This isn't a particularly expensive fix. You can even do it yourself provided the knuckle and hub are in good condition.

Bearings usually cost somewhere around the $100-$150 mark. A garage might charge you for a couple of hour of labour on top of parts - maybe $400?

If you do decide to do it yourself, here are two good resources. The first is a generic guide but the second is actually your car so that should make it really easy for you!

Sometimes, it can be quite easy to find an entire hub assembly (including the bearings, knuckle and hub). This can make replacing bearings even easier at times. Good places to find these can include wrecked cars, however you need to be careful that the car hasn't done just as many miles as yours and is therefore likely to need new bearings too!

Hope this helps,
Daniel

SOURCE: need instruction manual/schematics for replacing 2005 kia rio driver side rear wheel bearing. i've got the wheel/hub/bearing off, not the inside ring to the bearing. i need to know how to replace it .

clean all the grease if there is any out of the hub, turn the hub over and using a drift and hammer strike the shell from the back edge working around the shell as you go, should not take too much to remove it but you will need a bit more than a tap with the hammer.
Hope this has helped you

1998 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0 automatic transmission AC repair and replace front driver side wheel bearing after two months they start to howl again and I don't know why please help


Let's separate the two things.

If the wheel bearing goes bad after 2 months, either it was defective, or it wasn't properly lubricated before installation.

If the transmission isn't working properly after 2 months, then that wasn't done properly, and needs to be fixed properly. If you did it, that may be a problem. If a transmission shop did it, it should be fixed under warranty.

The drivers side windshield wiper arm stopped working although the passenger side wiper is still working. What would be the easiest way to fix it? Should I even bother checking the fuse before the...


65% sure it could the linkage and not a fuse promblem since the other passenger wiper is still working which would have to say the wiper motor is still working, 40 % could be that the linkage is intact and you have a worn out driver side wiper arm bearing..., what you want to check out before the linkage is the gear bearing that holds the wiper arms. You take the rubber thing that cover the bolt on the wiper arm and see if the bolt is loose and if not, unscrew the bolt and see if the tooth gears on the bolt and the wiper arm is worn/dull, if it is.... that can be the promblem.

The car is making a roaring noise going down the road, if I turn the steering wheel to the left it stops, if I turn to the right it gets louder. Any ideas?


Good Morning. What this sounds like is the exact diagnosing of a front hub assembly really not that pricey either, and a common problem. Last one I did a few days ago even with the noise calming down going the other way ended up being both hubs. I hope this helps and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks,
Joey

2004 grand prix roaring noise


It really sounds like a wheel bearing to me, If you drive down a straight smooth road and gently rock the steering wheel back and forth, you can sometimes tell which side it is by the way the car loads the front wheels. I believe this bearing can be purchased as hub and bearing assembly so it is fairly easy to replace but the part is pricey. Remove the wheel, brake caliper and rotor, look through the hub flange access holes and undo the mounting bolts and pull the bearing assembly out of the knuckle.

How to change wheel bearing on a 2000 vw bug


The bearing has to be pressed out and pressed back in. If you do not have access to a 10 ton press you can use what I use. I made a special tool to reinstall these types of bearings and it works on all cars. (What you need to make the tool: 12 inches of 3/4 inch threaded stock 2- 3/4 inch flat washers and 2- 3/4 inch nuts, one piece of flat billet aluminum bar 6 inches long 1/2 inch thick (drill a 3/4 inch hole in the center of the flat aluminum bar so the threaded stock fit in it), 1 set of  bearing race drivers.  Remove the steering knuckle from the car. Remove the bearing retainer clips and find the right size race driver that fits right to the outside edge of the bearing. Now chuck the knuckle up good in a bench vise and use the race driver to hammer out the old bearing from the back side of the knuckle. It takes a few good lick but it will hammer (2 lb ball peen) out!  Once you have the old bearing out clean up the hole with some emory cloth or 400 grit sand paper.  Now here's the fun part. Take the 6 inch aluminum bar and put it on the threaded stock with a washer and a nut. Put the other end of the threaded stock through the knuckle from the back side. Put the bearing over the end sticking out of the knuckle from the front side. Find the race driver that fits right to the outside of the new bearing and put it on the threaded stock with a washer and a nut. Now by hand, tighten the nut on the back side until it is snug and the bearing is against the knuckle. Make sure the bearing is square to the knuckle and not cocked just line it all up straight. Now hold the back side nut with one wrench and turn the front side nut with another wrench and the bearing will slide right into the knuckle. Reinstall retainer clips and put it back on the car. NOTE: Be sure to wear safety goggles while hammering. You might want to use some grease between the bar aluminum ,washers and nuts. I know this sounds like a lot of work but I usually do a front wheel bearing in about 30 minutes on the VW's. I hope this helps and if you have anymore questions or need help along the way just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa and good luck!!
