It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

Roaring noise in front end of Monte Carlo 2001 the faster I go the faster it goes. Does not happen when I idle or rev the motor only when I'm driving?


A common problem with this generation of MC's is the ISS, or intermediate steering shaft. The shaft turns with the wheels and does exactly what you describe. If it isn't too far gone, a repair shop can do a lube job on it and some more parts on your front end to fix the symptom. If it is too far gone, you will need a new ISS.

There are other front end problems (power steering, wheel hubs, axles, brake rotors, etc.) that will cause similar noises and symptoms. If you aren't highly skilled and mechanically inclined, it is much better to just take the car into a repair shop for a diagnosis and/or estimate than to throw parts and labor at the general area. If somebody makes a bad judgement or two, the cost of replacing parts that do not eliminate the root cause will quickly add up to more than the cost of a proper repair. Not to mention the time involved. 25362372-awph1b3yhxdrnyqdcrsrelkr-5-0.jpg

I have a humming noise while driving my 2003 monte carlo ss


Most likely a wheel bearing, Take it for a drive, When you hear the noise move the steering wheel slightly right then left and listen for a pitch change in the whine, What ever way the pitch changes, Say you turn left and it changes? Its the left bearing and same for the right.

2000 monte carlo / noise from rear wheels


That's what it sounds like to me also. I would put the rear up on jack stands and spin the wheels to male shure wich side it is. Don't forget to block the front wheels for safety as you will not be able to set your e- brake for this test.
