Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute
When turning the wheel of my 2002 Mazda tribute there is a vary loud and annoying squealing noise( almost sounds like a cow mooing) when you turn the wheel in either direction any ideas on what could be causing it
Well after speaking to my dad about it, (He knows a lot more than me) and he suggested that it might be the power steering belt. It could be either loose, or worn down. Either that, or it could be the power steering unit wearing down. You probably want to take it to a mechanic and get it fixed. (This is just going of the opinion of some older cars, but we're not positive.) Hope it helped anyways.

sounds like a wheel bearing maybe faulty from your text it sounds like it could be the osf you could try jacking vehicle up with engine off handbrake applied and in neutral spin the wheel and see if it makes noise or wiggle it to see if it has any play possibly take off greade cap and see if any grease in bearing /

You have a front wheel bearing that is making noise. Usually the one that is the problem is louder when turning in the opposite direction. If you turn right and noise gets loud then its your left bearing and if you turn left and the noise gets loud then its your right bearing. Understand that thats just a rule of thumb and that either bearing can make noise in either direction. Good luck!

SOURCE: Hi, The front end of
Check boots on CV joints for tears. Torn boots result in CV wearing out. The boots are at each end of the axles going from your transmission to the front wheels. The normal repair is to replace axles. Both can be more carefully inspected on a lift before deciding if only one or both axles should be replaced. Any questions, please reply. I'm going to bed now, but will answer any replies tomorrow.
