Make darn sure it isn't the tire first. Take the strut off, and have the bearing pressed.

T60 I believe. Make sure it have a chisel and a hammer because you will have a heck of a time getting that bearing out

The front have pads, and the back have drums. If you are needing to replace them, they cost around 60. What is it you needed to know?

I had a 1991 Chevy Cavalier and I needed to replace the flasher bulb as well. It took awhile but I found it under the drivers side dash. It's a circular shaped aluminum fuse.

Cam bearings, Rod and Main bearings. That will be all of the bearings required to replace when rebuilding a 350 engine.

You didn't say what you were working on, But it sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing Assembly and the front axel is moveing around and has gotten into the brake sensor sometime are another. Check and replace wheel bearing and sensor as needed.

A torque wrench is not required to remove the bearing. It is required to apply the correct loading to a nut or bolt when assembling. Because the fixture may have been in place for some time a greater force may be needed for removal, because of corrosion or dirt, than the original torque setting applied.

This job requires removing seven individual parts in the proper order and the use of special tools for removal and reseating of the replacement bearing and seal. It's probably not a job that should be taken on by anyone who needed to ask this question.

The part store that I went to did not have a specific tool to use so I purchased a 10 mm Allen wrench and had to go back to get an 8 mm wrench and it did not fit.

The best way to start is to buy a repair manual for the vehicle. In this amnual there will be a section on the transmission. There will be a remove and replace sub-section and this will list all the procedures ofr performing the remove and replacement of your transmission. The manual costs range from 15 to 25 dollars. Without this amnual you will not know very important information needed for the correct procedures for doing the transmission replcement.

There are no major precautions for access during emergency procedures.

If it is a standard transmission S10 maybe they are talking about the "throwout bearing" which is part of the clutch operation that can go bad.

Bearing needs to be pressed old out and new pressed in. Cost about $40 to have it removed from auto shop. But you can install it by chilling (freezer) the replacement bearing overnight and then heat the hub (200 oven don't want to melt the inner bearing seal) and drive the new bearing in with a soft hammer or wood block. Don't forget the bearing seals innerfirst before the bearing and then outer after bearing is in. Best to remove hub and do it on a bench.
