Default Fixing the wifes truck

The wheel hub on my wifes truck was making noise, so I picked up a new hub and went to replacing it.

Took far more time getting the old one off then it did putting the new on on.

Had a little extra time so I cleaned up the shop, it really needed it. Then I decided to run some hard line from the air compressor. Tapped in to the tank and put on a ball valve.

Then hooked up a regulator and ran a 3/4" id hose to the wall. From here I will use steel pipe.

It'* a 2005 Montana.

Took about a hour and a half. My Bonneville had a nice notch to tap a screwdriver in to and it came right out. This one is flush all the way around. I put a bunch of penetrating oil, then I heated it with a torch. It took a fair amount of hitting the screwdriver to get it to move. then I got a small screwdriver in and opened up the gap and was able to pry it out. I cleaned it up and the new one went right in.

Not sure if it'* the same as the 2000+ I know my 97 the bolt goes from the outside in. On this one the bolt goes from the inside out and threads in to the hub. The old hub was really hard to turn by hand. I would say it was bad.

i think that is the same as the 2000+ looks really familiar and the way it mounts is hitting it dead on the head to being the same one

Great, I fix one thing and she finds something else to grumble about. She'* picking up a new power steering pump. And she wants the struts changed, those will have to wait a bit. I find it funny that when I'm in the shop working on my car, it'* wasting my time, when I'm working on someone else' car, I'm wasting my time, but when it'* her truck, I better drop everything and fix it.
