    Sorrt mate but I had the same problem 6 months ago, the answer is that you have to buy a full hub asembley which incorporates the bearing and they come out at about £150 each, I had to have both changed and it cost me £600 I will say that its as quiet as a lamb now, hope this helps

    the front bearings are only sold by the dealer and are part of the front hub, just like my Corvette, very expensive.

What type of puller. do I need for a 96 Ford contour front wheel drive front wheel bearing .

I am reasonably sure there is no front wheel bearing on a front wheel drive car, the hub is usually splined and slides onto the drive shaft. I may be wrong but I dont think so.

Why have I a deep droning noise when doing 35 mph in my jag x-type

This will be hard to answer without more information.
Reasons it could be.
Tire noise notable from cheap tires or tire noise from road surface as in concrete roads etc.
Wheel bearings (admittedly normally heard when turning).
Low tire pressure.
Rear wheel drive vehicles it could be the differential.
the list goes on and on without more info it will be hard to diagnose .

Recently had a front wheel collapse onmy s type jaguar ive had it fixed but the DSC light is on and ABS is coming on under breaking on drivers side front wheel any ideas

the jaguar front wheel bearing comes complete with a abs sensor and bearing cover if someone has removed the cover it sounds like the air gap between sensor and the reluctor ring is to great or has someone renewed just bearing and not the hub unit like you are ment to do? have a good look at the rear of the bearing cover.

Dull humming sound from front end of car sound increases and decreases with speed of car.

that would most likely be tires and/or wheel bearing, common thing on these cars, also a way to check if its wheel bearings is to listen when you turn, does it get louder when you turn left or right, if it does it sounds like wheel bearings, run your hand on the tread of the front tires, are they smooth or does it feel jagged? if it feels jagged then you need an alignment. i'd have a shop check the wheel bearings and alignment.

It could be the selenoid lock it self , which is located at he front of the Selector. You might need to remove the selector and test it if it is working properly. As it should be working for safety reasons

Need to replace the left front wheel bearing on my wife's car

Too bad I am not at work I could call on a price for a bearing. To be honest that is not too bad of a price on a bearing installed. Most Jag parts need to be purchased from Jag. A typical price for a sealed hub bearing unit is about $140 retail for a chevy corsica(just did 2 on one on monday) to about $300-400 on a ford super duty. and that is not including labor. You need air tools, a torque wrench and lock tight thread locker for this job. And something to remove any corrosion from mounting surfaces
1. jack up car,take wheel off.
2. remove brake caliper
3.remove rotor
4.remove whats holding bearing on. Either one big nut on outside or three to four bolts that hold it to the knukle.
this is how most cars are now,if its rear wheel drive its a peice of cake ,fwd is a little more difficult.

Driving down road there is a roaring sound even when you slow down. Appears to be tire noise. Tires are wearing out on the inside. When you hit a bump there is a clunking sound underneath.

Sounds like you have some bad bushings, ball joints, or bearings. Take it into the repair shop unless you have the special tools to repair a Jag front suspension. The parts falling off my Jag are of the finest British make!!
