Bad wheel bearing

I am trying to find out what would be the approximate cost to replace my rear wheel bearing if an mechanic did it. Also how difficult would it be for a layperson to do it? Money is tight.

Extremly loud grinding noise in the rear of my car


jack the rear of the vehicle up, spin the wheel by hand, and put your free hand on the strut spring, if a bearing is bad , the roughness should travel through the suspension and you can feel it most amplified in the spring.

I've been told the differential in my '02 Explorer is bad. What is an approximate cost to have it replaced and can it be repaired with factory rebuilt parts? Rear wheel bearings all sound ok. Car...


Find a good shop that does differentials and take it to them. This people ( automotivepartsunlimited ) could sell the complete unit for the 2002+ IRS rears and typically when they get their core back it was a bearing that was making the noise. Some people are spending 1000 bucks plus on a complete rear when they probably could have gotten the repair done for 250 bucks or so.

About parts replacement, could check in the next links:

Hope helps.

Could you please tell me the cost to replace rear left wheel bearing on 2004 Hyundai Sonata.


Rear wheel bearing should not be very much. Front would be considerably more. Find a reputable mechanic with a reasonable shop rate. STAY AWAY from car dealerships , they always , always , always overcharge.

Front wheel bearings need replacement. At what cost?


wheel bearings are'nt that expensive. i would buy 4 bearings and replace all four on the truck. the cost of two or four labour should be the same. a mechanic should have it done for you. buy the bearings youself and let the mechanic do it for you. good luck

Have a roaring noise coming from the rear


sounds like a wheel bearing to this mechanic, if you have near 100,000 miles that is almost certainly the problem.

Road noise / front end vibration


The noise you're hearing is consistent with a bad wheel bearing. It's true, the only way to actually tell is to pull the hub/bearing. I'd try to isolate what side of the car the noise is coming from and pull that wheel. If it's not a wheel bearing, it could be transmission related but these things are usually solved by replacing the wheel bearing.

Bad rear axle bearing with probable damage to inner bearings


If you have a bad bearing than there is probably metal throughout the whole rear end. I would contact a toyota wrecking yard and price a complete rear end for your vehicle. Search online for a toyota wrecking yard in your area. A complete rear end will be around $600 dollars.

Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
