Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel assembly. Remove the drive axle nut. Remove the brake rotor. Remove the mounting bolts (1) from the hub and bearing assembly (3). Remove the hub and bearing assembly (1) from the steering knuckle (2) and drive axle shaft.

Install is the opposite of removal.

Torque the axle nut to 70 lb ft.


The Axle nut is torqued to 200 Ft. Lbs. It's the wheel bearing mounting bolts that are torqued to 70 ft. lbs. This is right out of GM factory info. I am replacing one myself and do not have the correct size Torx but it looks like a Torx 55. I have one but it's 1/2" Drive and won't fit thru the wheel hub hole so as to reach the bolt-crapola!

I assume that it will be like a 1998 Sienna van. There is a sealed bearing in the hub assembly and you change the whole assembly. There are four bolts that hold the hub assembly to the suspension.

If you're trying to replace the rear wheel bearing and all you can find is the rear hub assembly, it probably means that you can't get just the bearing. Many vehicle manufacturers press the bearing into the assembly at the factory and there is no way to replace just the bearing. If they're offering the assembly, that's probably what you'll need to buy.

Remove the 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier inside door panel. The mayor assembly will be visible. Remove the retaining bolts and wiring harness. Reverse the process to install the new mirror.
