    HELP Remove Rear Wheel Bearings 2005 STS V8

    Group -

    Hi all. I hope someone can help me as I have done extensive searching and have yet to find the answer to this question. I have a 2005 Cadillac STS with the V8 Engine. My rear wheel bearings are bad and I am trying to replace them. The problem I am running into is that I cannot get any type of wrench or socket around the big CV housing and onto any of the 3 Bearing holding bolts. I removed the ball joint nut/bolt, but that only helped a little bit. I have seen this question posted a couple of times on this board, but I have been unable to find any definitive answers. Most of the responses pointed to the CTS version, which appears to be much easier to remove than the STS version (figures). It almost appears that I have to remove the entire wheel housing.. and I even tried that except I could not get the Sway Bar link off... Hopefully somebody has done this on an STS before and wouldn't mind providing some guidance to me. If not, does anyone know of anybody who has the Service Manual for this car. The only STS Service Manual I can find is a 2007/2008 Manual on EBay

    Thanks so much

    Some members think highly of Alldata. When I had a bad rear bearing, the dealer replace the hub assembly. The part lists for around $300 and I'll bet Chris at Rippy's would get it to you for less, GM warranty & all.
