How to remove the front wheel bearing assembly


You can't compare a 1500 Chevy with a terrain. First remove the wheel, then the brake caliper, bracket and rotor. Remove the 36mm nut securing the axle . pivot knuckle to removethe bearing aattachment bolts . make sure to disconnect the abs harness as this is part of the assembly. Nay have to use a hammer to get the hub out of the knuckle. Install in reverse, torquing the axle but to 165lbs.

I need instructions on how to replace the wheel bearings on a 2008 hhr


The wheel bearings for ALL GM cars 2007-2009 ARE covered under the powertrain warranty...5 year 100K warranty that is. ...if you have a 2007-2009 GM car- even if it is a USED car and you are the second or 3rd owner? It's COVERED. call dealer to find out! While the wheel is on ground, loosen the large nut on the axle, Then jack it up, remove the caliber and rotor, unhook the ABS connector if you have it, remove the axle nut all the way, and then the 3 bolts that hold the hub assembly, tap the hub assy with a hammer until it slides out and the install the new one. the bolts that hold the hub on are behind backing plate. if you cant get to top bolt for hub, you can push axle in to make more room. make sure you torque all bolts. if you can not get torque wrench on back hub bolts. then tighten as tight as hard as you can with a socket wrench. but put correct torque on axle nut. call auto-zone and they should be able to tell you the axle nut torque. if no, call or visit dealer for this info. have a good day!!

How to remove rear wheel bearings on my 1999 Ford Expedition and how do i know what pulley to rent/buy?


The 1999 Ford Expedition is built on an F150 platform. The Expedition uses a 9.75-inch rear axle. The axles are retained with C-clips at the end of the axle shaft, inside the differential carrier. The axle bearings are of the roller type. A failed axle bearing can manifest itself as a noise at the rear wheel or gear oil leaking past the oil seal. When replacing axle bearings, the oil seals must also be replaced.
Torque the caliper mounting bolts to 30 foot-pounds. Torque the bolt to 20 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket.

I have a 1998 chevy cavalier and i need to replace the front passenger side wheel bearing. is this difficult?


There pretty easy. You'll need a 34 or 36mm axle nut socket, a torque wrench, and a basic set of tools.

The hardest part will be removing the axle nut. once that is off you remove the caliper and rotor. I like to remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle so I can swing the axle back and forth to get at the wheel bearing bolts. this can be done by removing the not from the outer tie rod and hitting the part of the knuckle th tie rod goes through without hitting the tie rod so you don't damage it. After a couple of hits it will pop out.

Unplug the ABS sensor (if equipped). remove the three bolts holding the bearing to the knuckle, usually a 13 0r 15 mm socket and a swivel may help.

Once the bolts are out the bearing will come out. They can be frozen into the hub a little so you may have to get a little aggressive with a hammer to get it out.

make sure you note the position of the metal bracket behind the bearing (if equipped) and how the ABS harness is positioned (if equipped) it is important those go back the same way.

It is also vitally important to torque the axle nut to the proper spec after the new bearing is installed. Failure to do so will result in the new bearing failing prematurely. Cheaper isn't always better so get a good quality bearing.

heres some pictures to help. They are from a venture but very simular to a cavalier or any GM.

Wheels bearing stuck rotors wont come off. Howdo Iget them off?


I hope you ready for some fun. I just did mine on the same car. first off DO NOT listen to the idiots on the internet. They are stuck for a reason. you can't just pull them off. unless you can bench press 4000 lbs. that is!!! you need to remove upper ball joints lower ball joints then steering arm. the whole hub assembly will then come off. this is assuming you already took the 36mm axle nut off. next remove the 4 bolts on the rear wheel bearing assembly. and take in to machine shop they will have to press out bearings so that you can replace your rotors. as long as your doing that you might as well have them put in new bearings at the same time. this is not a job you want to do again anytime soon. also I replaced the lower ball joints because my were somewhat bad. I am saving you a big headache here. they charged me 20 bucks per side for pressing bearings in and out and 20 more for pressing new ball joints in and out. new bearings cost me 40 per side. so all in all it cost me 300 bucks for everything. but at a shop ( I've already checked) this is a $750 job. Have fun!!!! At least you know you'll be saving money. by the way. the front axle nut is a 36mm torqued to 180ft.lbs. for your info. also wheel torque is 81 ft lbs.

Front wheel bearings 98 jeep cherokee 2WD


You will need several tools to replace the bearing besides a socket set of metric and standard sizes to remove the wheel and brake caliper. A 36mm socket (may be rented at some auto parts stores) An Impact Wrench for the 36mm socket (air or electric should work) A torque wrench (IMPORTANT!)- the 3 rear bearing bolts (12mm?) need to be torqued properly or else they will fail and cause the wheel to separate, i believe they need to be at 75 ft/lbs. Please check. Do not attempt to do this yourself unless you have the proper tools and know how to use them.  I recommend getting at least the Haynes manual that the stores have or buying the Dealers Service Manual (expensive but thorough and usually available on ebay!)
