Noise from front wheel while driving whinning turn steering slightly to left stops , if bearing can i do my self transit 280 ,53 plate
Sounds like the bearing is loose, yes you can do it yourself. Remove the bearing dust cap, do you see a cotter pin, if so jack up the front wheel, remove the cotter pin and locking ring, then place your hand just at the bottom of the bearing, using your other hand gently tap the top of the tire, the bearing should come out, inspect it to make sure it is okay and not in need of replacement, repack the bearing with new bearing grease and reinstall it. Ajust the bearing to 0 play, do this by tightening the bearing nut, and grab the tire at the top with one hand and bottom with the other, then push and pull in opposite directions at the same time, if the tire wobbles then tighten the bearing a little more until the tire will not wobble. Spin the tire around forwards and then backwards serveral time and check for 0 play again. After spinning and 0 play is good, reinstall the nut locking device and cotter pin, and dust cover. Hope this helps, let me know.
