On GM model cars I know you use a Torx socket. You can purchase them at Checker Auto Parts.

On my 2004 c1500 Chevy 2wd the torx socket size is 55. But they are frozen. i could not even get them loose with an air impact. I guess I will try heating it with a torch and hope I don't fry the brake caliper seal.

They are held in place on GM and Oldsmobile with a Torx T-55 bolt. The bolt is held in place with the red colored Loctite, so it will take a good deal of force to remove it, or gentle tapping combined with heat. (A 4' breaker bar worked on my 92 olds.)

How do you replace a wheel bearing on a Montana?

first remove the wheel,then remove the brake caliper,then the caliper mounting bracket.then you need to remove the rotor which should just slide off.then you need to remove the axle spindle nut which is in the center of the rotor,then you need to separate the strut from the back of the spindle by removing the two bolts holding it.once you separate the spindle from the strut then there are three bolts that hold the hub in place that you need to take out from the back side of the hub.you will have to slide the axle in a little bit in order to reach these bolts.once you get these bolts out you will have to gently tap on the hub from the back to get it to come free of the spindle housing. then do the reverse to put it back together.
