Recently I got into a car accident where another car hit the side rear of my car. The impact of the car that hit me was so hard that it knocked my wheel off its axle.When I drove away from the scene my car swirved a little and it made a high pitch sweaking sound. Does anyone have a clue as to how much this repair would cost?

Re: 1992 Lesabre Buick wheel Knocked off Axle
Just to Repair the Rear End You are looking at Probably 1000 to 1500.00. Minimum. The Body work could get in the Way of the Tire also. Probably should get it repaired all at the same time. You will have to get an Estimate on the Bodywork. Every Body Shop is Different.

Re: 1992 Lesabre Buick wheel Knocked off Axle
Wheel was knocked off? Front or rear? Most definitely will be a wheel bearing involved. The parts if it is just a rear bearing should be under $50 , Under $70 for the front, and do check the rotors and calipers and brake pads, that is a good hit . If you feel the need to change any brake parts, always change that part on both sides.

I dont know whar kind of vehicle or how many miles on it but if its rear wheel drive you can replace either. the rear end will cost more than an axle but if it has alot of miles on it plus you dont know about the rest of the componenents inside do the whole thing
remove the wheel and brake drum then remove rear diff. cover put transmission in neutral roll rear diff. around until you see an 8 mm bolt , remove bolt then diff. pin then push axle in to un key axle key then pull axle out to get to seal remove seal with seal remover tool
In the steering wheel and passenger side dash.Due to the age of the vehicle probably doesn't have the curtain "side" airbags.The airbags were designed primarily for head on collisions. Here is some useful information to why the may have not deployed courtesy of http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec2001/collision.htm How Air Bags Work
To have a frontal (driver or passenger) air bag deploy, certain criteria must be met. One of these criteria is that the frontal impact must be within a 60-degree window, occurring within 30 degrees from the vehicle's centerline. Another key element is that the crash forces are equivalent to a head-on collision with an immovable barrier at 10-15 miles per hour. Because a typical automobile accident only lasts about 0.125 (1/8th) of a second, air bags deploy within 15 to 20ms after the initial crash impact. To create a protective cushion between the occupant and the vehicle's interior, the air bag inflates at speeds up to 200 mph within approximately 30ms after impact. This allows the occupant to contact a fully inflated bag within approximately 45 to 50ms after the initial crash impact. Approximately 100ms after impact the bag deflates.
try hitting the face of the drum with a large hammer until free from hub rotating the drum as you go. you may have to de-adjust the rear shoes once the drum is free from hub start by removing the oval shaped rubber plug for the adjustment window on the backing plate with a flat head srewdriver or brake adjusting tool and a small pick to push the anti reverese lever back rotate the star wheel oposit of the audible cliking. clicking is tightening once de-adjusted enough rotate and pull the drum off.
I don't understand your question fully (Hit?). If you were involved and a collision and your tire rubs on the fender, get the fender fixed ASAP! Tires can get peeled like a banana if they come into contact with any sharp piece of metal, and if its rubbing on the inner fender, then friction heat caused by this can cause the tire become weak in that area and subsequently blow out.... If that is not the problem, or case then her are more causes for tires rubbing...
Tires "Out of Alignment", non-factory rims and/or tires, wrong size,width, rim "off-set" etc., suspension coil springs and. or shocks (car sitting lower than usual), twisted chassis due to accident or other impacts
Yes, if it didn't do it before the accident but now it is then call your insurance co. and let them know it isn't fixed and the symptoms. It could be anything. A bent steering component, warped rim, etc.
