Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
2002 ford explorer. The car was fine when I drove it yesterday, but today there is a very noticeable sqeak from the front drivers side wheel area, only when turning to the right. Gets louder and more constant with higher speed. I just replaced my hub assembly a couple weeks ago. What might this be, and how urgent is a repair? Thanks for the help.
If you replaced the hub assembly did you make sure to lube your wheel and hub bearings? I would also try to lube that entire side of the car as well. Tie Rod ends can make a squeel as well so just make sure to grease anything in that general area. If it is a clunking noise or a squeeling when you turn it may be your axle shaft installed wrong and those little splines on the end can get rubbed off real fast causing heat and noise problems real fast. If all this checks you may want to look into a possible rack and pinion problem or maybe a steering gear. I would lubricate everything first though. Good Luck!
