In this video I go through the process of replacing a front wheel bearing and brakes on a Pontiac G6 GT. Pretty easy job... even when the snow salt and slush is dripping on you 😊 -Enjoy!

    Never ever get tired of watching brake and bearing jobs. You always make it look so easy! Please keep them coming. You are now a part of my morning and evening routine.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    The rotor is garbage. Put it on backwards and give it a whack with a 10 pound sledge. What brand of bearing do you like? Moog? Timken? I did my brakes on my 06 Caravan I bought last year. The rotors were a rusted mess as well as the calipers. Of course the pads were welded to the bracket. Find out that the washers did not come with the calipers. Almost impossible to find the matching washers. Live and learn.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert McGehee says:

    How did you diagnose that this wheel bearing was bad? I have the same car and I have a grinding noise coming from the wheel on acceleration that goes away after a few seconds. I can't determine from sound alone if it's the wheel bearing or the cv axle.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen says:

    We had a 1980-something Dodge Caravan. EVERY TIME we had anything done to it, it needed new CV boots and a catalytic converter. Every damned time.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dickerson says:

    I'm still a fan though.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dickerson says:

    No files on brake parts.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steveo66 says:

    I love how big nasty just makes it rain shmuts all over the place…

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Macluvin65 says:

    Pontiwhowhat??

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Cummings says:

    I didn't know you could polish rust! Love your channel!!

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

    do you like that purple permatex better than the 3m silicone grease or is it a price thing?

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

    any reason you don't use copper anti seize instead of the fluid film for an aluminum knuckle? btw, what do you think of blue loctite on the 3 hub bearing bolts?

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

    i would have no idea if i'm going too far with the die grinder. can you get a real tight shot of the surface as you're doing it?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Ghatti says:

    Had to laugh a little bit at Eric in this one. That wire wheel almost got him haha. Been there and have done it.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Overlin Alaniz says:

    I love the “break clean news” (breaking news) stinger. Lol

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

    A long time ago a old mechanic I worked with schooled me on how to properly use a file and that was to not drag back it backwards and never use a wire brush to clean a file. You did it right according to him. Good video!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Jaski says:

    These wheel bearings are a bear without pneumatic tools- air support is a godsend!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Armorer 94 says:

    The modular nature of GM bearing packs is a neat engineering solution to me.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johannes Isaksen says:

    Hi Erik, fun to see how you do this with brakes and wheel bearings. There is a big difference between the USA and Europe and Scandinavia in how this is done. We do not have extra rails in the caliper holder. Love from Norway.

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

    nothing is hard to do.if you can do it ,I can do it lol

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian 88 says:

    I'm not sure if big nasty rattled the hub off of the car or the car off of the hub🤣

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Heath says:

    I thought the brake cleaner sound effect was mandatory, but I've watched several videos that were all electrical repairs lately. Surely there is a way to fit it in!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Bambenek says:

    If I had Big Nasty I think I could do that job. As far as wheel bearing jobs go that was a walk in the park.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zr1sparky1 says:

    This camera doesn't minimize shake as much as your recent camera and the colors are off compared to this one looks like everything is more green for what it's worth!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ugyen sampang says:

    thousands of auto youtubers from all southern USA need to work atleast a week with SMA in rust belt upstate NY for real world experiences. especially chrisfix and scotty😂😂😂

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SC Flooring says:

    That was a close one on the wire wheel I’ve done that a time or two! Couldn’t help but to laugh tho! Great job as always Dr. O keep them coming!!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Geo Shadrick says:

    Thank you I need a little toot brake clean peace out

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Yankitis says:

    A 4lb sledge knocked the hub off my 2011 Malibu pretty quick

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve says:

    I really like how you make it a point to always mention cleaning the caliper bracket. As resident of the upper peninsula of Michigan, I understand rust. The last few years I've found a needle scaler works awesome for caliper bracket rust removal. If course, your mileage may vary

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GooDviBeS says:

    Pull out big nasty and give er the beans!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Visiko says:

    October and already hitting it hard with the road salt.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Enrico Pallazzo says:

    Damn, you guys have enough snow already out there to have that much salt on vehicles!?!? I better get going on my fluid film undercoat lol

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gto 55 says:

    Good job

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrea Luna Lopez says:

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kurt McCarthy says:

    It’s a foot operated stopping press. Must clean the surface of the hammer surger 😂🤣.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kurt McCarthy says:

    Do you use silicone grease in your electrical connections, or something similar ?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kurt McCarthy says:

    Ohhh Big Nasty, you make my life so much easier. 😁😉🇺🇸

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars biz4two biz4 says:

    brake related videos are my FAV!! haha

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill massey says:

    Milwaukee for cordless tools. just sayin'

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RangerNewbie says:

    About the caliper grease- is there a reason you put it between the caliper and shim hardware as opposed to between the pad and shim?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Desmond Borcherds says:

    Detail in the picture seems much better with this camera.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars luc melo says:

    what kind of gloves are those ?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cratecruncher says:

    Camera good. Salty, drippy car disgusting. I don't know how you guys in the Northeast deal with that mess every winter. I guess it's better than garbage trucks in July, lol.
