Default Wheel Bearing Hub Assembly Replacement Guide - GTP

My brother and I just replaced both front wheel bearing hub assemblies on my '01 Grand Prix GTP. I took pictures and created a guide. He did all the work, I mostly just watched.

Hopefully it will help some of you get this job done. It'* not that difficult and we'll all have to replace at least a few wheel bearings if you plan on keeping your car for very long.

ooofff. You shouldn't have used an impact wrench when putting the hub nut back on, thats a no-no, and the last car quest hub I got said NOT to use the 100ft-lbs torque spec but to uses 180(?) instead on the instruction sheet in the box. its been 2 years so please check your boxs instructions if you still have it.

Just to let you know, when removing the axle nut, you can do it without having to install the spare tire. Just take a large center punch or screwdriver in insert it through the caliper in into the fins on the rotor. This will hold it in place while you remove the axle nut. I just replaced mine on my 2000 Cadillac Seville (which has the same type of hub and axle bearing) and it worked perfectly. The setup is the same on my 2000 Bonneville SSEi. Hope this helps save time and takes out a step in the process.
