Could anybody mwho is mechanically inclined with a didgital camera do an illustrated whrite up on how to replace the Hubs, and/or replace the wiring harness. this problem is obviously an epidemic and i cant ever find some good clear details. i dont have the $500 to spend on fixing my car at the dealership but i have the $200 to buy it and do it myself. Anyone who does this will be doing a great public servie, and if i have no problems after following your instructions ill give u $10. ould i also request that this topic be a sticky....thank you.
Problems with my car goes as follows:
Whenever im turning i hear a "HMMMMMMMM" sound constantly
Sometimes when i hear the HMMMM" the "Service traction" warning comes on.
Last but not least, sometimes when i brake i feel lke its locking and unlocking very rapidly, almost like a crunch but the rotors are fine.
i have replaced my front and rear hubs on my 01 impala and it fixed that annoying problem for me! if you still need help i would be happy to walk you through it. i dont have any pictures just the experience of doing it myself.
What year is your car? as long as it is 2005 or older i can help you, ive never looked at the 06 or newer. But if i can help i would be happy too!

I realize that this is an old thread... but the information seemed to be just what the Doctor ordered..
...BUT... a 36MM socket is too big for my base (non ABS... maybe that is the difference?) 2004's front hub nut. Looks like a 33mm... I am taking back the 36mm tomorrow!
I don't want it to see like I am crapping on the write up though... it is a VERY detailed write up and and think it is great. Just know that there WILL be and ARE some differences between the GP and Impala wheel bearing replacement procedure.
