a problem with the IWE solenoid.
Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Start by checking the vacuum line at the IWE for vacuum when the truck is in 2WD mode, and the engine is running. If you have low vacuum on one side, trace the vacuum lines back towards the IWE solenoid.

This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum lines

I have a ford f 150 4x4, that the Passager front tire can be moved up and down a little, took off tire, can move front end. Is this a wheel bearing ? How do you get to the wheel bearing ?

If this is a 2005 F-150 4x4. Usually if there is movement up and down, itmight possibly be the lower ball joints and not the wheel bearing, to verify that it is indeed bearing play you can grab a hold of your tire (with tire of the ground) and try and move it side to side instead of up and down. If you can still feel the movement then it is the wheel bearing. To get to the wheelbearing you will first have to remove the tiny center dust cap in the middle of the wheel. There should be a 13mm bolt you will need to remove under that cap. Next you will have to remove the brake caliper and caliper bridge, then remove the brake rotor. On the backside of the knuckle assembly you will see 4 bolts that hold the hub assembly (your wheel bearing) on. There also may be a plastic ring around the back of the hub assembly too that has vacuum lines running to it for the vacuum hub,this will be held on by 4 or so 8mm bolts, once all these bolts and the4 bolts holding the actuall hub assembly on are removed, you should be able to remove the hub (bearing) assembly from the front of the knuckle assy. Hope this helps.

Welcome to FixYa
the front wheel bearing is a hub unit.
need to remove the tire,brake caliper, rotor, the 34mm nut in the axle, then there is 3 bolts that hold the hub to the spindle, those come off then the hub comes out,reverse to install.
