There's always caution to take heed of when performing maintenance. first you need to check if the bearing the pressed on cold or warm. to pull them off you'll need a special tool. if you've never done it, have a dealer do it.

    if you have a maintenance manual where you can follow the dissasembly and assembly steps, it's not too bad. but without that assistance, if you've never done it before, probably a mechanic.

Unibody should be checked @ a body shop that has measuring system to check length, width, height. If thats good replace rear suspension then get vehicle aligned. It will be safe and won't wear out your tires prematurely.

Right Rear Axle Bent. How much will parts cost


Hi,
Your PT Cruiser does not have a rear axle per se. It has individual spindles on the left and right side which have a wheel bearing / hub assembly attached to them. The wheel bearing assembly is what your rim / tire bolts on to. Bending a spindle is very hard to do, unless you hit a curb or pothole VERY hard. It does happen, but unlikely. Wheel bearings / hubs do go bad which can cause the wheel to camber at an angle producing drag, alignment problems, brake problems and uneven / unusual tire wear. If it breaks completely, the wheel can even come off while driving.
I could not find a listing on the spindle, but a wheel bearing runs around $50-$70 per side. Replacing one can be done at home, but requires a very large socket (most are 31mm) and at least a 1/2" breaker bar or impact wrench to remove the spindle nut. Also 1/2" torque wrench to re-install.
Reply for direction on removal / installation if you intend to do the work yourself. A shop will charge you in the $200 range to do it including the part, only takes about an hour labor. If spindle is indeed bent, you will be looking at an added amount for the part, I would say one would cost in the $200 range, as they are a precision tempered steel part......Mike

It is not really a quick fix i would suggest you have it done by a technician who knows what he is doing and has the correct equipment, you will need a press for exaple to press the new bearing into the hub.

Hope this advicde can assist you in making a decision.

Sounds like your alternator bearing are worn and will need to be replaced soon. Keep an eye on your alternator charging system, it may still be working fine (13.5-14.5 volts) but the bearing is warn and the alternator will fail when it does fail 100%.
Have your alternator inspected and replace it before winter comes.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

How do you change the front wheel bearings on a pt cruiser


The front wheel bearing are located in the wheel hubs. You will have to take the hubs to a shop to have them pressed out and the new ones pressed back in. I would not recommend doing this yourself unless you have the proper tools and know what you are doing.
