But how do I even get the hub off to take it to get bearing pressed out?
Back or front?
You wheel have to remove wheel,undo cv axel nut,then remove strut,remove cv axel,then remove lower control arm bushings and bolts,then remove cv axel out of bearing housing,then you can take the tie rod end loose and remove wheel bearing hub.Go to you tube and wacth a video on how to do this.
No luck on YouTube I have already looked .... Why can't they just make it simple to come off lol ....
Its a tuff job on the front ones,back not so bad.
If I take all that apart to remove Hub will this screw up my alignment?
No ,as long as you mark your tie rod end before you remove it,
Ok ... Ok so when I'm driving and turn left it sounds like my wheel is grinding this is why I think it's the wheel bearing ... I have checked everything nothing is ribbing and even new breaks ... The rotors are smooth what's your take on this
Hi do you have to get the wheel bearing pressed out or can you do it your self?
you have to press them.atd 8625 is the tool kit you can use.getting the hub off is the challenge!gm part number for that is J37105-1.ive tried using the otc 4579 slide hammer to take the hub off,didnt work.my bearings are still to good!it wouldnt come off,most of the videos i seen the bearings come apart when using that tool to remove the hub ,then you have to cut the race and pry/hit with hammer to get it off.
With all the tools you'd have to purchase for this one-time job, and probably a day's work (for the non mechanic) You'd probably be better off just taking it to a shop. Did this on my 2005 Camry, cost around $200 total from a local tire store.
