noise from front while driving?


Recommended Posts

Lately I think that my wheel bearings are bad in the front as I have a whine that occurs while driving. I take it out of gear and still noise, It occurs without breaking. I did run those 25mm spacers for a 100 miles with the re's to make them fit, and afterward the noise started. If that is the problem how difficult would it be to replace them? Can I do it without throwing off the alignment i.e. without too much dissasembly? Thanks Sean

Well, the suggested way is to remove the wheel carrier and press the bearing out using a hydraulic press. Some (automotive) machine shops will let you bring in the part and they will press it out for you fairly inexpensively. Installation also requires that you heat the new bearing to 100 degrees C (or about 210 F in your oven). If you are careful and mark all of the positions before undoing the bolts you might get away without an alignment. Might be good to have it checked afterwards anyway.

Loren,

I think you meant heating the wheel carrier. Usually you freeze the bearing.

If you can get the bearing out/in without removing the wheel carrier then no alignment should be necessary. Most shops charge 3-4 hours for a bearing R&R.

Correct. At least he knew what I meant... I'll fix the typo.
