    The bearings on the Kia are pressed. I have a 2003 Kia Sedona and mine just went in for the second set of bearings this evening. I don't think unless your a mechanic you will be able to do this easily.

    Ronnie Houston - you're so very wrong about taking this off. People, its not near that easy. The bearings are pressed in and you have to do a lot more than Ronnie described. He described taking one off a standard GM,Ford, or Chrysler product. Not so with a kia where you have to take half the front end assembly off on each side. And unless you have a press, don't think about removing bearings with a hammer and socket. And I'm supposed to know what I'm doing. This "one hour " job turned into all day and then I took to repair shop. $300.00 per wheel.

SOURCE: I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem

Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

I am trying to find out what is making my front end grind on passenger side when i drive down the road on 2000 ford taurus


Check the front brake rotor. When the brake pads wear down too far they will make a grinding noise. I am not sure what sound the axle makes when they begin to wear out. I would check the boot that covers the axle joint for any damage.

Front right side is making a grinding noise while in two wheel, sounds like 4 wheel drive wont disengage all the way. took hub off everything looks ok. heard that it could be a vacuum problem. did notice...


Could either be a bad vacuum line or the TSB for the IWE solenoid.

If you have the truck running in park ( parking brake, chock wheels, necessary safety precautions ) check the vacuum on the front right IWE vacuum line. there are 2 vacuum hoses on there, 1 is the vac, the other is the vent, which routes up into the engine compartment, and is not hooked to anything.

Usually if it is the TSB, both sides will be making the grinding noise, as they are a common IWE solenoid

TSB : http://my.voyager.net/~sscully/file_tsb06_08_15.pdf

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vacuum is removed the spring engages the IWE.

My right passenger front brakes are making a grinding sound and when i make a right turn as well it grinds. what seems to be the problem?


A grinding noise can be no friction material on the pads, also a loose wheel bearing allowing the rotor to hit metal or caliper,a loose caliper can cause that noise,a bad wheel bearing can also due this . The sooner you get it look at the less it will be the longer the more it cost

Grinding noise passenger side front


Check wheel bearing.
Check backing brake plate , sometimes it's bended and touching brake rotor.
If wheel bearing is bad , you may have same effect with backing plate , brake rotor touch backing plate.

Front passenger side wheel makes a grinding noise when driving at low speeds. sound gets quieter as I speed up. when I take foot off gas, sound gets louder. braking dont seem to make any difference


sounds like a wheel bearing is going out. you need to get this checked out pretty soon because this can cause more severe problems down the road

It makes a grinding noise and only on the passenger side. just started making noise when turning


Check brakes, then check axle bearing. If brakes check out OK, then jack up so the wheel is off the ground, put car in neutral, now spin the wheel and put one hand on the coil spring, if you feel any roughness, the bearing is bad.

Grinding noise front end.


I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.

(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)
