    Three hub bolts are 13mm can't remember the axle size though but I can tell you it's torqued very tight (about 175 foot lbs)and you will need a solid (not flex head) breaker bar and a four foot pipe over it (or an air impact gun) to remove it.

The hub/bearing assembly is mounted to the steering knuckle and is retained by three mounting bolts accessible from the back of the steering knuckle. The hub/bearing unit is not serviceable and must be replaced as an assembly if the bearing or the hub is determined to be defective.

Replace left front wheel bearing on 2002 yukon 4x4 abs


Remove the axle nut. Put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the hub from spinning. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Unplu the abs harness. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. Reverse to install. Make sure you torque the three bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle and the axle nut to the correct torques spec. Failure to do so will cause premature bearing failure. Also use a good quality bearing. SKF is a good brand. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I want to take to remove the front tires and re-do the spindle bearings. Now I got the tire,caliper and nut off. There are 3 star nuts attached to a plate which holds the rod. Are these pressed on...


There is no servicing of those bearings. you replace the entire hub assembly as a sealed unit. If you need to replace the hub, break the three 12point bolts loose and put a cheap socket over each one (alternate) and drive them in with a good hammer. Back them out about a half inch and keep hitting them 'till the hub breaks free. User lots of wd40 on the parting line between the hub ears and the backing plate. You will destroy the socket you are hammering on but its better than damaging the bolt heads.
