First make a sketch of how the belt is routed over and under the pulleys.. As you face the engine from the passenger side of the vehicle, look toward the firewall side of the… engine for a pulley mounted on an "arm". This is the tensioner for the belt. On this arm is a 3/4" nut welded to it. Turn it clockwise toward the front of the car and the arm & pulley should swing enough for the belt to be pulled off.. Replacing the belt is tricky because the new belt will be stiff and have bends set into a weird shape. It is best done with two people. One should be under the car and one on top. I did it with my wife. I was underneath.. Start at the front of the car and work toward the rear leaving the tensioner for last. I made the final loop over the tensioner from underneath while my wife relieved the tensioner. You could do it from on top if they are skilled enough to un-tension the arm and position the belt. Both will have to hold the belt from slipping off as the belt as it is rerouted.. Make some small golf club shaped or hooked tools to push / pull the belt over and under pulleys, it will help.. If you are doing this job yourself, it is a little easier to save the alternator for last. . Working from the front of the car you can pull on the tensioner (I used a 3/4" socket on a breaker bar) forward with one hand, while slipping the belt over the alternator pulley at the same time. Tricky, but it works!

4wd Chevy truck - front wheel bearings . The front wheel bearings the new style (1999 to 2008) Chevy 4wd trucks come as an assembly only - the bearings themselves cannot be… replaced - assembly includes the complete hub, stud bolts, ABS sensor/pickup... Basically fool proof, but expensive - $425 as of 9/1/2007.... Good news is, it is easy and quick to install - remove the wheel, unplug ABS wiring, remove the four bolts holding the hub/bearing assembly on - the assembly has splines and simply slides off.(may need a little coaxing to get it broke loose). Assemble in reverse - complete job only takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on experience level, and tools available... Good Luck...

Front wheel drive vehicles are a little more involved than changing them on a rear wheel vehicle. You basically have to take off the whole steering knuckle. You also need to …press out the bearing from the hub and remove the race from the spindle with an air tool cutting wheel. The hub is held on by several bolts on the back near where the axle goes into the hub.

yes.. To my knowledge the rear wheel bearings are lubricated with the differential gear lube as you drive.
The wheel bearings in the vans are "integrated" as part of the hub assembly. This is because of the wheel speed sensor, which are part of the Anti-lock Breaking System (ABS). …In order to replace the bearings, you have to replace the entire hub assembly. These are not cheap, as a result of the included sensors. Sorry about that. Good Luck, Greg A.
