SOURCE: 1999 mercury sable front wheel bearing

Not too bad. Just remove the Wheel and the Brake Calipers. Then remove the Dust Cap off the Center of the Rotor. Inside there is a Bolt with a Cotter Pin In it. Remove the Cotter Pin and the Bolt. The Rotor will now Slide off the Spindle, The Bearings are Loose and Probably inside the Rotor. Remove these Bearings and get a Tube of High Temp Grease. Put a Big gobb of grease in the Palm of your hand and Roll the Bearing around in your Hand. Be sure to use your Fingers on the Inside of the Bearings to get it in. The same Goes with New Bearings.

The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.

Here is a pic of the system.

SOURCE: how i can fix the wheel bearing of my mercury coug...

Buy Chilton or Haynes manual.
Break loose lug nuts. (One turn)
Lift car with jack.
Remove wheel.
Remove brake caliper and hang with something other than the brake line.
Remove brake rotor.
Remove large hub nut. Borrow socket from auto parts store.
Hub should slide off. A 2 jaw puller may be needed if it doesn't slide right off.
You are supposed to discard the hub nut and buy a new one. I always reuse mine...

After installing new hub, torque hub nut at 188-254 ft-lbs. (Which is a lot.)
Reinstall everything in reverse order.
Now is a good time to clean and lube the caliper slide pins and check the condition of the brake pads.
Torque lug nuts 85-105 ft-lbs.

SOURCE: Noise when making a slow speed tight turn.

noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.

I have a 1947 Mercury with a 1951 engine, the clutch will not disengage.

probably will find that the throw out arm is not adjusted to bring the throw our bearing close to the pressure plate fingers ( assuming that every thing else is correct). The pivot ball for the arm is adjustable in the bell housing to take up so much slack. Other than that the clutch plate is not being released or the clutch plate is in back to front and the hub is hitting on the flywheel bolts.

Makes noise when engine turned and clutch out. When clutch engages noise stops. Pressure Plate? Fly Wheel? whole clutch?....How expensive?

Sounds like a throw out bearing going bad. This can be replaced without having to replace the clutch and pressure plate, however I would never reccomend it. Normally when you have a malfunctioning clutch component, you replace them all. The best solution here is to replace the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and pilot bearing. You can usually get this as a kit. While you have the transmission down and the clutch removed, make sure to take the flywheel to a machine shop and have it resurfaced. Good luck! Any other questions let me know

HI, I own a 1997 Toyota Rav 4 4 wheel drive 4 cyl, the other day it started to make this loud noise coming from the front sounds like a grinding noise, when you put the clutch in the sound goes away any...

it sounds like it is either your clutch or the throw out bearing. either way you more than likely need to have to install a complete clutch kit (pressure plate, clutch disc, throw out bearing, and have your flywheel resurfaced.

Roaring noise in front wheels on 1999 Mercury Cougar, sounds like tires. I purchased a new set of tires and still have noise. Noise is while driving and turning left, quiet when turn right.

That description indicates wheel bearings, replace all 4 in the front end of your cougar.
I suspect that the right front bearings have failed in the STATIONARY race, at the top of the bearing.
