Question about 1997 Plymouth Neon

Right Front Hub Noise- 1997 Neon

I have a constant whirring noise in the right front hub area. Maybe a dry bearing problem? Do I need to replace the full hub assembly or can one just put in bearings like we used to in the old days? IE: If pressed bearings then would it be easier/cheaper to put in a new hub assembly? Also, are there any major issues with this such as the whole hub blowing up? What about poor gas mileage? Thanks.

You need to buy the whole assembly. i know what you mean. I have a '68 coronet that still has the origional wheel bearings in it, and now they don't last 5 years. ( and they wonder why they're all gone broke)
No, it shouldn't blow up, but it will keep getting worse, and it probably does affect your mileage, somewhat.

My Dodge Grand Caravan is making a humming noise as you accelerate, while turning left it stops but gets worse while turning right. I replaced the left front wheel hub and no improvement, I need help


if hub bearing replacement did not fix the noise

when noises are on left and right turns
that has CV joints /drive shafts
would say they are the issue
replace both sides

and replace the left hand hub bearing at the same time

2008 siverado. Front-end humming. Sounds like extremely loud tire pattern noise coming from left-front wheel area, noise stops when i turn the steering wheel to the right. replaced tire with no results.


it is your wheel bearing. the bearing is a sealed unit so you replace the hub assembly. remove wheel,caliper,brake rotor.if it is 4x4 loosen axle nut. there are three 15mm bolts on back side of spindle remove these and slide hub out replace with new one. most hubs come with new wheel speed sensor so remove harness from connectors or if no new one remove the screw holding it in place to hub and slide out.

I replaced hub on front axel but the noise is


It sounds like it is a front end suspension problem. The following should be checked: upper and lower ball joints, the sway bars links, and even the shocks. Replace what is problematic, and your front-end noise should disappear, if it is a front suspension problem. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!

Noise from front end more so when you are turning


You also could have received a bad axle. Sometimes the rebuilds don't hold good tolerance and can make the same noise you are trying to get rid of. Is it full-time 4wd? Maybe the driveshaft ujoint also.

Severe bearing noise from front wheel bearing/cv joint area.Cv joint still lubricated,I tend to think axle support bearing is dry & on the way out,but only assuming.How does front wheel bearing come out of...


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 .
