18 mm for the Lower Ball joint Pickle fork-- and Tie rod --, 22mm or 15/16th for top of steering Knuckle
36mm at Axel Nut-- and 13mm for THE WHEEL BEARING Itself --- Bite it in a VICE they are Realy on there tight>> I Recomend Complete removal because you have the CV Boot Right there and one slip and Away goes the Boot.-- ALSO Be Carefull with the Antilock ring & Pickup Wire & Plug. Takes about 1.3 Hours per Brng
I Hope this is helpfull have a good day !!!!!!!!!

Yes this sounds like your wheel bearing. you will replace the whole hub. after you remove caliper and rotor you will need to remove axle nut (36mm??) three 15mm bolts hold hub on

Loud growling noise from front end when vehicle reaches about 25 mph but goes away when turning left or right


Sounds like a CV axle. Generally it is a clicking more than a growling sound. Listening to it while up on jack stands will be mor useful than I in this case

2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right


This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

How is the tire pressure monitor reset when a new tire and rim is changed.


If the tire pressures were low and you put them back to the right pressures (use the placard on the lf door) then the car will need to be driven above 25mph for at least 10 miles or so but dont go over 40 mph the light may even start to flash as this is being done indicating that the module is running the sensor test. if that doesnt work then the car will need to be put on a scan tool to be reset.

Hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Low level growling noise at rt. front wheel increases with speed. No change if in or out of gear. Can start hearing noise begining about 38 mph. very slight vibration Car has 77,000 miles and is well...


first rotate the tires see if there is a change. If that does not have a desirable effect there may be a worn wheel bearing,take note if the sound or vibration gets louder as you turn a corner, try left turns as well as right turns if the noise increases it is a wheel bearing.

I have the same problem and it turned out the rear wheel bearing wad the culprit. Not a cheap fix (around 300.00) since you have to replace the whole assy.

Hearing growling whine sound from passenger side front. Growling produces fast vibration (not shimmy). Sound increases on left hand turns. Sound more pronounced below 60 mph.


You need to replace your wheel bearing. Ford Escape bearings usually need changed around 80,000+ miles from my experience.

Weird Sound while in motion


Hi,

To my knowledge, the only possible source of any growl (noise) underneath the car towards the center or rear would be the exhaust pipe after the converter before the muffler. Often they use rubber dougnuts as hanger support. A loose or broken support would significantly misalign thie exhaust pipe enough to cause vibration or wind induced noise.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
