It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

SOURCE: how do u remove front wheel bearing

Take off the wheel, then the brake caliper, noow you have the roter. in the center is a cap, the center cap, this comes off by pruing it off with a screwdriver. Inside that a retaning pin, take that out, then a nut cover, and nut with grooves in it from where you took out the pin. It is good to mark about where it was so when you put it together, you will not overtighten it.

Take that nut off, then you should be able to take off the whole assembly, bearings and all. If this is a sealed unit, you have to but a roter that will have the guts already inside it. make sure you clean off all of the old grease, you are going to replace critical parts, so you need new grease for them. Also make sure your spildle is not grooved, if so haw bad, you might replace it to if all gualled up.

on a sealed unit you just reverse the steps from taking it off.

if not you have to knock out the old races in the caliper, the one side by a wide screwdriver and hammer, there are pullers, but from the way it sounds, it is in there tight. Just be carefull not to kill the sides and rotate it around when doing this. once it is out, do the other side, find a socket that size, one thak will fit in the race almost to the edges and beat it out. now make sure the caliper is in a flat surface, and use a blanket or something toi avoid knicking the thing.

once both are out, just reverse the process, grease the inside just a bit and when you put the race in use a socket that is the size of the race, and beat it in evenly.grease your bearings, make sure you do one side at a time, and putting them back on the spindle is a cake walk compared to what you just have done.

hope this helps

SOURCE: rear wheel bearing hub replacement on a 2002 pontiac grand prix

It is a tight fit, a few wacks with a hammer should loosen it. Hit on the back side of the flange where the wheel mounts, try to drive it away from the car, after making sure you have removed all the bolts.

Service engine soon light is on and service vehicle sonn light is on just replaced a wheel bearing in right front tire they came on and cant get them off tried everything

Wheel bearings are in hubs and not tyres and that has nothing to do with engine service lights.. So I will try to guess what you are asking. IF you have a front wheel drive vehicle and you cannot get the hub off the drive axle it will be because the drive splines are seized in the hub ( rust) or the bearings are tight in the shaft. You may need a puller to push the axle back out of the hub to get it free of the axle . You can then remove the bearings from the hub. As to the service light problem ---complete a service as required and then reset the light using a code reader to reset the CPU.. IT may be advisable to get a workshop manual as it will explain what you want to know.

How do iI remove the front wheel bearing?

The front wheel bearings on your Dodge Dakota allow the wheels to spin freely on the axle spindle. These sealed bearings may cause noise once they wear out, develop a pit on the races, bends and other damage that interfere with wheel performance. However, the front bearings form a single assembly with the wheel hubs and they should be replaced as a single unit. Fortunately, installing a new assembly is not a difficult process.

  1. Removing the Hub/Bearing Assembly
    • Before raising the front wheel(s), loosen the half shaft nut using an axle nut socket. Then remove the wheel/tire assembly and the half shaft nut. If your particular Dakota model comes equipped with an Anti-lock Bake System (ABS) sensor, remove the sensor form its bracket and move it aside.

      Now you are ready to remove the brake caliper and rotor. Make sure to secure the caliper to the coil spring using a piece of heavy wire. Do not let it hanging by the brake line to avoid damage to the brake hose attached to the caliper. With the caliper and rotor out of the way, you have access to the hub/bearing assembly mounting bolts.

      On some models, you can only access the hub/bearing mounting bolts through the holes in front of the hub/bearing assembly. Rotate the assembly by hand as you loosen and remove the mounting bolts. Once you remove the bolts, you can detach the hub/bearing from the steering knuckle and halfshaft. If the bearing assembly seems stuck to the halfshaft, use a 3 jaw gear puller to remove it.

Abs and emergency brake light illuminate intermittently, but no apparrent problem surfaces.

Most likely, this situation is caused from Rust buildup between the front hub bearings and spindle. GM had a bulletin out for this. It involved removing the front hubs and cleaning the surface of the spindle.

Front wheel bearing replacement

Too long to write out but here are the essentials: Remove the center bolt that holds the front axle into the hub. (usually very tight...around 150 lbs torque....sometimes helps to have a shop loosen it and then put it back tight but less tight so you can remove it when you get it home)
Remove the caliper and rotor. Remove the three bolts that hold the bearing hub to the steering knuckle.
Soak the parting line between the hub and knuckle with wd40 or other solvent and use a chisel on alternating sides to work the hub free.
Clean and lube the cavity where the hub goes through the knuckle and reverse the process to re-install.

How to replace rear wheel bearing on driver side of 2002 chevrolet impala

You have a bearing hub (sealed unit) To remove it, first remove the nut from the axle in the hub center, Remove caliper and brake rotor. You can access the hub attachment bolts through the holes in the wheel flange. You may need to put a chisel between the hub and knuckle (keep alternating sides) to break it free (they generally get pretty rusted in) use a good amount of solvent. Once it's out, clean the cavity and put a swipe of grease inside so new one goes in more easily. draw it tight evenly and replace remainder of what you removed. If it is extremely rusted you can rent a slide hammer to get it out but generally with a bit of patience they do break free.

Can't get my rotors off the front of my 2003 chevy avalanche

if you have removed the two allen bolts from the caliper bracket and removed the caliper, and it still won't come off, then hit the rotor with a rubber hammer, and it'll come right off. They get a little rust where they rest on the hub and can be slightly resistant to coming off.

Your car has a hub assembly for a wheel bearing to get this off you need to jack your car up, Take off the tire, Remove the 2 bolts behind the caliper to take the caliper off, remove the rotor ( you may need to hit it with a hammer to get it off as they tend to rust onto the hub) Then there is 3 bolts on the hub remove them to take the hub off and install the new hub. Hope this helps.
