How do I know if my front wheel bearings are going out in my car

I have a 2002 Deawoo Lanos and when I went to have my value gasket replaced the mechanic said that my front wheel bearings are going out. And that it would cost about $750 to fix. How do I know if he is telling me the truth?

Jack up the car (SAFELY) so one wheel is just clear of the ground.

Grip the wheel with both hands and see if there is any movement when you "pull / push" the wheel.

If there IS movement ..... you need new bearings.

Good luck.

    I can't really say for sure about the cost since I live in the UK, but $750 (about £500 ish) sounds one heck of a lot of money to me.

    I would shop around and get a second opinion and several quotes.

    For the mechanically minded, if you know someone who could do it for you I would guess at less than $400 ...... probably much less.
    It's not a huge job.

    Good luck and best wishes.

My Daewoo Lanos has a really loud noise in the front of the car. I was told it was the wheel bearing or hub bearing. I'm not sure what to do with it. Also my a/c doesn't work and when I turn it on it makes...


Wheel bearings are difficult to tell which of the four at times.
Be sure to be adviced by an old fox in the game. Cars are sound boxes. I had a car and it actually was the last bearing being the guilty one. Wheel and hub bearing is the same to me. And there are other bearings there. Better shop around for cost estimate and guarantee on repair. DIY can be more costly if no mechanic. You pay parts and go about with DIY risks you pay at all times.
And official dealers are not allways the best. Dry not moving plastic hub caps can make a lot of nasty noise at low speed in narrow streets or underground parkings. If you have those get them off clean tyre rims and caps and grease them slight with teflon spray or so. Refit. Cost virtually nothing. Also make up other items coming up fore replacement not to overinvest in old wrecker with corrosion or too high mileage. Maybe your's is fine but calculate ahead. Including totall loss value on accident.

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 .

Is this rumbling wheel bearings or transmission?


If the sound is all the time, no matter what you are doing then it is the Transmission going bad. CV Joints, Wheel bearing will only make the noise when in rotation.. Also remember that this is a front wheel drive car, so it will throw you off thinking it is the wheel bearings or CV joints due to the front wheel drive
