SOURCE: 2002 cadillac escalade driver side back window stuck.

If you cannot operate the window from either switch, I'd first test switch continuity and operation, both front and rear. If they both pass muster , I'd have to say the fault lies behind the door trim, probably the motor, which also be tested once reaching that point..

SOURCE: I have a 05 Cadillac Escalade and the sterring

Have them check the universal joints, front and rear, as well as the two on the front shaft if it is a four wheel drive model, the CV joints on the front axle if 4WD, the drive shaft(s) for straightness, mud in wheel recesses, and the rear end and front differential "chunks."

SOURCE: I have abnormal wear on

Tire wear as you outlined is caused either by incorrect toe in or camber setting. Both are components of wheel alignment. Regardless of what you were told, there is no other way that happens.
As to who gets to pay for it depends on your agreement.

I changed tires cause of a bad wobble, problem solved, a month later it came back at 60-80 mph, gettin worse on my 94 ranger


Here's a long answer. It could be 100 things. But if your wobble is showing up at low speeds, look at the tread on the tires. Does it snake back and forth? If so you have a belt separation in the tire. If it's not a tire, you may have a suspension part that's bad. Or, more than one. Control arms, ball joints, tie rods, (inner and outer), bushings, and wheel bearings, and any one of them could be waiting to send you into the ditch, or worse. Many garages will give you a free check of your major components. Try them. If you can't or won't, jack up your truck so one wheel is in the air, grab the front tire with one hand at 9 o'clock and the other at 3 o'clock. Wiggle the tire. A very little play, is probably ok, but if you have more than 1 inch of movement, you probably have a bad wheel bearing or a ball joint or control arm. Now grab the tire from top and bottom. Try to move the tire up or down. You should have NO play, at all. Any movement is bad, probably a ball joint, but it still could be a bearing. When you're driving, if your steering wheel is wobbling side to side, it's a front wheel problem. If you just feel the wobble in your seat, it's a rear wheel problem. Don't let the problem keep getting worse. If you put used tires on, it's probably a tire. That, you can fix. Anything else I've mentioned, you can't fix without some very expensive tools, and an alignment machine. Good luck.

1993pontiac grand am front wheels wobble while driving


Jack up the front wheels and rotate them by hand. Look for any runout that may be cause by a bent wheel. Also feel the tread as you rotate the tire. It should be smooth and concentric. If there are any bulges in the tread the tire is seperated. Grab the wheel at the top and bottom and push/pull. You should feel no play. If you do you woman have a bad wheel bearing. In order to check ball joints and tie rods you will need to have the tire off the ground and the jack under the subframe or pinch weld. This will not work if the jack is under the control arm. Grab the tire at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions and push pull. If you feel any play you either hav E worn ball joints or worn tie rod ends. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets


You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

When you drive down the road,and you get over 25 mph theres a wired noise sounds like grouwling


This is one or both of your front wheel bearings, jack the front of the truck up and spin the wheels by hand feel or listen for any noise or roughness, also grab two side of the tire tip and bottom and pull in out, if there is play then your bearing is bad, another possibility is a bad tire but wheel bearings are all to common on these trucks please rate

We checked the brakes and they were fine but when she goes to stop we hear agrinding noise and when we drive and hit a bump you can hear the a noise like we are riding with 24 inch tires but it is all...


You are correct in suspecting the front hub bearings, do the following to confirm first, and if needed I can walk you through replacement if you think you are capable of performing the repair yourself.
-Raise the front of the vehicle on a suitable jack so that one of your front tires is completely off the ground.
-Grasp the top and the bottom of the tire and try to wobble the tire and wheel assembly top to bottom, (on a vertical axis). If there is any play whatsoever, replace the bearing. Do the same for the other side.
-If no play was detected, do the following. Take the vehicle for a test drive, while driving approx 45mph, substantially sway the side to side. Does the tone or pitch of the noise change with the direction of the sway? If so, again, the bearings are bad. Write me back with the results of these tests and I will tell you which one to replace. Thanks...

My 2004 f-250 front end wobbles side to side @ about 45 mph and lopes when U turn sharp and back up. Has new tie rods. What might cause this? S.M.


Sounds like a belt shift in a front tire. Raise the vehicle and spin each front wheel while looking at the bottom surface from the front. Look for "runout" or a wobble in the bottom surface of the tire. You can also rotate the tires and see if the symptom moves to the rear

Side to side wheel play


It could be an indication of a bad wheel bearing assembly. Did you check the lug nuts to be sure they are tight? It could also be the tie rod assembly. I would take off the wheel and try to move the just the hub assembly. Do you hear any screeching/squealing noises? Any popping while you are driving? Are your tires wearing? All these are classic signs of a bad wheel bearing. Any decent tire/auto shop can put your car on a lift and check the wheel bearings.

Possible wheel bearing failure, ball joint failure or tie rod end failure. Does the wobble seem to be when tire is moved toward center of vehicle on top and bottom or front and back??

Jack up the jeep and spin the wheel by hand, does it rotate smoothly? Grab the tire at top and bottom (while off the ground) and try to pull the top of the tire out while you push the bottom of the tire in. Have someone watch to see if the the tire is moving in and out, it shouldn't. Also grab front of tire at middle, and back of tire at middle and try to move in and out. You should not see any movement. If you do, your wheel bearings may be shot, also check your axle U-joint to see if it's shot. Good Luck! Countrycurt0
