Anyone ever changed wheel hub assembly?

Asked by Jul 11, 2008 at 04:30 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Venture

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If so, how hard is it and did you do both sides?  How long did it take. Our front right one is going out but we wonder if we should just go ahead and just change both.

its really not to hard to change after you take the wheel off take the brake caliper and rotor off there will be a big somtimes gold color nut in the center of the wheel studs its very tight so you might need help getting that off if you dont have an impact wrench that will release the axle from the hub and there will be three bolts on the back side of the spindle holding the hub on take those out and the hub will come out then you can put it back together the reverse of how you took it out the hub bolts and the axle bolt just need to be tightened to recomended spec and also the wheel. as for replacing the other side i wouldn't right now unless you really want to it will go out sometime GM's tend to have a problem with hubs but you dont have to replace it now. it will take a couple of hours your first time its not to bad.

Actually the gold nut is OEM, it's called the axle nut, and it holds the end of the drive axle in the hub assembly.

You should have a hub nut and it could be pretty difficult to change. When I did it, it had gotten so hot that the nut fused into the threads of the bolt and I had to saw it off. But you could have better luck then me. Also once you get that bolt off, your home free haha

Takes about 30-45 minutes per side. You'll need a 2 foot breaker bar AND MAKE SURE to use new spindle nuts.
