Depending on year... I believe some of those are going to be a sealed hub unit... you cannot change just the bearing. What year is yours?How to change a front wheel bearing on a cavalier?i looked up an old style and a new sytle, they are both bolt in bearings (hub and bearing are one unit). you need to remove the claiper, rotor and axle nut. then push the axle shaft thru the hub. take out the 3 (or 4) bolts that hold on the hub. be careful of the abs wire and sensor (if you have abs)How to change a front wheel bearing on a cavalier?At many auto parts stores you can buy a Haynes or Chilton's do-it-yourself manual for your model car, with step-by-step instructions, and basic explanations at the beginning of each chapter. If it is not in stock, you can order it online by searching on %26quot;auto repair manuals%26quot; on Yahoo search. In the front is a section on %26quot;Troubleshooting%26quot; that guides you step-by-step to find causes of most engine malfunctions based on the car's symptoms. Whether you do the work yourself or not, it helps you make informed decisions and not be taken advantage of, and to not feel so %26quot;in the dark.%26quot;

db667089 says: you can check http://www.alldatadiy.com. For about the same price as a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual, you can have online access (for a whole year) to model specific info for your particular vehicle. This is the same info that repair shops use. They have great wiring schematics/diagrams.

Also, for about $15 for a one-month subscription, you can get the factory manual, downloadable (careful! Mine was about 500 pages!) or viewable, at http://eAutoRepair.com.

Also, many people recommend autozone.com's free online manuals.
