    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.

    no its not hard to do you have to take the wheel off pop the center cap off to get to the kotter pin and get the nut out take the brakes loose and pull the hub off,,,,youll see the bearings inside and youll want to replace both the inner and outter bearings on that wheel

    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.

ok, think about mass that moves under the forces of braking, things like engines and gearboxes, have you checked all those mounts for integrity, have a look to see if anything has been rubbing, new shiney spots appearing that weren't there before.

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

I have a roaring/grinding noise in the front passenger side wheel of a 99 dodge ram 1500 4wd. i checked for play in the wheel and there is none. i also checked the clearance on the dust guard. everything...


sounds like your brakes on that side are metal to metal, tearing up your rotor... when they get this bad, they will make noise all the time and you dont have to be using your brakes for them to grind and roar

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.

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.

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.
