Front Wheel Bearing....

I have a rattling noise in the front pass. Side. It makes a small popin noise in slow reverse. I believe it is the wheel bearing/hub assembly. Can some one help me figure this out? I think I can do it my self but not sure. Had anyone replaced this if it is in fact the bearing hub assembly. Thanks guys hope you can help.

theyre not hard to replace. Ive had mine out 3 times ( I had cv axle issues.) It's a 15mm to unbolt the cailper bracket, and the cv axle nut is 32mm or 1-1/4" both worked on mine. and the 3 nuts that hold the wheel bearing/hub are also 15mm. and the small nuts that hold the dust shield on are 8mm same as the abs sensor (if you have abs)

but I just noticed that youre a '00, not sure if its going to be exactly the same because if Im not mistaken, you have different hubs that mine

Edit: if you have a 15mm ratchet wrench, it will make it 10 times easier

If he has pvh hubs there is no 32mm nut. Instead he has one PITA snap ring. I can never get it out without destroying it. Buy a new one for each bearing you want to swap out. Its a dealer only part and is about ten bucks.

I don't think i have pvh. I don't see any wires or hoses that attach to the hub. Im not sure if I have 2 wl abs or 4? I have front disc and rear drums. Thanks guys for the help. I have a couple days next week so I plan on getting under it and playing around. Good thing is parts store is a block away so I can ride the Bicycle like high school days...

ok i take that back. I have pvh. There is a small hose that goes to the hub and it's not the brake line. Should i buy the whole unit with the line connected to the new part? It's like 20 more
