How do you change front wheel bearings on a 1995 Pontiac Transport?
The 1996 Pontiac Grand Am is a front wheel drive application. This vehicle has sealed (non-serviceable) and bolt-in wheel/hub bearing units. Removing and replacing them involves removing the wheels/tires, brake rotors and then unbolting the wheel/hub bearings. The General Motors OE front hubs are AC Delco #2025K.
The front wheels bearings are sealed in an assembly. You cannot replace the bearings, just the entire assembly. I priced out the units about 5 years ago and I was quoted anywhere from $150 to $225 each. I asked the parts suppliers if replacing them is a DIY job and most advised against trying it myself.
are you talking about the front or back? the back bearings are a non serviceable part, the in order to change the bearings u need to change the hub, the front bearings can be separated, but chances are if you have to change your hub, bearings will have to be changed also, you will damage the bearings trying to remove them and put them back in, so my answer is yes. get the parts yourself…
The bearings are not usually replaceable because the hub, ABS speed sensor, and bearings are all combined in one non servicable unit that sells new for nearly $600.00. You can buy used hub assemblies much cheaper and they work fine. If the hub assembly is in other wise good condition, it may be possible to press them out of the hub and get new bearings from a bearing supply business. I've never had one that…
