I needed to replace the Wheel Bearing Hub Assembly for my 2006 Pontiac G6. I didn't want to pay a repair shop to do it, so I did it myself for 1/3 the price.

• The Hub Grappler Kit is the complete solution for
servicing wheel hubs and bearings on the vehicle
without removing the steering components or knuckle.
This eliminates unnecessary alignments or the use of a
shop press, cutting service time dramatically.
• The new Hub Grappler Puller is specifically designed
to apply maximum force with minimal effort from an
impact gun to also minimize service time.
• The new jaws are designed and sized to properly fit hub
applications and can be quickly located on the puller
bar without the use of fasteners.
• The new 3/4" custom drive screw coupled with the
special equalizer washer provides smooth operation
while the proprietary heat treating extends its life
5-10 times longer than similar designs.
• 6 new adapters increases application coverage up to
2009 model year. Also includes tie rod/ball joint tool
and 2 Ford axle installers.

comprehensive hub and bearing service guide on the
market. Developed to be the first tool used in the kit,
it provides quick reference to the other tools in the kit

How to Replace a Front Hub/Wheel Bearing: 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
Here I show you how to replace the front non serviceable wheel bearing on any similar front wheel drive application. The vehicle I'm working on is a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. This style wheel bearing is very common on many GM front wheel drive applications and usually need replacement at 100k miles. Common problems include a short developing in the wheel speed sensor, and the grease drying up, causing play and eventually squealing.

Replacing an Accord Wheel Bearing
Ok, here it is finally. A few of you have requested this procedure so here it is. As I said in the video I normally use a different method of removing the hub from the bearing assembly by using a slide hammer. I also normally use a press to reinstall the hub into the new bearing instead of hitting it with a hammer. Life is not perfect and we sometimes have to improvise as I did here. I know a few of you will ask about the size fasteners that I used to hammer the bearing out, I used hardened (8.8) 10x1.25 bolts to do the job. I also promised links to the other videos that relate to this one so here they are.

How to Change a Wheel Bearing (short and fast version)
This video shows how to change a pressed bearing in a Ford, specifically a 95 Ford Windstar, but this method will be similar for all pressed bearing vehicles. The main steps are to take off the spindle nut, tire, brake caliper, and rotor. Then remove the bolts from the lower control arm ball joint, tie rod, and strut. Remove the steering knuckle, then press out the bearing and hub/spindle. Then press in your new bearing and hub/spindle. This job is a little more complex but can still be easily done by any amateur mechanic. You will save $400-800 depending on your vehicle. Pleas comment, like and subscribe if you liked this video!
