golfgodd1: Hello. I have an 03 alero. The axle nut actually has a metal cage around
it. Does this change anything or do you just remove the nut and cage at
Donkey Cruncher: It crazy because I can do this repair with my eyes closed I have replaced 4
sets on my 01 olds alreo since 09 they seem to go every 15000-20000 miles
no matter what brand you buy. Either the speed sensor goes or they grind.
Jeremy Ridgley: Well, you screwed up in the first 2 minutes by compressing your caliper
without breaking your bleeder screw loose. Bad idea to push that old,
nasty fluid back up into the system with ABS or with any type of brakes at
all. Next time, put a bleeder buddy on that bleed valve, brake it loose
and push the fluid out of there.
tony25676: is it the same with a 1999 oldsmobile 88?
Terrance Collins: The oldsmobile alero is basically a Pontiac Grand Am correct? So would this
video also help if I were to change the hub assembly on a Grand Am?
1A Auto Parts: The wheel bearing is a complete assembly and comes as a wheel hub bearing
assembly. The wheel bearing by itself is not serviceable, it comes as a
complete hub. We carry new ones on our website with free shipping. Check us
out at 1aauto.com 888-844-3393 Hope this helps you out. Have a great day!
Steve Potter: I'm in the process of doing the front hubs on my 2001 Alero. The axle nut
socket for that year is a 36mm.
1A Auto Parts: It shouldn't. Usually what happens is that the sensor itself tends to go
1A Auto Parts: Thanks for checking us out. We're always here when you need us. 1aauto.com
Eddee Williams: I have a question, would i be able to remove that middle nut without an
Impact wrench? I cant afford one but i do have a breaker bar and the socket
for it. Would that work? If not do you think an electric impact wrench
would be strong enough?
Chris Sobel: Very Nice, Informative, and helpful video.
1A Auto Parts: Honestly the only real option for you is to do an engine rebuild. Putting
in an additive to the engine is a band aid to the real issue and really is
not going your oil pump and justice. You will wear out other parts of the
engine quicker by putting in additives to the engine oil that are meant to
1A Auto Parts: You shouldn't have any issues removing it with a ratchet and a socket.
Darkcity55: I own a 2001 alero 3.4 engine, I have Noisey lifters that just start making
clicking noise everytime I accelerate... I put some Lucus in there with the
oil, It had calm down a little......People suggested for me to Try Marvel
Mystery and try up grading my gas from Reg to Premium.......What you think??
vincenttetuaniii: Yes thats correct. It's a complete deal. It's the same thing with my 99
Ford Explorer. And it is very important, VERY important to use a torque
wrench. I have no automotive knowledge and went through 2 wheel bearing
assemblies because I didn't torque right. It was alot easier back in the
day when all you had to do was take and replace just the bearings. But
times have changed and they include everything in one assembly. Which is
kinda cool too. Just more expensive. Good luck.
niceperson08: i have a 04 olds alero how do you know if you need to replace the wheel
Luis Sanchez: hello i had a question i have a 2000 nissan maxima it has a vacume leak but
i cant find it and will this cause any problems with the idling recently

turns off even if i press the gas pedal all the way down it idles around 3
1A Auto Parts: @TheOutwiththeold You can pretty much buy them from anywhere that sells
1nerdswag5: hey ive got a 2001 oldmobile alero, i need to change the wheel bearing, it
makes a horrible sound while im driving but when i make left turns its
quiet.....my step dad doesnt think its the hub but the bearing itself. how
would i change that??? im not sure how long someone was driving it like
that before me but ive had the car since january and he told me it could
eventually destroy the trnasmission, would you mind doing a video to show
me how to change this out??
1A Auto Parts: HI, if you search this video number in YouTube search eB9mrc4K0-c it should
pull up our wheel bearing replacement video for your Pontiac Grand Am. Hope
this helps you out. Have a great day. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Saleem Bakir-Bey: will this also work for an old 2001 intrigue? I'm getting "chk engine,
antilock & track off" lights on the dash although when chked there are no
codes listed. PS it display that a cadillac system is installed??? Any
comments or guidance is tremendously appreciated!!!! Thanks in advance!
jroc4949: would this stop the abs sensor
1A Auto Parts: @TheJackhammer81 The Craftsman ones seem to work fine.
Nicholas Miller: thanks for this video, helped out with communicating to another friend of
mine. I don't know if you'd prefer an alternative method, but with the
brake you can usually leave the caliper/pads/rotor all together and just
remove the 13mm bolts for the carrier to the hub, and then hang the whole
thing out of the way. It saves a few minutes, I usually do it this way just
to skip messing with a c-clamp. Also, using redline synthetic hub grease
would likely improve bearing life, I do it to my car.

1A Auto Parts: @luis7750 Yes this could cause you car to idle irratically if there's a
Jim Lockhart: Sorry niceperson08 for intruding on your comment but i couldnt find how to
make my own. my question to 1aauto is do you have any videos on how to
change the fuel filter on a 2001 alero?. sorry again niceperson08 i will
research on how to comment and wont do this to u again.Thanks buddy
TheOutwiththeold: Where do you get a press like that from?
1A Auto Parts: Normally a clicking noise has to do with wheel bearing or possibly
something going on with the brakes. Taking the wheel off and checking for
anything stuck in that area will give you a better idea of what is going on.
1A Auto Parts: Usually they'll make a high pitched noise at over 30 mph, or they may make
a grinding noise. Another sign that you may have a bad wheel bearing is
excess wear on the outer edge of your tires. Hope this helps you out.
1A Auto Parts: You may have to hit the old one with a sledge hammer to break it free. You
should be able to remove it using the method shown in the video.
kenhagerman: I have a 02 Alero 2 D always replacing wheel Bearings on it.
Mike Harris: Great video thanks! I did have to use the axle press (free loaner tool from
Autozone) but it actually just separated the hub from the bearing
component, basically breaking it in half. I had to chisel the rest of it
off of the steering knuckle, it was stuck so tightly due to rust.
TheJackhammer81: Hi. I'm looking to buy a torque wrench. Do you have a recommendation on
which brand I should look for.
1A Auto Parts: We currently do not have an auto repair video on that particular repair.
golfgodd1: you obviously are not in the rust belt? i've unfortunately never had one
come off this easy. and always have to wire wheel the knuckle before
reinstall. good video though. thanks from michigan.
1A Auto Parts: @golfgodd1 Thanks for checking out our auto repair video. We're actually
over here in Mass., so usually we're up against the same battle..lol. Have
a great day!
bicyclexc: Even thought Advance Auto Parts seems to have bought all your ad space, I
will remember 1aauto when I need to buy my oldsmobile new bearings. Thank
jon204: I had to replace my wheel bearings at 125995 miles now its good for another
