Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Alero

2 Answers

My 99 Alero has had the left front hub assembly repalaced for the fourth time in 2 1/2 years. I had it replaced three weeks ago and it has the same problem again and needs to be replaced again. Any idea why this keeps happening could there be some other underlying cause?

I had the same problem on an 2000 Alero. I had to replace the hub and spindle assembly plus the knuckel that it bolts on to. For some reason, the first one that was replaced was installed kinda crooked and it warped the knuckel. It seemed to fix the problem though.

Is the wheel bearing failing or the wheel sensor inside? Is the vehicle totally stock or does it have aftermarket whells on it? Some aftermarket wheels have the wrong offset and put excessive strain on the hubs if you have the wrong wheels change back to the factory wheels and see if your problem goes away.

Front passenger wheel is in at the top by 1/2 inch rubbing noise started when making left turns. I think wheel hub assembly is bad. Also inboard brake pad completely worn down. Can bad struts cause this?

Sounds like a bad hub/bearing, could also be a front axle issue though.

I have never heard in my almost 15 years as a mechanic of struts causing one pad to wear uneven, this more sounds like an issue of one of two things, bad caliper, or when you had your brakes replaced whoever did the job did not replace that pad.

Wheel hub assembly front 1997 sebring

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the front tire and wheel.
  3. Remove the steering knuckle assembly, as described previously.
  4. Remove the bolts attaching the hub/bearing assembly to the steering knuckle.
  5. Remove the hub/bearing assembly from the front of the steering knuckle. The bolt-in front wheel bearing used on the vehicle is transferable to a replacement steering knuckle, if the bearing is in serviceable condition. If the bearing will not come out of the steering knuckle, it can be tapped out using a soft-faced hammer.

  1. Thoroughly clean all parts, including the hub/bearing assembly mounting surfaces on the steering knuckle.
  2. Install the replacement hub/bearing assembly onto the steering knuckle, aligning the bolt holes of the bearing flange to the knuckle.
  3. Install the attaching bolts and tighten evenly to make sure the bearing is square to the face of the steering knuckle. Tighten the attaching bolts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm) on Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring convertible and Breeze, or 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm) on Sebring coupe and Avenger.
  4. Install the steering knuckle assembly, as previously described.
  5. Install the tire and wheel.
  6. Lower the vehicle and check for proper operation.
