Default HELP! Left rear wheel bearing?

my pops said the wheel bearing is shot because when i put it it drive and accelerate i get an awful grinding nise and it feels like i have a flat tire almost. and when i engage the brakes they lock. So..... I tore apart the brake assembly and can't find out how to get to the wheel bearing and can find no diagrams online. Can anyone help?!?!?!

Can you give us the year of the vehicle?

Might be a good start, the high and mighty admins of BC have a book that has information about pre-87 Bonnevilles. I may be limited, but it will help get you on the right road

Oh and welcome to BC

Is that the same chassis as a 1982? Do you know?

Replacing/Repacking Front Wheel Bearings. That'* one of many jobs I don't miss. Along with with replacing/adjusting points, plugs and condensor EVERY 12,000 miles. Plus adjusting the timing with a timing light. Where have the "good times" gone? Actually, I'm glad those "good times" are gone!!!
