Cool Wheel Hub Assembly

I need to change the wheel hub assembly, front wheel on my 2000 Buick Park Avenue. Will I need any special tools. Can anyone provide step by step instructions.

You will need to take off the axle nut with a 36mm socket and breaker bar. Hold the hub from rotating by some one holding the brakes or a large screw driver between the roter venbt fins and calper bracket. Once the axle nut is off remove the caliper and rotor. Tie the caliper up to the spring so you wont damage the brake hose. Next unplug the ABS wheel speed sensor. Next remove the 3 hub bolts from behind the hub around the CV joint. The hub can now be removed by tapping on it or put the wheel on with a few nuts and try to wiggle the wheel like you were checking for play in the front end. This should pop the hub out. Before reassembling make sure the roter shield goes back on the right way. Torque the hub bolts to 70 tlbs the caliper bolts to 38 lbs the axle nut to 107 ftlbs and lug nuts to 100 ftlbs
