Question about Cars & Trucks
Noise in spin cycle
Bearing on what? and spin cycle sounds like maybe its a washing machine or dryer? but if it is a car, and youre talking about the wheel bearing, then youll have to jack up the wheel thats having the issue, remove the tire, brake caliper, brake rotor, then bearings can be either pressed in, or covered with a cap. (look up details for your specific vehical ahead of time, if its pressed in, dont bother, take it somewhere) if it is only covered by a cap, then you can usually get the cap off with a hammer and a flathead screwdriver, then the bearings will be behind it. make sure to note how they come out because they can be a pain to figure out! if you are going to install new ones, make sure to use LOTS AND LOTS of grease that you can pick up for cheap at any auto store, and is usually the size of a planter's peanut can, and should be light-medium brown in color. slap tons inside the area that holds the bearings, and on the bearings themselves. when in doubt, use more. then reverse the process to put them back on and CHECK THE BRAKES BEFORE DRIVING as taking the calipers off may mean you have to bleed any air out of the system before it will be safe to drive.
