Help - tool needed.

Does anyone have access to an axle removal tool?

This is for a 2003 Chevy Tahoe front wheel bearing hub replacement.

GM service manual references the tool as "J45859"

TIA

It should be cheap to buy , about $40 . You should also be able to rent one from Autozone.

Alex (Moparboy) ought to have something that would work. If you search for "J45859 2003 Tahoe" there's some links to an Avalanche forum and they're saying it's not required.

There's usually a way to do the job without the special tools, but those tools can make the job 1000 times easier.

Good Luck

I forgot the number, but one of GM's special "J" tools is literally a screwdriver

I've replaced probably 100 of them and never used a puller. Just use a big hammer to whack it out. Be careful buying cheap aftermarket hubs. We've had a shitload of them come back lately.

Yes THIS!! I think Ryan replaced like 4 on my Monte Carlo in less then 2 months


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Don't need to "pull" axle to change hub bearing, just push it out the back of the hub with a soft faced mallet...if you're talking about getting the hub assembly off the knuckle (make sure bolts are out that hold it to knuckle and axle nut is off), just use a baby sledge if you don't have an air hammer to shock it loose...heed this advice, when you get it back together, make sure you "torque" the axle nut to spec with the wheel on and sitting on the ground...if you don't, you will trash that new bearing in a short time...speaking from over 20 years of experience and it's OEM procedure...happy to answer any other questions...good luck.
