You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

SOURCE: 2006 saturn ion front end noise...wheel bearings?

Yes you can do this; the bearings are sealed unit hubs; very easy the cost is only about $70 each at an auto parts store. once you look at them you'll know how to do this.

SOURCE: severe bearing noise from front wheel bearing/cv

you have to replace bearing and hub as a unit.you have to remove remove brakes and caliper rotor set them aside dont disconnect brake line. get a piece of clothes rack wire to hold brake caliper .do not let it hang by brake hose. you got to remove hub nut. best way to do that is loosen it a litttle while tire still on weight of car keep wheel from turning .

Front end rotation noise


It should have been thoroughly checked. Noises like these on four wheel drives could several different things. A bearing, CV axle, or the differential, or bearings in the differential. A wheel bearing will make different sounds when making a turn. A CV axle is a constant sound. Differential bearings can come and go, depending on if it is a bearing for the axle or a pinion bearing. Axle side bearings usually make a constant noise. The differential can also come and go. Depends on acceleration or slowing down. All these sounds are also with a vibration. Slight to harsh.

Front end popping/grinding and vibration from right front end


Bad news Aaron. Your symptoms sound exactly like a bad CV joint. And shame on the dealer for not thinking of that. If the CV is indeed bad, consider having the car towed to the dealership, as this can be dangerous condition.

What could cause a thumping noise from the front end when turning at low speed?


sounds like wheel bearings-1st
but hopefully your front disc need turning, or replaced.
check wheel bearings by jacking up the front end "CAREFULLY" WITH
JACK STANDS & wiggle tires,if you get more than a 1/4'' slack on 1 or the other, than it's shot. Best to replace both sides. "GOOD LUCK'' &
BE CAREFULL.

I have aloud humming noise from the frontend of my car i thought it was a wheel bearing but it was not any ideas is it the axle


im not sure the type of car or teuck this is but a humming sound from the front end is common with a bad tire or the most common is a wheel bearing, have you checked both wheel bearings? iu have worked on many wheel bearing noises and i will tell you it sounds like its on one side but its on the other side or in the rear, this humming i assume is when its rolling and gets louder with speed, its got to be a tire bearing or in the trany if its front wheel drive.

Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.


Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

Alero loud humming/roaring sound coming from front end.


That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).

As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.

If your turning your car to the right when it make the noise or the Left Listen and find out because which ever way the noise is loudest usually meaning that is the side going bad, Thats the rule Usually some cars and trucks have fronts and rear bearings, But I think it is a wheel bearing, Have a mechanic or a friend that may turn some wrench's Check it out for you. Hope that helps you out. :))

Terrible Front End noise


Good Day,
It would make sense that it is suspension related as it does not make noise at idle but going down the road it does. I would lean towards it being a bad wheel bearing. Does it sound like it's coming from one side or the other? Also how many miles on the car? Does it get louder when the wheels are turning?

You can check the bearing easily by jacking up that wheel and moving it side to side and up down checking for play, a little bit of play is normal.

Hope this helps and Good Luck
