The bearing is a sealed pressed in bearing and requires special tools and puller to get it in and out, you might get the old one out with a hammer and punch, but if you don't have the right tool to install the new one it will be toast and fit only for the trash can.

SOURCE: I need front whell bearings

When you remove the bolts that hold the struts to the wheel assembly, turn the nuts lose and then tap out the bolts. I was able to grab using the pozi lock pullers (OEM number 27107) that keeps the jaws pushed against the ridge of the race while in the extraction process. I had to jury rig something for the hole in the hub. I used a small nut and the flat side of a horseshoe to bridge the hole (Anything similar would probably work). Note that anytime using a puller that you have to tighten the puller as tight as you can with your fingers then using a hammer rap sharply the shaft of the puller one time to help dislodge the race. Repeat this process until you can turn the handle without the rapping. As the race pulls off the hub, I used a large washer and a nut to take up the space between the side of the horseshoe and the hub to get the race fully off.

Car makes a noise when driving straight forward at times but always when turning. what's that about?


Unfortunately...if brakes and tires are fine...usually this is a whell bearing...does the noise get faster and slower as your Malibu goes...? A wheel bearing replacement is about $240. installed with new parts...a qualified mechanic needs to do this repair...hope this helps:)
