Richard DePas: Can't make out what torque you are specifying for the axle nut. Will you please clarify that? I have an '05 Malibu Maxx LT.
Pikeman50: A-1 !!!
Lewey8705: I replaced the wheel hub assembly, and am wondering how crucial it is to tighten the bolts to the specified "foot pounds"... (e.g., 85 foot lbs). I tighted the bolts so tight that I could not physically turn them anymore, but am wondering if not tightening them to that amount (also, how did you determine/calculate that number?) is dangerous? Thanks.
zacattack500: Thank you so much for the video!! It made it fast to accomplish, besides my mistakes to slow it.I do have a question if anyone can answer, it would be helpful. After assembling the wheel and hub back together i took it for a test drive, and there now was a grinding sound. I suspect it to be the dust plate flipped backwards or maybe brakes grinding the rotor. Any advice??
John Smith: 1AAP, I want to thank you for all the videos you make. You've helped me a great deal over the last few years. We now have an '09 Malibu and on passenger side while driving makes this loud whirring or humming noise and it keeps getting worse. What it sounds like is loud mud truck with big knobby tires. I took both front wheels off and there is no play while shaking it in any direction, both sides seem normal. I'm going to switch the front tires around today and see if the noise still comes from passenger side. If I switch the tires and the sound still comes from that side do you think it's the hub assembly? Thanks in advance.
Bishop Perez: How long will this take to do
Brandon s: I just replaced my hub assembly on the driver's side, so there's no more humming! However, not when I turn right, there's a grinding sound (different than before). Why is this? Should I have greased the hub assembly?
john dixon: Thank you very much this was a big help.
Mz T: Thank you so much for posting this video. (It was really illuminating.)
If you don't mind I've got a few question:
1) Is it more or less the same procedure to replace the "rear" hub?
2) When you buy a "hub" is the wheel bearing part of the assembly?
3) And lastly, how much can I expect to be charge for labor from my mechanic for a rear hub on a Lincoln Mark v111?
Thank you so much for your help. Cheers!

Could the wheel bearing also be bad even if the wheel has no play whatsoever? I'm getting grinding noises from the front passenger wheel when I turn right and brake ever so often.
If it's not grinding when you apply the brakes, but more when you're driving and taking a turn, it could be a bad wheel bearing. We carry new ones on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

rads ter: Who gives thumbs down on a helpful video , don't watch then play gta or clean your room .
1A Auto Parts: 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?
ZekeMesquite: Literally just saved me 200 dollars. Hell yea!
1A Auto Parts: 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?
1A Auto Parts: 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!
1A Auto Parts: You issue could be with bad tires. Over time tires can break down and create a ton of road noise.
