Question about 1998 Ford Escort

Fried rear bearing

So I replaced my rear bearing on the passanger side and i thought it was fine till I was driving along and the wheel locked up,
took the drumb off the rear and the the second bearing (nearest suspension) was fried, half worn.

So my question is was this caused by tightening it too much, I tighteded it a fair bit by standing on it.

any ideas???

SOURCE: Rear Axle Bearing

i know for a fact that the bearing comes with the hub., and if the old bearing is badly damage you may need to heat it to remove it from the axel...so this may be a rather big job if your not equipt
with torch or other ...

SOURCE: replace rear wheel bearing 2002 ford explorer 4x4

you must remove brakes, then remove axle nut, then remove upper control arm and finally tie rod stabilizer, remove axle from car then bearing can be accessed. this is a difficult job that requires special tools so be careful

SOURCE: The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford

I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

How do I replace the rear end wheel bearing on driver side? It's a 2007 Crown Victoria. I was driving it to work one day and the back end locked up. It will drive forward but it makes the most horrific...


#1. A wheel bearing should not lock up the rear end. #2. Sounds like you have a far worse problem, probably in the differential. To replace the wheel bearing you need to remove the diff cover, take out the spider gear pin remove the locking c clip and remove the axle. Obviously the left rear wheel and rotor and caliper have to be removed as well. then the bearing ,which is pressed into the housing needs to be removed. If the bearing is that bad the axle will need to be replaced as well.

My drivers side rear tire locked up while driving in my 84 Nissan Datsun pulsar NC what's wrong


'84 ...*lotsa* miles on it ....like 450K plus if you drive the "normal" 15K/year. First, and most likely, thing that comes to mind is the wheel bearing has seized. Since this is a front wheel drive car, there are sealed roller bearings for the rear wheel hubs. At 450K on the odometer there are *lots* of components that have reached or exceeded their normal service life. I would suspect the left rear sealed wheel bearing is one of them ...followed closely by the right rear wheel bearing. If it's the bearing? Get them both done.

2001 caddilac deville dhs shakes when it goes over 60mph and makes thumping noise from rear passanger side when i brake


Check the U-joints this will give you a thumping sound by running
out of round. Banging on bottom of car.
The noise in the rear could be a bad wheel bearing, I had that
happen when the race of the bearing came apart.

Bad vibration in pasanger side front end


Have your wheels balanced. If it still happens, jack up the passanger side and move the wheel up and down. If u have up and down play then its probably the wheel bearing. Side to side can be the same thing, but can be the tie rod ends also.

The left rear tire locked up only when going forward


Hello, Most likely you have broken Emergency brake pads trapped inside the inner rear Rotor or drum. There is also a possibility that a rear wheel bearing has collapsed especially if you have heard a whining noise while driving.

Since the Sable is a Front-wheel drive vehicle, the rear wheels have few parts. This will not cost as much to fix. The rear rotor/drum will need to be removed and the defective parts replaced. The rear rotor/drum will probably be bad along with needing pads or bearings.

The other rear wheel should be checked for damage too. I hope my solution is helpful to you.

MODEL 2004 VENTURE CHEVROLET...HOW MUCJ IS A WHEEL BEARING


Wheel bearings are about 90-140 dollars depending on the brand you get whether Delco or other OEM. Make sure though that the wheel bearings you get are for the right spec of venture as they differ as to whether they are for rear and front wheels, whether yours is Front Wheel Drive or all wheel drive, with ABS or No ABS. I get mine from Rockauto. Their catalogue on-line lists all the different specs.
