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




What do you think about this video?

Charles A: You might want to tell people to tighten the wheel bearing hub to specs. use a torque wrench.

Wyatt Broadwater: This is a 2wd right? Same process for a 4x4?

roger brandt: Sure looks a lot easier than my 2006 duramax.

jclif1981: Would you consider doing a step by step video on how to change a heater core? I know its a big job, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thank you.

jclif1981: Thanks for videos, I have a 99 blazer and very helpful. 

Steven wade: I find this gentleman to be a fine thank you sir for your service

Lee InaField: how long did that bearing and those brake pads last?

ovadose316: I'm subscribed. Thank you

Angel Maya: thanks Jeremy., I have1999 blazer wit 4x4 don't lock and the 4x4 light on

Randy Dinsmore: Perfect. Needed to know if the bearing assembly was replaced from an assembled piece vs installing the actual bearing. I got the info i needed. Thanks..very helpful.

Jovelie Nelson: Awesome Video!! Will this same procedure work on my 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada?

ted price jr: Thank you, your instructions were great and our change out went well. Was quite different from other front wheel bearings that I have changed out.

craig barnes: nice job thx man 

BoomBoy13: and also how different would it be on 4wd?

BoomBoy13: is there any reason this wouldnt work for at 97?

Tyler Brand: I loved the video very simple and easy to follow I had to replace mine on driver side please do a video on rocker arm cover gaskets there are none! all gasket videos haha on chevy blazer 2000 to 2003

Carl Peterson: I enjoyed it. You kept it simple and that is what I need. Thanks

Michael Gaebel: any chance you could do front and rear pads and rotor replacement for 98 Chevy blazer LS? Would be absolutely wonderful!

Demon2Zero: Good stuff. I had the prob with the bolts on the caliper assembly being locked up - going to have to hit them with breakfree or something like that. I got as far as that, & ran out of daylight. Looks like I'll be on it this weekend....

Jaanna Croom: Good job

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!

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

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. 

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.

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!

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

Erik Pacheco: good crap

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. 

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

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

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

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 ?

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.

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?

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

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.!

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???

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
