  4. Remove the wheel speed sensor electrical connector from the bracket.
  5. Remove the brake caliper bracket with the brake caliper.
  6. Remove the brake rotor.
  7. Separate the wheel drive shaft from the wheel bearing/ hub assembly.

    Important: Wrap the wheel drive shaft boot with a clean shop towel this will help protect the cv joint boot.

  8. Support wheel drive shaft.
    Object Number: 357695  Size: SH

  9. Remove and DISCARD the wheel bearing/hub bolts. DO NOT reuse the wheel drive shaft nut, replace with NEW.
  10. Remove the wheel bearing/hub.
    Object Number: 357695  Size: SH

  11. Install the wheel bearing/hub.

    Caution: These fasteners MUST be replaced with new fasteners anytime they become loose or are removed. Failure to replace these fasteners after they become loose or are removed may cause loss of vehicle control and personal injury.

    Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

  12. Install NEW wheel bearing/hub bolts.

    Tighten
    Tighten the NEW wheel bearing/hub bolts to 130 N·m (96 lb ft).

  13. Install the wheel drive shaft.
  14. Install the brake rotor.
  15. Install the brake caliper bracket with the brake caliper.
    Object Number: 477813  Size: SH

    Important: Ensure that the connector clip engages the bracket properly.

  16. Install the wheel speed sensor electrical connector to the bracket.
    Object Number: 188809  Size: SH

  17. Connect the wheel speed sensor electrical connector (2).
  18. Install the tire and wheel.
  19. Remove the support and lower the vehicle.

Reply to carhelp4uhere's Post: doi need any special tools to pull the hub after i undo the three bolts
Expert:  Carhelp4u replied 6 years ago.

Not if the hub comes off with ease. If the hub has corroded you may need a torch and an air chisel to loosen it up. That would be a worse case scenario. I have seen them come right off, but there are a few tomes where the hub can be a real trouble to get out. Good luck!
