Before jacking have a friend apply preasure to the brake peddal and loosen 36mm wheel nut 1/4 turn. Jack up and remove lug nuts, wheel and tire. Remove 2 bolts holding caliper and slide off caliper. Remove 36mm nut. Remove disk ,brake shoe retracting spring on (top), remove brake shoe adjusting spring (bottom), remove brake adjuster screw and shoe hold down springs. Remove emergency shoes.( When reinstalling set shoe dia. to 107mm)(4.212") Remove nut and bolt from toe link. Remove nut and bolt from upper ball joint. Connect a puller to lug studs and push center shaft to push out splined halfshaft. Finally remove the lower ball joint nut and bolt. Remove the wheel knuckle hub and bearing as an assembly. On a bench remove 3 bolts holding the knuckle. Press out hub from bearing using a good size press as the bearing is a good size. Remove retainer ring holding the bearing in the knuckle.(make sure you reinstall the same way as one side is tapered). Reinstall a new hub and bearing. Torque 36mm nut to 203 ft.lbs. I used Federal-Mogul bearing # 516008 (bearing dimensions are approximately 85mm o.d.x 47mm i.d.x 45mm wide. As you can see that a good size press may be needed. I used a 36mm socket to remove wheel nut. I paid $150 for the hub and bearing.

How do you replace front rotors on your 1993 Ford Festiva?

You need to remove the entire spendle assembly. Lay it on an open vise and with a correct size rod, from the inside, drive the center out until the rotor and outside bearing drops out. Do not disturb the bearing. Remove the four bolts from the rotor, which you can now get too and the rotor will come off. Replace the rotor with a new one and lay the spendle assembly on a hard surface and carefully drive the shaft back into the spendle. If you have a "slide puller" you can actually remove the assembly while the spendle is still on the car.

How do you replace the hub bearing assembly on a 1999 Cavalier?

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. Adam 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!

How long can you drive with bad front hub bearings?

Not knowing the extent of wear I can't answer that question with any degree of accuracy. I suggest replacing the bad hub/bearing assembly if you can hear the bearing rumble.
