The wheel bearings are part of a hub on the 1999 Grand Am. A new hub is a little over $100 dollars. To get it off, you must first pull off the wheel, the brake caliper and bracket that holds the brake pads. There are 3 bolts on the back side of the strut tower that need to be removed. You will need a 36mm impact socket to remove the axle nut. An electric or air impact wrench will ease the removal of the nut. You will strain yourself if you just try to use a ratchet. A slide hammer will need to be used to separate the hub from the axle. Make sure that you disconnet the wire plug going to the traction control that is connected to the hub. Be careful when using the slide hammer so as not to pinch the wires from the traction control when the hub is completely loosened from the axle.

You can't replace just the wheel bearings. You have to replace the whole hub assembly. Costs about 200 bucks per wheel at a repair shop. I have had both of mine replaced.

Grand Ams eat wheel bearings, if one is bad you might as well replace both of them as the other will go out in a month or so, I had a 94 and replaced 6 wheel bearings in that car in 113,000 miles.

The front wheel bearings, of a Pontiac vibe, can be replaced by first removing the front wheel. Next, remove the axle end cap. Remove the bearing and reverse the process to install the new bearing.
