Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre
Posted by Anonymous on
Need to take it in and have the mechanic take a look. CV joint is easy and reasonable to fix, Transmission is not.

I had the same problem with my 2000 Buick LeSabre last year. Took it in and they determined the wheel bearing needed to be replaced. Costs about $300 per bearing, but definitely needs to be replaced as you'd be in serious trouble if the thing went out at highway speeds.

SOURCE: bearings or cv joint?
For quickly ruling out the CV Joint, in a parking lot, turn one way in a sharp circle, then the other way circle sharply. A clicking sound is indicative of a bad c/v joint or 1/2 shaft.
Humming while in motion (most of times it will only occur during a specific speed range - over a certain speed goes away) says a wheel bearing is shot.
Normally you should replace both at the same time... however you can check with a laser temp gauge each front hub after driving. The hotter one is bad - or a less scientific approach is to swerve going down the road. and listen for an decrease in noise going in one diretcion over the other.
If you are turning the steering wheel right, and the noise goes away, the right bearing is bad and vice versa.

you are correct that would be a bad wheel bearing.if you raise the cars wheels off the ground and spin the wheels by hand you should be able to isolate the noise to a specific wheel. i do believe that particular vehicle you have to change the wheel hub as that it is sold as a unit which is better so you don't have to use a press for anything. i think it's mounted by three bolts but you have to remove the tire, brake caliper, brake rotor, and axle retainer nut. hope this sheds some light for you. if this helps please rate me.
