HOW TO REPLACE 1998-2005 CHEVY GM / BLAZER / JIMMY / BRAVADA / FRONT WHEEL BEARING HUB / SHOUT OUT




What do you think about this video?

Bobby B: you did not mention torque settings or the step of torguing center nut to 90 ft lbs not sure why? you left all that out

Marty Dobbins: My 98 Bravada has the SmartTrak that enables the fronts to lock in on slippery roads. Is there more involved with that over regular 2wd? Thanks!

Darryl Baker: Hey I finally did my wheel hub assembly today thanks to u it was easy on my Jimmy I can tell u that the Chevy an gmc are a little different or maybe it because my suv is a 4x4 but same concept your video help a lot thanks man.

Allen G: rockauto.com has the hub for $43.79

Erik Pacheco: good crap

Jaanna Croom: Good job

Bob Miller: Nice job, I will be doing this soon and now I know I can get it done.

sayed jalil: very good buddy, very helpful,god bless you,takecare

Mario Fontalvo: HI. Is the knuckle different from a 4x4? I have a 96 and my wheel hub look the same the one you are installing except it does not have a hole in the middle but the inner teeths for the cv joint. Are they the same? Thank you!

jack hyatte: Got a bad left wheel .That is bad abs senor and rotor drum and spindle was chip out.bearing s.Need to know to replace it?

Andee Yeigh: you got one for a wheel bearing for 19999 LT blazer replacement

Dale N: Nice video! Just want to add a couple things for the novice mechanics. You can pickup a Haynes Manual at your local auto parts stores or online as well I'm sure. You may ask why this is important? It has a lot of the torque specs which believe it or not the caliper mount brackets, calipers, hub nuts where it mounts to spindle along with the wheel lug nuts have torque values. You can also try using Google for the torque values. For those curious a couple ways to check for a bad wheel bearing are the one described in the video by the author and another way is to jack the suspect wheel just off the surface of the ground where you can grab it at top and bottom or on each side and try forcefully rocking it back and forth which if it's going south you'll feel some movement with a light "clunk" due to the end of the movement. Another thing to check as well is the lower ball joint by using a long pry bar and lifting at the bottom of the tire while you have an assistant watch for movement. If you've did it a few times it can be done by 1 person, just make sure you have jack stands under the car along with the jack there as a secondary. Another tip I don't believe was mentioned about the brakes. When doing brakes do them in pairs and have your rotors checked for minimal thickness and either have them turned or replaced depending on if the thickness is to thin, pricing to turn rotors or the price of a new one which is often within $5 so I just get a new rotor and clean the oil off with brake parts cleaner before installing on the hub assembly. Remember is to remove your brake fluid reservoir cap and slowly compress the caliper piston back in using clamps or the proper tool depending on your vehicle type. In the end make sure to put the reservoir cap back on for your brake fluid. I wasn't trying to hijack the video but just wanted to add pointers for the novice shade tree guys as some of these tips can cost you in more than one way besides money and/or your life. 

baker0835: I used your video to replace the wheel bearing on my 98 Blazer. Thank you for uploading this. You were a big help.

Darryl Baker: Very good video I am going to do the same thing with my 2000 gmc Jimmy it a 4x4 so this video u did makes it look easy keep up the good work man

David Study: Great video, did the job today. Glad I did, the grinding sound was bad, and after tearing the old hub down, it was easy to see where it was coming from. Thanks again. 

Lyle Pierce: thank you for your input, I got the other info off the A1auto video

Sanjuanita Garza: Jeremey nice job on the hub replacement I got a question for u I got a 05 chevy trk I also was replacen hub but I striped one of the three bolts need help is there a tool that will remove it

Tonya Mansch: Is there any difference replacing a hub assembly on a 2003 tahoe ?

Kaleb Hensley: Got all 4 breaks and rotors to do in the am along with a new hub! Wish me luck! Thanks for the video really helped!! www.kaleb Hensley.com

SouthSide Roadside: Hey Jeremy Just to let you and everyone know the 2003 chevy blazer is a little bit different the only difference that I noticed was where the abs wire goes in it's actually a bolt on style not a pin but it was a great video and also with you see the empty space there is a axle for the empty place with the 4x4

Bobby Willard: You do good work sir! I had it done by my mechanic......nice to see what happens when your not allowed in the shop area.!

John barfneck: do a video on a 4x4 s-10 1999-2003 for a cv axle removal +install. also where was the oring gasket/dust grit seal on the back of your new hub? your buddy at a1 auto did a video on the hub on a s-10 4x4 and specifically pointed out the oring in the video. and? it is included with just about every other brand of hubs except the Timken hub I just bought . so I was wondering why some have the oring and some don't. its a 1/4"thick x 3 1/4"id x 3 5/8od" oring . I just spent three days tracking down the oring through McMaster carr then to summit racing and back to of all places ebay.

wtbm123: cool

Andy Brooks: I like your videos man. I would still like to see when you get the chance how you bleed air out of hydro systems. I like the Lawnmower videos the best. You know your stuff. I also like the family videos too. Thanks for teaching us how it is done.

ARMY21tango: How about a video about replacing just the bearings and not the entire hub assembly?

safire994: Just had my truck act like it didn't wanna run. Would start but acted like it wasn't getting gas, ran rough and died. Finally when the elect went out we figured out the neg terminal was loose. Fixed everything.

Harry Kaplan: Ty very much gonna save me about $150.00

ascot4000: Something different from small engines and a good video. Running out of daylight made me smile as we have all been there! For brake systems and safety related systems it is always a good idea to mention the importance of setting correct torque values. Clearly we all have carefully calibrated elbows but torque wrenches are handy too!

Bishop Charles Jones: Will this work for a 2005 Chevy Suburban as well ?

jasper58100: cant tell how much it took to find you glad your there you answered my question and the best place to by the product thanks again

videodlrvm2: I got to say big TKS!!! I´m no tool guy, but your video got me to go down and play on the old rust bucket,,,

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: no im jeremy

ivan hernandez: good video just to ask how good are these parts from 1aauto???

Kyle Casto: is it possible for a 4WD hub assembly to fit a 2WD blazer?

itsallwood: 4wd has the hub nut that attaches the axle

safire994: Must be something about blazers and these. Had 3 sets go out on my 02 blazer so far. All within the last 10-15k. First 100k miles had no prob.

Patrick Blythe: Hey thanks helped alot were was it you order them parts at again couldnt see paper to well in video

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: No sorry it doesn't

tehsocks: I've been back yard mechanic-ing since I was kid, and never once thought to take the caliper off the caliper bracket. I always just went to taking the whole assembly off... Mind = blown

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: NO THE BEARINGS WONT BE SUPPORTED

Heather hesse: Thank you that helped for us girls doing crap on our own. great info! Thanks

frank1380: Good stuff here MM1. I found your videos from ETCG (I think he fixed his chainsaw and mentioned you) and I found ETCG from the comments at realfixesrealfast. I think I found briansmobile1 searching for spark plugs. I shall check out 1AAuto.

royalwithcheese: Did you put anti-seize on the bolts? If you didn't its a good tip for all bolts that are under the car. It helps the next time you have to take it off again. I use it on brake pads too. On the back keeps the noise down

brianlarocque1234: Is it the same for 95?

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: WHAT YOU GOT BRA?

tweed187187: I have a 99 gmc jimmy that has a sticking caliper and so when i get the money im going to replace it.i have never done this before and its the rear driver side.is there any videos for this?thanks.

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: nope its quite normal

Kevin Rogers: i wish wheel bearings really came out that easy...... tho latly the 2012 gm's ive see 2 hubs replaced so far both had grease on the outside of the hub assembly from factory, 2 wacks with the hammer and out it went! about time

Wade Walther: I own a 99 jimmy I need alot of help with identifying what's exactly wrong with it plz get back to me

JEREMY FOUNTAIN: thats what im here for! thanks for watching!
