Jack it up and block it in place so it doesn't move (put the blocks under the K-frame mount)
Tip... loos-ten the lug nuts while the tire is on the ground so the wheel doesn't move.
Remove the wheel and the brake caliper. Remove the axle retaining nut.
With a dead blow hammer or a piece of wood held against the axle end, hit the end of the axle to push it out of the hole.
you won't be able to remove it completely just yet. remove the lower ball joint nut and separate the joint from the spindle.
Now you should be able to swing the whole works out of the way and pull the axle out of the bearing.
From the back side you should be able to see the bolts that hold the bearing in place. Don't forget to clean and grease everything while you have it apart.
I hope this will steer you in the right direction. If you need exploded diagrams of the parts, your local parts store should have that all on their computers.

Is there a bearing or bushing on the shaft that the left axle slides onto on a 1999 Bonneville se?

i have been fooled by this one way to many times. when a wheel bearing or hub assesembly is making noise, it will sound like it is comming from the other side. i do not know why this is. but one test will prove if and which one. when growling noise occurs, notice, when turning left or right, does noise get louder and quieter as you turn? if so then it is wheel bearing. when turning left the right side will make more noise. when turning right the left side will make more noise. if always the same then, tires or transmission need addressing. the cv axle does not make a growling noise, unless front wheel drive car does not move, it makes a clicking or poping noise. sorry but at least you dont have to replace other axle

2004 Pontaic Bonneville humming noise wheel bearing?

I had a similar problem, when turning to the right or on a right curve, the noise would go away. After some research I found it was the left wheel bearing assembly. I replaced it and the problem is gone. Therefore, check the wheel bearing assembly. You may have to replace it.
