Question about 1998 Mercury Mystique
The sound started at first like an airplane flying over you, like an echoing hum, but now sounds like a brake pad grinding over a rear drum even when the brake is not applied. Someone told me it could be the wheel hub blown. I don't feel the steering wheel vibrating unless I hit the brake hard. There's no shimming at all while driving.
P.S. Where can I get a free online manual for this car?
Sounds like a wheel bearing gone bad

Your loseing a bearing in your front end. Don't have it replaced by your dealer or joe machanic. The bearing and hub tolerance is less then nothing and you CAN'T just press this baby in. You have to cool your bearing in the deep freeze, and heat the heck out of the hub. You won't get any time to mess around and you still need a press.bearing cost 50.00 The other FIX is to find a hub in a salvage yard, preferably low miles, cost 20.00
