SOURCE: Rear Wheel bearing needs to be replaced

the bearing has to be pressed in, quite the job even doing it at the shop- you will have to have some sort of press to press the bearing in.

The type of noise you report is consistent with wheel bearing failure. It is VERY difficult to determine failure simply by lifting wheel, and sensing play or roughness upon rotation. My experience tells me that bearing start to fail with a high pitch noise ( no play) and at later stages with a deeper rumble, and a tad of wheel play. From start of failure, to absolute disaster, like losing munitions / bearings, it might take like a 1000 miles or more. At earlier stages bearings will howl only when provoked, and will stop whining if you add more weight, or take off weight from them, such as in turns or heavy breaking.

1995 Ford Ranger whines. Three mech's, fuel pump, carrier bearings, wheel bearings. Who is closest?


You need to post the symptoms of your problem. And let us tell you what we think. But for what its worth here I go. Electric fuel pumps howl or moan. Carrier bearings on make noise when vehicle is moving down the road and make a squalling noise when the bearing is going bad but may be interpreted as a whine. Wheel bearings near the same as carrier bearings but they usually grind. So my guess is alternator or pulley bearing since they whine.

2002 Ford Escape 2WD. No drive on passenger wheel.


the reason you could do that was because it does not have positraction in the differential and it is designed that way for when you take turns so each axle can spin at a different speed. and the ginding noise with the brakes can be misinstalled hardware or a warped rotor.

Rear end making l;oud noise when driving


If you are getting a thunking noise, your rear u-joint is probably due for replacement. If it is more of a whining/grinding noise, you re looking at replacing wheel bearings, carrier bearings, or pinion bearings.

Transmission or rearend


IF its whining noise then first check the transmission fluid in the rear axle if its 4X4 truck ,if its not 4X4 then check the brakes or the wheel is making contact to any metal part ....

Good luck....

Hearing growling whine sound from passenger side front. Growling produces fast vibration (not shimmy). Sound increases on left hand turns. Sound more pronounced below 60 mph.


You need to replace your wheel bearing. Ford Escape bearings usually need changed around 80,000+ miles from my experience.

2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.


Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
