Ok the part came in yesterday and will change it out shortly. Here are some photos.
I ordered the AC delco part number and the outer box has that number and the factory aveo number on it. Then open that box and the inside box is the factory aveo box, crazy. I know they are same manufacture but box in a box, puzzled.
The bearing i bought seperate in the pictures is the exact bearing already in the hub, all numbers match. What's crazy is the bearing slips right into the hub with no force, I was just seeing how it fit above the bearing already in there. So my feeling is the bearing just slips into the hub and the snap ring holds it in there with some pressure. The bearing outer race seats in the back by the ABS ring and the snap ring only touches the outer race. Then when you put the axel nut on that only applies pressure to the inner race on the bearing. So I'm wondering if the bearing would need to be pressed at all if just replacing the bearing. I will figure that all out when I do the swap. Then I might have my old one as a spare and install the new bearing.
I had trouble finding the battery as well just to help out people in the future Walmart carries value power 26r in stock for $48.88 and it is an exact size match for the OEM One. It also has about 20% more amps. It appears the battery tray in the car is slightly bigger than the stock battery size. so if you measure it out you might be able to upgrade your battery size. Here is the link to the Walmart battery. https://www.walmart.com/ip/VP-26R-Battery/47308800?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&wl13=3523&adid=22222222228039166080&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=80428802209&wl4=aud-273067695102:pla-177661621489&wl5=9031180&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=local&wl12=47308800&wl13=3523&veh=sem
Thanks, actually there is no cotter pin, just the dimple on the nut flange after torqued. I have a good torque wrench so that's not an issue.
I have done plenty before but never this issue where you can't buy the whole assembly, crazy.
Looks like you found the correct part...and..at a good price. I go by OEM numbers and a visual..both match..so, looks like you're good to go. The Aveo hub pix you posted will also fit (# and visual correct)..Nice work securing the right part and the rear hub is not a very big job. Just remember to to clean off any rust on mating surfaces etc and don't be shy with the heavy lube. Torque for rear bolt must be 140lbs if unsure about your wrench accuracy, err on the plus side and don't forget the spindle and nut grease and cotter pin to lock big spindle nut after torque. Lots of respect for someone willing to do the research and work. Pix of progress sequence to follow??
