Come along with Eric O. at the SMA shop as he goes through the procedure of changing a rear hub assembly / wheel bearing on a 2005 Buick Lacrosse. This vehicle has an ABS speed sensor built into the hub but some however do not. This is a pretty standard procedure for many makes and models of GM vehicles.

    How to change just the bearing keeping the original hub?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Maverick says:

    Eric I have a 2001 Olds Alero , replacing the rear hub and bearing assemble and not sure on the torque on the 4 x 13" bolts to hold the hub on.. thinking 65 ft-lb..

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SirGolfAlot says:

    Makes sense. No reason to have a rear axle on a front wheel rive vehicle. Good video

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Reyes says:

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    You remind me of a friend I had growing up! Very cool to see… Thx!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    I just got my stubby. Never used one before. I use it exclusively except when I need something really snug (axle nut).

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    Does anybody know where to buy good bearings. I tried ebay. Thought I got a good deal. These bearings make more noise and vibration than my really bad bearing. Some say Moog or Timken, but I have learned that these two now import from China.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy Cornell says:

    Would the rear hub bearing if it’s bad make the top of the tire push in and the bottom stick out ??

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MARCEL VANDERLEY says:

    Great video worked like a charm for me! Only one issue,while putting it back together the last bolt I tightened with a socket wrench and broke the bolt! Now to find a replacement bolt! Lol

    Aluminum Oxide….Not Good to Breathe!!….With Some NaCl….

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Butler says:

    BE SURE TO TAKE THE WHEEL OFF FIRST LOL

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven W says:

    I snapped off one of the 4 bolts holding the bearing assembly to the rear knuckle. Is there any way to extract the broken bolt or must the knuckle be replaced?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bass-Man says:

    Why doesn't anyone ever say the torque? Does anyone know what to torque those 4 bolts to?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brett says:

    If I don't have an air hammer is this something to attempt in the driveway? regular small sledge and chisel work

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars outtkast outtkast says:

    Thanks

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne's Guns & Stuff says:

    Great work but I'll recommend one thing. Wear a mask with all that dust s**. Because you don't know what you're breathing in there. I'm 57 years old and I got a lung disease from breathing in dust from old Barns and pigeons and crap. And if only I wash my hands and wore a mask when I was a kid playing in my dad's barns and s** I wouldn't have this disease now and I'd be healthy and a lot of strength and and doing mega work and making lots of money. And now every so often I suffer with breathing problems and high blood pressure from this lung disease that I have, and taking medication just to get by. So I highly recommend wearing a mask it only takes 2 seconds to put it on and it keeps most of that s*** out of your mouth and your lungs most important

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Moore says:

    do you really have no concern about the massive quantities of brake dust you breath in on the regular?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Munch Ball says:

    Thanks a lot for the video.. just saved me 450 at the shop… basically if you can change brakes you can change these Gm hubs

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Snap-off says:

    The instructions on my 2011 SRX said to remove the ABS sensor too, but just using my own sense and checking with some measurement I've confirmed that you don't need to at least on that one, it sits right behind the reluctance ring, and won't interfere or be harmed by a wheel hub assembly replacement.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P Burrell says:

    Excellent

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kubash says:

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Uoy Ebut says:

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Cotton says:

    Hi Eric! Will this work for a 2004 Chevy Impala?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Benjamin Chevalier says:

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sgt Anderson says:

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A M says:

    Thanks SMA! I'm doing my rear bearing hubs this week (great vacation) on my 2000 Grand Prix. Hopefully it's similar enough.
    You've also helped me with replacing the water pump on the same car after seeing your video for GM water pump replacement. Which is the first video I watched of SMA and got hooked almost 5 years ago!

    I HAD to look it up…
    The definition of cattywampus, often spelled catawampus, is not lined up or not arranged correctly, or diagonally. An example of something cattywampus are the positions of the items on the top of a coffee table after a two year old has been playing with them and moving them around.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Taylor Unis says:

    Ok why can’t all wheel bearing bolts be like that?!?!?!?!
