    How hard is a bearing / hub assembly to change?

    Hi!! We have a 94 Seville SLS that need the front bearing and hub assembly changed out. There is a rotational noise coming from the front driver side wheel. We took it to the dealership and they want 750.00 to fix it. Autozone sells the part for 169.00.

    Is this something the above average mechanic can do? We fix all of our Jeeps ourselves, just wondering how complex this is.

    Thanks for your help.

    its easy to do. take the brake caliper off, then the rotor and its a castle nut under the dust cover on the center of the hub. (at least it is on older GMs... never checked on this one). it takes about 20 min to do each side and while you are at it, if your brakes are getting low, you might as well do them.

    It's a piece of cake as long as the bearing releases from the hub. If not, you'll need a hub bearing puller.
