Replacing wheel hub/bearing on '04 CV

I'm planning to replace the wheel hub/bearings on my '04 CV sometime this weekend. Just wondering if I can use the 4 bolts that are holding the current one in place, or if I would have to get new ones. I know some cars use special bolts that you are only supposed to torque once, so when they are removed, they aren't supposed to be used again. Anybody know if these 4 bolts are like this, or am I good to go ahead and reuse them? Thanks in advance.

Re: Replacing wheel hub/bearing on '04 CV

Which bearings are you replacing? I am guessing you mean the rear which you have to pull the differential cover off & slide the axle out to do the work . This means new rear differential gear oil, gaskets & sealer & rags . Might as well check front bearings & pull the rotors off & inspect & repack them also . Rear bearings are more complicated since you have to pull each axle side out . There is a bolt that holds it together . It has been a few years so I am sure others may chime in with additional info

Re: Replacing wheel hub/bearing on '04 CV

actually I'm replacing the front ones. They have a grinding/humming sound, and I need to change out the front rotors anyway so I figured I'd just replace those as well.

Here's a pic of the part I'm referring to, the 4 bolts at the top.

Thanks Bert, but I think that's for a pre '03 style hub. Does Autozone have one for an '04? I tried checking but it was asking me to log in.

I have a Haynes manual coming in the mail and should be here by tomorrow so I should be able to find out for sure then, but I just wanted to confirm this issue as quick as possible in case a local store didn't have the correct part and I end up having to order it.

That site has the repair manual free for use. That link covers replacement from 1999 to 2005.

Pretty sure you reuse the same bolts. Use blue permatex on the threads to keep bolts tight.
