    someone stated if the ground wire came off by the struts it causes the bearings to pit?? SURE ENOUGH the wire was broke,just put struts on and the bearings were pitted beyond believe. Almost welded to the spindles. Got all races and bearings off. Tommorrow hope to get parts. Thanx all. Someone should put a good diagram of the bearings and races in the hub?

I've had this problem 3 times (on my 03 cruiser). The bearings need to be replaced.

Idle valve or a possible vacuum hose leak. check for leaks or loose connections at the intake boots from the air cleaner past the mass airflow sensor and any hoses that go to the intake manifold to see if they are old , cracked , or just worn out,, can cut 1/4 inch off the end and re attach in some cases,,, if the hose end is worn out

Grinding noise from front wheel 02 pt cruiser

john, this could be the bearings in the hub end of the short shaft, the brake rotor, or the brake pad. I own a 2001 and have had this problem. It was the rotor, I don't know why they treat brakes like they do but I changed both rotors, and changed the struts while I was there. Hope this helps.

Whirring noise from the front of car as you drive.

I would first rule out the possibility of a "rough" tire making the noise. You can move the two front tires to the rear of the vehicle and see if that changes the noise any. If it does, you might have a worn tire that needs replacing or a tire that has worn unevenly and should be rotated and balanced more often....

Good luck..

It's located inside the passenger side front wheel well in front of the front tire.You take it out through the wheel well once the tire is removed.
