Best Answer

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.

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.

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.
