Well, the my drivers side bearing has finally worn out. It's making the typical low growl as you drive down the road. At least this side held on until a more reasonable 116k miles.
I'm worried about trying to get a new bearing installed...
I did a practice removal on an old spindle I have from when the first bearing went bad on the pass. side.
I didn't go all that great.
1st the stupid tool I bought from ebay doesn't seem to have the right attachments for the Aveo.. Its the right Kent Moor j37105. the #3 piece on mine is too big to remove the hub as shown in the repair guides, but luckily I was able to utilize a 7/8 socket. That did the trick.
But part of the bearing seized itself to the hub. I chiseled away at it for an hour bit I couldn't get it to budge. I don't want to get the one thats on the car now, all apart to find the same thing...that would render the car in-op.
