WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

Maybe the wrong one was replaced,these are tricky sometimes it sounds like the rightside but is really the leftside or the bearing was installed wrong or the bearing is not the noise, the best way is to get it on a lift and run it in drive and try to pinpoint the noise.

SOURCE: how do i replace bad front wheel bearing ?

Replace the hub assembly which can be bought for $58 to $100 from various sources.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Place jackstands under the cradle and lower the vehicle slightly so the weight of the vehicle rests on the jackstands and not on the control arms.
  3. Remove the wheel assembly.
  4. Insert a drift punch into the rotor and remove the hub nut/washer.
  5. Remove the brake caliper, support and the rotor.
  6. Using the front hub spindle remover tool, separate the halfshaft from the hub.
  7. Remove the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts and the hub/bearing assembly. To install:
  8. If replacing the seal, drive the seal towards the engine. Cut the seal off the halfshaft; be careful not to damage the halfshaft boot. NOTE: If the speed sensor bracket is removed or loosened from the steering knuckle, the speed sensor gap must be adjusted. If the speed sensor is removed from the bracket, speed sensor wax must be applied to the sensor before it is reinstalled in the bracket. Failure to apply the wax will permit corrosion and may result in sensor failure.
  9. To install the new grease seal, lubricate the with wheel bearing grease and using the hub seal installer tool, install the seal.
  10. Install the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts and the hub/bearing assembly. Tighten the hub/bearing assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  11. Install the halfshaft to the hub.
  12. Install the rotor and caliper.
  13. Install the hub nut and washer. Tighten to 183 ft. lbs. (245 Nm).
  14. Install the wheel assembly.
  15. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.

Makes trobbing grinding noise when turning left


It could be a bad wheel bearing, and if so it probably is the passenger side, but check them both sides. Raise both wheels off the ground, or one at a time, and rock the wheel back and forth and up and down. The side with the bad bearing will have a lot more play in it.
To replace, the wheel "hub" with sealed bearing inside is replaced. The hub is bolted to the wheel knuckle, which supports the hub, the CV joint and axle shaft, the brake caliper and rotor, and the wheel itself. If you are experienced at car repair and have the proper tools, you can do it yourself. At a shop, expect a 2-4 hour labor bill, maybe under 2 hours if everything comes off easily. The cost of the hub and sealed bearing is probably less than $100, although prices can vary greatly.

My right front wheel makes a rattlen sound while i drive, jacked it and when i shack my wheel it moves a little in and out. what could this be? Thanks!!!! 1989 cadillac deville


Please replace your wheel bearings before you drive it anymore. It could possibly cause the wheel to come off and go into your wheel well. Your wheel bearings are bad..Depending on how much you drove it after hearing it, you may need a new spindle also.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.


You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

Bad new bearing I would imagine. It is probably Mexican made and inferior to US parts. Factory parts are the best to buy and of course expensive

Wheel Bearings


Yep - our cars are known for eating wheel bearings (I have a 99 2.8 quattro). I just did my rear left, which was howling, and now that it is quiet, I can hear the rear right going bad. The B5 chassis cars (96-01) are known for wheel bearing, control arm, and cruise control failures almost as much as they're known for fantastic driving and excellent traction in bad weather.
