Put vehicle on a lift and listen for howling from under the car. Sound like an axle bearing,hub hearing. Basically gonna need a new axle

SOURCE: I have a 95 jetta
Jetta uses 2 tapered roller bearings on each side.
Remove the dust cap off the centre of the drum. Remove the split pin. Remove the nut and washer. The drum will now come off. Clear the rear axle of all brake dust and grease. Remove the races from the drum by using tapping them out. You wil need a metal dowel (I us my socket wrench's extention). Clean out the old grease and assure that the race seat is propely cleaned When reinstalling the new race use the old one to drive the new one in. Be careful and make sure the race is properly seated as incorrect fitment will lead to premature failure. Fit a new grease seal(dont forget to insert the bearing first)

SOURCE: Left wheel shaking. How
jack your car and block it
remove the tire
now look at the center of the drum and take the cap off the middle use a pair of chanel locks
once off you will see a cotter pin bend it strate and pull it out
now take the nut off once that is off its time to pull the drum off watch the barring will fall out
Ware you took the nut off
once the drum is in your hand lay it down and take a long screwdriver and push the back
barring out you will get a seal and barring drop out on the in side now is ware you want to look in side the hole in side you will see two shinny round races 1 in the front and 1 in the rear they
need to be knocked out you knock the rear out from the front
and the front out from the rear that is called barring and a race remember witch one is front
and witch one is rear all you need to do is clean them so you can read the numbers on the
barring and the race also clean the seal same thing you need the id numbers to match them
hope this helps you bob

Overloading the car... I've got a bridge for sale, in Brooklyn but you will have to move it.I'd bet money that he didn't pack them properly with grease when he installed them. Otherwise the bearing was defective from the manufacturer, 3 months should still have warranty. Hope this helps.

Snug them up, then back them off about two increments where the cotter pin goes in. Wheel should spin freely. If not back nut off.Take a short test drive, a km or so. Feel the wheels in the center, warm is normal, but not hot. If hot back the nut off.
