Abs error codes 16


I'm sure the code indicates that your ABS sensor went out. It's located in the front wheel hub assembly, and to change it, you need to replace the entire front bearing/hub assembly. They are about $150 per. But it the truck is handling ok and you can deal with the light, it's not a big deal since it's just a sensor....

Front wheel bearing is knocking


to replace it: take off the wheel, brake caliper and brake pads. Then you will see the entire hub assembly. Since it's a sealed hub assembly, you can't just repack the bearings. The entire hub assembly needs to be replaced. It was like $90 when I did it on mine. Once you have the assembly off just replace it with the new one and put the calipers and pads back on and it should be good to go at that point.

Front driverside tire wobbling and very unstable lug tight


Check the wheel hub bearing, jack so the wheel is off the ground, if the wheel can be moved in any direction 360 degrees, then the bearing is bad. If the wheel will move by pulling up and down then it's the balljoint, just back and forth, it's ths tierod.

Replacing front wheel bearings on a 2004 Suburban


The front wheel bearings are sealed units, and must be replaced with the entire hub assembly. They do not need periodic cleaning/replacing as they did in the old days, if they are not making noise do not bother with them.

Replace front wheel bearings. The right front brake disc has a very slight wobble in it. My mechanic suggested replacing the front wheel bearings. How do I do it?


Its pretty simple.
1. take off wheel
2. take off brake caliper, caliper bracket, and rotor.
3. remove axle nut which secures axle into the bearing
4. should be 3 bolts on the flange which hold the whole wheel bearing/hub unit on.
5. reverse for reassembly

The wheel hub and bearing are all one assembly and are bout as a unit.

Side to side wheel play


It could be an indication of a bad wheel bearing assembly. Did you check the lug nuts to be sure they are tight? It could also be the tie rod assembly. I would take off the wheel and try to move the just the hub assembly. Do you hear any screeching/squealing noises? Any popping while you are driving? Are your tires wearing? All these are classic signs of a bad wheel bearing. Any decent tire/auto shop can put your car on a lift and check the wheel bearings.

92 buick front end wobble


if it is a belt in the tire, when you slide your hand over the tire you would feel a bulge that feels like a air bubble. if not than you need to have them check the wheel bearing and the power steering rack.
