SOURCE: replace front wheel bearings

The bearings in your car are pressed into a hub. If the part is available as an assembly, it can be replaced that way. Generally on a front drive car:
Remove wheels and brake calipers
If it is pressed in: remove the rotors, disconnect the drive shafts and remove the steering knuckle. Then the old bearing is pressed out and the new one pressed in with a machine shop press. If the bearing is part of the hub, that will be unbolted and the new one swapped.

On a scale of 1-10 difficulty, Id rate it a strong 7

SOURCE: front wheel noise whilst driving

Yes it sounds like a wheel bearing.I would jack the suspected wheel off the ground and then grab it from the top and bottom and then try to move it with a push and pull movement.If the wheel moves that is most likely the bad one.I would also try the other wheel just to be sure.The bearing isn't to bad a price but the bearing needs to be pressed in and out to be replaced.

SOURCE: wheel bearing replacement left front

Diagnosing the bearings can be tricky depending on severity of wear. Typically - drone noise at highway speeds, squeeling, clicking or grinding noises at low speeds that reduce during braking, or pull off the wheel and brake assembly and check the bearing for slack or smoothness of rotation by hand. While doing this, check the brake assembly thoroughly - generally a more likely culprit of wheel noise.

Wheel bearing replacement is not for the novice backyard mech. - you will need pullers, press, etc. If you can get a rebuilt assembly - much easier.

I need to replace the alternator. How difficult is it going to be. Am I going to have to move things out of the way to get to it or is it fairly accessible?


Hi, yes, this is a pretty big job but not really hard. You have to jack up the car and go in through the wheel well to get the alternator out. Fortunately, there are good instructions at autozone.com, which I have pasted below. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 2 through 11

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the serpentine drive belt.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  4. Remove the right front wheel from the vehicle.
  5. Remove the right wheel inner fender splash shield.
  6. If equipped, remove the alternator dust shield attaching bolt and unclip the shield from the alternator. When removing the dust shield, be careful not to damage the rubber boot over the battery's positive terminal.
  7. Disengage the alternator field wire connector.
  8. Remove the retaining nut and wire from the positive (B+) terminal on the back of the alternator, using alternator output stud wrench SA9401C or equivalent, as a back-up wrench to prevent the stud from rotating. If the positive terminal stud rotates, the plastic insulator will crack or break, causing alternator failure.
  9. Remove the upper and lower alternator attaching bolts.
  10. Remove the alternator from the vehicle through the wheel well opening.

To install:
  1. Position the alternator in the vehicle and install the lower attaching bolt.
  2. Install the upper attaching bolt and tighten both bolts to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm).
  3. Engage the alternator field wire connector.
  4. Install the B+ terminal wire. The battery terminal wire should be placed on the back of the alternator between a 10 and 11 o'clock position.
  5. Be sure to use the alternator output stud wrench SA9401C to prevent the terminal stud from rotating, then tighten the alternator positive terminal nut to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Install the alternator dust shield and tighten the fastener bolt to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  7. Install the serpentine drive belt.
  8. Install the wheel well splash shield and right front wheel. Tighten the wheel lugs in a criss-cross pattern to 103 ft. lbs. (140 Nm).
  9. Remove the supports and lower the vehicle.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.

Right front wheel bearing is bad how do I change it


  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely. Place jackstands under the frame, then lower the vehicle slightly to allow the control arms to hang free.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning, then remove the hub/drive axle nut. Clean the threads of the nut.
    1. Unfasten the caliper mounting bolts, then remove and support the caliper aside with a suitable piece of wire.
    2. Remove the rotor by sliding it from the hub.
    3. If equipped with ABS, detach the front wheel speed sensor connector and unclip it from the dust shield.

    The hub and bearing are replaced only as an assembly.
    For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
  4. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub from the halfshaft.
  5. Remove the hub and bearing retaining bolts, shield, hub and bearing assembly and the O-ring.
  6. Separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle, using the proper tool.
  7. Remove the halfshaft assembly and tap the seal from the steering knuckle. Remove the steering knuckle from the hub.
  8. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Unfasten the hub and bearing retaining bolts and dust shield.
    2. Place the transaxle in PARK.
    3. Using a suitable front hub spindle removal tool, separate the hub and bearing from the drive axle.
    4. If necessary, remove the steering knuckle.

  9. Clean the rust and foreign material from the knuckle mounting face, bore and chamfer to allow the bearing to properly seat in the knuckle.
To install:
  1. For 1993-99 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. If removed, install the steering knuckle.
    2. Position the hub and bearing assembly to the drive axle. Apply a light coating of grease to the knuckle bore. If the new hub and bearing has a protective plastic cover, remove it before installation. Also, do not handle the knuckle or hub assembly by the ABS sensor wire.
    3. Install a new drive axle nut and draw the hub and bearing onto the axle.
    4. Place the transaxle in NEUTRAL.
    5. Install the dust shield, being careful not to damage the bearing outboard lip seal.
    6. Install the hub and bearing bolts, then tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

  2. For 1987-92 vehicles, perform the following:
    1. Install a new hub and bearing seal in the steering knuckle with a suitable seal installation tool. Install the steering knuckle to the strut.
    2. Lubricate the hub and bearing with grease. Fill the cavity between the seal and bearing completely.
    3. Install the halfshaft.
    4. Connect the ball joint to the steering knuckle and insert a new O-ring around the hub and bearing assembly.
    5. Install the hub and bearing, and shield into the steering knuckle. Tighten the bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (90 Nm).

  3. If equipped, attach the ABS front wheel speed sensor connector, then clip the wire to the dust shield.
  1. Install the rotor and caliper assembly. Tighten the caliper bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
  2. Insert a drift punch into the caliper and rotor vanes to prevent the rotor from turning. If not already done, install the shaft washer and nut (if equipped). Tighten the nut to the following specifications:
  3. 1987-88 vehicles: 3 ft. lbs. (270 Nm).
  4. 1989-90 vehicles: 15 ft. lbs. (260 Nm).
  5. 1991-99 vehicles: 107 ft. lbs. (145 Nm).
  6. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
  7. Carefully lower the vehicle, then tighten the lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm).

On a hard left turn there is a grinding noise from the driver side front tire. Have done a visual inspection and everything looks fine. No play in wheel bearings. This is a 2005 Scion xb


If its the bearing - there might not be any play..
Bad bearing usually get worse & worse pretty quick..

Shouldnt be the problem on a 05 - but have you looked at the CV joints ?

Tchirp sound on my wheels on Audi A4


It sound like you have touch all the base, so your going to need to check the dust shield on the back side of the rotor. Make sure that it has not gotten bent forward towards the rotor and wheel rim area of travel. It's a common thing to happen as the brakes heat up the dust shied warps slightly and if there is not enough gap between the dust shield and rotor, and rim will make the chirping noise you hear. You may not even have top remove the wheel to fix this, just turn your wheel all the way to one side so you can get to the back side of the brake assembly and push the dust shield away from the rotor/wheel area. Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted. be glad to help you get rid of that Gremlin.

Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.

If it isn't the brake pad worn out, then it is the brake backing/dust guard sheet metal shield ( AKA backing plate), take a suitable device like a large screwdriver and bend the backing plate away from the rotor. Problem solved.
