SOURCE: I have a ford f 150 4x4, that the Passager front

If this is a 2005 F-150 4x4. Usually if there is movement up and down, itmight possibly be the lower ball joints and not the wheel bearing, to verify that it is indeed bearing play you can grab a hold of your tire (with tire of the ground) and try and move it side to side instead of up and down. If you can still feel the movement then it is the wheel bearing. To get to the wheelbearing you will first have to remove the tiny center dust cap in the middle of the wheel. There should be a 13mm bolt you will need to remove under that cap. Next you will have to remove the brake caliper and caliper bridge, then remove the brake rotor. On the backside of the knuckle assembly you will see 4 bolts that hold the hub assembly (your wheel bearing) on. There also may be a plastic ring around the back of the hub assembly too that has vacuum lines running to it for the vacuum hub,this will be held on by 4 or so 8mm bolts, once all these bolts and the4 bolts holding the actuall hub assembly on are removed, you should be able to remove the hub (bearing) assembly from the front of the knuckle assy. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 98 altima loose wheel bearing

This can be due to bad ball joints or bad tie rods inner or outer. If the wheel being has play in it then it may not be tightened enough the center nut on the axle may be loose. If not then double check and make sure something else is not bad in front end. To check ball joint support car up on jack stands grab tire in the top and the bottom and check for play, to check inner and out tie rods grab wheel when elevated from the front and rear of the tire and check for play. Good luck and contact if you need more help. thanks for using FIX YA

its possible it could be a wheel hub bearing,but it could be a faulty brake caliper or a brake hose,if it pulls when the brake is applied then you have a brake issue

I got a 1989 big bear it pulls to the right i put new tie rid ends and upper and lower balk joints in pulled cv axel it seems to be ok steering bearings seem fine also anyine have any ideas

Try aiming the handle bar straight and pull some kite string across the rear wheel , lightly touching the sidewalls of the tire. With the length of the string pulled across the front tire, adjust the outer tie rod so as to make front tire lightly touch the string. That should square the front tire to the back tire. Once the front and rear are squared, adjust tie rod in 1 turn for a slight negative toe. Do both sides while making sure to keep the handle bar straight during string and adjustment. That should help.

2005 trailblazer knocking sound front drivers side wheel when accelerating only

First check wheel bearing. Jack front end up lifting tires off ground and see if the wheel moves by pulling on the sidewall part of wheel from top and pushing bottom towards the car does this back and forth if there is play, wheel bearing could need replaced. Take tire off and check for loose brakes, loose calipers, loose dust shields , etc. everything except rotor should be tight.

How would u know if ur front wheel bearing is going out?

lift and support the front of the truck to get the wheels off of the ground. Grab the top and bottom of the suspected tire, and try to tilt the tire. (Pull the bottom, push the top, and vice versa) If there is any movement, the bearings are most likely bad. Also spin the tire and listen for any noise. Harshness, grinding, or growling noises are faulty bearings. Of course, removing the tire, brake caliper bracket, caliper, pads, and the rotor will give you a good look at the bearing assembly to inspect for metal shavings, and evidence of grease leakage. Your truck's wheel bearings are, I believe; sold as a complete assembly, and are fairly expensive. A detailed inspection is a good idea to make sure you are getting the right part, and they can be replaced as required, unlike brake parts that should be replaced in axle sets (both sides).

What is the foot pounds for the front wheel bearings on a 1995 chrysler cirrus

Hello, If you Chrysler has replaceable wheel bearings and seal. This is the way it goes---pack the wheel bearing with new grease-install the bearing in the wheel nub--install new back wheel seal--coat the axle shaft with grease lightly, thing coat-----install wheel hub on to axle careful here don't damage the rear hub seal------------insert front race washer---install axle shaft nut--tighten nut down wheel nut until it is firm with water pump pliers----spin the hub/with tire mounted.
(the wheel and hub will turn but not freely)----take the pliers and back off the axle nut 1/4 turn----now spin the wheel and axle hub, it should spin freely---now if doesn't spin freely---back off the axle nut about 1/16 or 1/32 (or just a little bit)-----now, spin the wheel and hub and if turn freely------------Now grab the top of the wheel/tire and move it back and forth.-----if there is some movement ---try tighten the axle nut just a little little bit, unit the one can barely feel some little movement in the wheel/tire and hub.-----------Now, spin the wheel/tire and hub and it should also turn freely.

If it does----install new and correct size of cotter pin and bent the ends around the axle nut.----

coat the inside of the hub cup with grease. Now, use an rubber or plastic hammer to install the cup on the wheel/tire hub. You are finished with one wheel bearing maintenance. Now do the other side.

I really don't know if you Chrysler Cirrus has replaceable wheel bearing. All the auto/trucks have replaceable hubs, that means that the replacement is total hub with axle shaft, sealed bearings, and seals. This is bolt to each wheel steering hub. This work to remove these one unit hubs.

Four bolts hold the axle hub to the steering hub. Hear is the problem!! it has rusted to the steering hub. Also, these hubs cost more than replacing bearings, races, seals to cool turn of $180 to $250+ I wish you luck in your replacement of wheel bearing on your Chrysler. GB..stewbison

There's a loud humming sound coming from inside the back of the mountaineer. Could this be my wheel bearings or what?

It's very possible they are pretty common. Here's something you can try. With the front wheels chalked so the vehicle cannot roll forwards or backward place the transmission in neutral. Jack the rear wheels off the ground. Grab the tires by the six and twelve o'clock position and push and pull. If you feel movement your on the right track with bad wheel bearings. Another thing you can do is spin the wheel s by hand. If you can hear the bearing humming it is bad. Everyone and a while you will get one that is almost impossible to tell. In this case I will separate the knuckle from the rear suspension and spin the hubs/bearings by hand. You know right away I'f it is bad. these bearings are pressed into the knuckle. You will need to remove the knuckle and either lay a machine shop or auto shop to press the old bearing out and the new bearing in. You will not be able to do it without a press or a tool called a hub shark.

I am planning to drive from Dallas to Madison and will be towing the 2000 Catera. Do I just put the car in neutral? Are there any issues with towing this car, i.e. overheating the transmission? Thanks,...

Hi, you should rent a tow dolly from U-Haul. Pulling with a tow bar in neutral that far will most likely mess up the transmmission. If it front wheel drive a dolly will do, no need for a full trailer. U-Haul will ask for car specs and give you the correct device. I've used them, costs about $100 per 350 miles, or the like.......Mike

If it is constantly shaking? Sounds like a knot on your tire. Because if it was tie rod end or sway bar then it would stop at certain times. Like slow speeds, or when you turn a little then straighten it back out.
Jack it up and pull on the wheels and if something is loose or worn out it will show up. Feel around the tire for a knot. Lower the jack to where the tire barely clears the ground and spin it. It will hit the ground if there is a knot you cant feel.

On my 2004 dodge 1500 2wd ,only one wheel in the differential actually moves. There is no limited slip or posi trac. Is this normal or a fault in the design? It eats up only drive wheel tire at twice the...

when you have a rear end without posi track or limited slip, they call this an open differential only one wheel has power at a time. The wheel that spin's the easiest is the one that spins it is cheaper for the manufactor to make but it also has the advantage of better gas mileage sense it is only sending power to one wheel at a time vs two. Tthe disadvantage is when you are stuck in the mud or snow. Remember the wheel that is easier to spin is the one that the engine is sending power to. So you can have one wheel in the mud and one wheel on dry concrete and you are stuck. Now if you are eatting up the same back tire all the time it makes me think that for some reason that the other wheel has something binding it making it harder to turn. It could be a stuck brake, a wheel bearing or in the differential itself. I would start by jacking up the back of the truck so that both tires are off the ground. Now spin each wheel, did you hear any grinding, is one wheel harder to turn than the other? If not quit doing all those big burnouts lol and everything is probably normal. If not and one wheel is harder to turn take the wheel off and the brake drum and see how hard it is to turn, how do the brakes look have they been dragging? If its not the brakes then it might be a wheel bearing and you have to take the rear cover off the diff and pull the pin remove the c clip and slide the axle out and check the bearing. Pull the axle out just enough to clear the diff and spin it does it spin freely or does it bind. If it still hard to turn then replace the wheel bearing. go to the parts store and borrow a sllid hammer it has two jaws that go in and behind the bearing and then slid the hammer until you drive out the bearing. hope this helps
