    2004 Grand Prix
    So when I was trying to replace the wheel bearing on of the bolts holding the actual bearing itself has been stripped. I'm guessing previous owner couldn't remove it and damages the screw in the process. Is there a way I can fix this? Also...where could I find the torque requirements for the bolts when replacing the bearing. (Note) It's one of the bolts behind the wheel bearing....any help or tips is greatly appreciated.

    Is the head of one of those rounded off? If so, and as long as you can get a clean straight shot on it just take a 6-point socket that is a bit smaller than whats left of the bolt head and bang it on there with a hammer. Then just use a breaker bar and it should pop loose. Depending on which one it is you may have to remove other things to get access to it.

    The hub mounting bolts are GM Part No. 11570580 and come with red loc-tite already on them. The new hub bolts get torqued to 96 lb ft. If you reuse yours then use some locktite on them and torque to spec.

    The two bolts on the brake caliper bracket get torqued to 133 lb ft.

    The 36mm wheel driveshaft nut gets torqued to 118 lb/ft.
