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.

What does a damaged wheel baring sound like

A bad wheel bearing noise will normally increase or roar loader with car speed but depends on how bad it is. If you turn momentary to the left or right while driving down the road say above 30 mph, the noise will change pitch either gettin loader or quieter. Locating the correct bearing to change can be tricky because sometimes it may sound like the left bearing but it can be the right. The best thing to do is to jack the car up on jackstands and get the wheels spinning and while spinning prob the hub area on the back side of the wheel with a mechanics stethoscope to pick up the sound. Placing the plastic end of a long screw driver against the ear while probing the inner hub with the other end works equally well for locating bearing noise. Compare the noise heard while spinning and the noisy one is the bad bearing. Do not spin the wheels fast while on jack stands or it could cause damage to the halfshafts (cv joints). Spinning the back wheels with be hard to do since there is no poweer to them. If they are bad enough, they will still make noise while someone is spinning them by hand. Most shops have a device for spinning the wheels.

2.0 Liter, 2003 Rav4. Car had a ticking noise, Toyota replaced serptine belt and still makes ticking noise. Toyota says its lower engine rod bearings. I used stethascope and noise seems to be coming from...

big end bearings( lower engine rod bearings to confuse) knock at idle and get louder with rpm
if the noise changes with rpm and you are hearing it near the ac compressor then it could be the ac pulley bearing
test if it is the compressor by listening and then turning the ac off the pulley will still spin but the compressor stops
if the noise remains , replace the pulley bearings

Noise at rear wheel. Sounded like warn disc brakes. I replaced the disc brakes. Less noise but still not acceptable. Could it be a wheel bearing and if so how do I tell?

lift the rear axle off the ground and spin the wheels around as fast as you can. if the bearings are bad you will hear it if the sound changes as it spins. If it a scratching noise that will be from the disc brake pads

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.

Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting
