1aauto: You may want to check all of the other suspension pieces around that area to see if anything else is worn out that might be causing this to happen.1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Roger Furnival: Thanks - your videos are excellent and your printed information is precise, concise and straight up. I have major issues with replacing the right front axle bearing on a 1998 Toyota 4Runner. There was play in the hub so I pressed in a new bearing, reassembled all the components and drove four miles. I heard the sound of the rotor scraping against the caliper, raised the the vehicle on a lift and gave it the 'four point test' and there was similar play as before I replaced the bearing. Ideas?
1aauto: on vehicles that you can access the axle nut through the rim, you will want to do it on the ground. If you have rims that do not have a hole large enough to accommodate a socket, you will want to lower it down to the point where the opposite tire is touching just enough to get the correct torque.
Kausar Khan: Thank you!! In what step should the center axle nut be tightened? When the car is back on the ground? Or right after torquing the three colts?
1aauto: According to our books we show that they should be 173Ft Lbs.
Kausar Khan: Thanks for the video. In getting ready to do this on my car. I think you stitched your brake job video to this and missed putting the center axle nut back on. What is the torque spec for the center axle nut? In what step should that be put on? Thanks!
1aauto: You issue could be with bad tires. Over time tires can break down and create a ton of road noise.
rudeboylll: Hello, I have a 2006 malibu ltz i just replaced both front hub bearings but the roaring noise is still there. What else could be the problem?
1aauto: It's anti-seize. You can find it in your local auto parts store.
Mrshka Lili: What is this product that you spotted a brush before installing the bearings? I do not understand what you say the name
Charles Lloyd: This is the best your video was on target and as simple as ABC. Thank You
1aauto: This video bF4ZUPhaWCI (copy&paste into YouTube search), is for the 06 Impla. We also carry the hubs for your Chevy Impala with free shipping on our website. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Steven St. Clair: Will the installation on this video apply for a 2006 Chevy Impala?
Pablo Aponte: Thank you for your time, and share these videos.
1aauto: You may want to inspect the wheel bearings.
marco3055: Hi there, i have a problem with my 2004 Chevy Malibu classic. I head a noise that is produced only when the car is in motion. It's almost like the sound made by those trucks with big tires. The difference is when i had someone else taking off with my car, i can't hear a sound from outside, i can ear it only in the inside. The steering wheel does not vibrate even at 65/70 mph. No bad sound when turning. I was told it could possibly be the wheel bearings. I can't feel any shaking. Any other guess?
Carlo Delgado: Hi can you do one video of the same thing but in a Ford focus
1aauto: You should check both for excessive play and go from there. You might find that there is something else like the lower ball joint causing the issue.
TheReusie: there is a clanking in my wheel and my hub shakes do i need to swap it? or is it the shocks
norcalgal55: We just replaced a front hub on my Malibu that we ordered from you and I just wanted to say THANK YOU! The car is no longer making a terrible noise and it rides so much better! You also helped us with my turn signal switch when it went out. You are the best! Thanks Again!!!!
1aauto: If it's a 2009 or 2010 Chevy Malibu it should work fine.
DwDrums2000: Will this work on the 2009-2012 Malibu? Thanks!
1aauto: These hubs are self contained, they already come pre-lubricated there isn't a way to grease them.
binaryman96: was just curious what kind of lubricant you used when installing the new wheel hub/bearing?
1aauto: If everything was followed correctly in the video and you are having the issues you are, the bearing is probably bad since there is a grinding noise. You might want to recheck all of your work, including re-installing the brakes. If everything is ok, you might want to return the bearing for a replacement.
eayala5: I used this video as a guide to install my front wheel bearings on my Pontiac G6 but somehow i failed. I followed every step as shown in this video but now my ABS sensor lights up and when I press onto the brakes i can feel and hear a grinding noise against the pedal. Anyone know what the problem may be? Could the ABS connector be defected? all the help and advice is appreciated. thanks
1aauto: All wheel bearings are similar in the concept of how they are replaced just with your grand prix there might be different sized bolts.
Miguel J: Would these steps be essentially the same if replacing the rear wheel hub assembly on a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix?
1aauto: I'm not sure if it's a new wheel bearing that you have bought from us.If it is call our sales line and we can pull your order up in the system and help you out with this, if it's a defective part. Our main sales number is 888-844-3393. Tony @ 1aauto.com
ThePossom813: I actually took it to the dealership and had the codes pulled, the new bearing had a bad sensor on it. Thanks for the video.
1aauto: You may want to check the ABS connections to the front hubs to see it they're connected and seated properly.
ThePossom813: I followed everything you showed, the only difference I found was my axle nut is 36mm, the 35 would not fit. Also, after completely reassembled, the ABS and T/C lights come on at about 15mph and don't go off until the car is turned off, how do I fix this issue.
RavensGawkStudio: Great video but that hub nut just magically appears as being installed when the rotor goes back on LOL.. Don't forget to install the nut BEFORE you lower the car to torque it!
1aauto: It should be replaced as soon as possibly. If left to long there's is a possibility of it self destructing. We carry the Timkin wheel bearings on our website 1aauto.com or you can call Tony @ 866-403-3393 Hope this helps you out.
jw200: How dangerous is if the wheel as pretty significant play? (Visible even by eye)?
I have heard that old bearing can just "lock up" by itself one day and it could cause complete wheel "lock up" also and accident.
valkaek: thank you for speeding up the video on those parts. That saved me a bit of headache! Got any vids on 1998 ford contour? I'll go check now.
kradhaissem: Thanks for posting this video, it's the only one I've been able to find on the Malibu
1aauto: You should not have to hit the axle hard enough to do any damage. If you give it one good hit 99 times out of 100 it is going to move, in my experience. If it doesn't move you need to use an axle press.
Donald Bain: Nice job, like your style well explained.
Rick S: Were those aftermarket red shims for the old brake pads or did you install new brake pads all together?
