Customer Question
I have a chevy...

I have a chevy 2500 hd 4wd, I want to check the front right wheel bearing and adjust. I started hearing a thumping sound and noticed there is more movement sideways and vertically then I believe should be.

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

The noise just started this morning, I had to make a tight slow turn on gravel, shortly after that I noticed it.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 2500?

2003

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I an looking into it my self, I have worked on my old 1980 chevy many times in the past. I am not sure how to remove the dust seal in the center of the axial. It is ~4 inches in dia and seems pretty healthy so I do not want to destroy it getting it off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

At the present time that is my question.

HI,

Ok, this does not have adjustment for the bearing. It is a sealed hub bearing assembly. If there is play in the hub, then you replace the hub bearing assembly. See attached

As to removing the axle shaft nut retaining cover(dust cover), I use a flathead screwdriver to tap between the cover and the hub and pry off.
