HOW DO I CHANGE THE REAR WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 1993 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LARADO?

THE REAR WHEEL BEARINGS ARE MAKING A HOWLING NOISE WHEN TURNING SHARPLY TO THE RIGHT. I THINK THAT THE DIFFERENTIAL TOO TIGHT...OR THE BEARINGS ARE TOO TIGHT!!!

Pull the diff cover and check for metal. To remove the axles, look at the diff, there is a bolt to remove to get the center pin out. Then remove tires and push in on the axle. Remove the "C" clip that holds the axles in. Pull out the axles. To remove the diff, remove the four bolts on the carrier. Be careful as some diffs will fall out. On Jeeps there is an access hole to back the large nuts off the bearings. Just release on side. If you have bad bearings on the diff, you need to replace the pinion bearings also. When I do bearings on the rear axle, I do all of them, plus the seals.

No they are bad, unless its brakes
a real mech , checks both.
its one or the other, or worse. bad axle gear/bearings/

the fsm covers both. ever seen the real book? on this car.
the ZJ book is here and free

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
posted like 100+ times, now......

keep in mind jeeps may have different axles.
2wd, 4wd, and locking axles (options)
models 30, 35 and 44 so the details vary that is why the book wins here. the real book wins.

diagnosis is an other matter, i have an electronic stethoscope
that allows me to drive and hear each bearing. cost me $35.

id inspect brakes first. after all they are in clear easy view.
make sure the brake parts are not seized. that includes
the Emg. brake parts !!!
does you car have ABS brakes?
some have drums others have rear disc brakes, the linked FSM
covers both.

for example disc calipers can fail in many ways
guides seized.
pistion seized
emg brake part stuck.
cracked rotors, or warped.

so that be first a real brake inspection on side that makes noise.

if the brakes are ok, then axle bearings are checked next
if you feel radial play they are BAD.
and more. ask.

    can be bad emg. brake parts
    first look, touch feel, spin, listen...
    use all the senses. to find cause.
    or use a stethoscope to hear it spinning
    I grab the wheel and attempt to feel bearing play, (tire off ground)
    if feel any its bad bearings.
    spin it by hand, hear it> feel it?
    then see if brakes are causing noise.
    make sure shows or pads are retracted.
    silent now?

    and more, sharp to right, is left tire move farthest.
    if rear axles has Lim. slip Diff option
    those clutch packs can make noise
    mine did, and the cure is simple....
    drain and fill new gear lube. and add the lim slip diff additive (in jeep FSM its covered the additive... and necessary)_
    this ended the clutch pack chatter.
    I found this out with my remote electronic
    stethoscope.
    clamped to the carrier, it was real load
    and not at axle ends. easy peasy with $25 tools.

Have a metal grinding noise when turning left only.


Replace the right side wheel bearing. But before you replace it. Listen to see if the noise is coming from the front or back. If you can't tell, Put some one in the back seat. Front bearings usually make noise. rear bearings, the noise can come and go.

1998 dodge durango. howling noise differential.


time to pull the diff centre as the noise is from incorrect positioning of the crown wheel and pinion. This happens from failed pinion bearings or side carrier bearings.. Could be lack of oil or the wrong oil if it is a limited slip diff.

Turn whhel real sharp on 2005 ford explorer left rear wheel wants to lockundefined


If you have four wheel drive, turning the wheels sharply at a slow speed when in 4X4 mode can result in a wheel binding. The other possibilities are low lubricant in the rear differential, wrong lubricant in the rear differential if it has been replaced, or a bad differential.

My Honda 2004 CR-V develops a howling noise from the rear of the car after about 20 miles of driving. I have changed the rear differential fluid, and burnished the differential clutches per Honda Service...


A howling noise from a diff is an indication of the gear mesh( pinion to crown wheel) is not correct. Several reasons being worn pinion bearings--loss of preload on the pinion bearings --- crown wheel carrier bearings failing ---not sufficient preload on the bearings---wear on the teeth from incorrect diff oil in use. or simply wrong diff oil. The grade should be 80w90 OEP for normal or special oil for limited slip diffs.

Outlander howling noise in front wheels


with the wheel bearings failure , it is very possible that the "U" joint or cv joints for the front drive were damaged
I would be looking in that area especially as you mention on turning right

The front left wheel makes a howling sound at + 50 mph. When I turn the wheel right sharply, noise stops. Tires are new. This is a half ton Dodge Ram truck.Any suggestions?


wheel bearing is the most likely source of the noise ,and turning the wheel is transfering the weight off of the bearing hence the noise stops

Our 1999 ford taurus started making a load roaring or howling noise. We told that it was the power steering pump. We changed that ,but the roar is still there. It makes the noise at about 45mph. When...


Hi,It sounds like a noisey wheel bearing.you can check this by driving the car at 45 turn your steering wheel slighty to the left and back to the right.Listen for the howling noise to change,if it does you have one or both bad front wheel bearings.chances are thay both are bad.One's just louder than the other.if you are on a tight budget you can check them out by jacking your car up and put it on jack stands(safty first).Remove your wheels,brake pads and calipers,be sure to secure the calipers up out of the way.Remove the rotors.With everything out of the way now you can check the wheel bearings.You spin the wheel bearing slowly with the wheel stud this shuld turn smoothly,if you feel anything when turning it,then it is bad and it will need to be replaced.If you have any more questions just comment back and i'll answer. I hope this helps,if it does please rate my answer.Thank You for using fixya.....iluv2fish.........Ray.......

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.

2003 Chevy Blazer 4x4 making howling noise in front end.


as stated above, check the transfer case fluid level, also check the fluid in the front and rear differentials, make sure it is full and clean. if the howling still exists it can also be caused by hub bearings, or differential bearings.

HOWLING NOISES


Did you check your Transmission fluid and your differential fluids make sure there up and I don't know if you checked your rear wheel bearings or not, You can usually tell a wheel bearing when you are driving the car at highway speeds and you go around a corner and it get quite a bit louder Depending on what way you are turning if your turning right and it gets louder it will usually be the right side front or rear. the left usually the left front or back. some cases I have even heard Axles making a Howling Noise. Please let me know what you come up with. And Thanks in advance If I helped you out any. Bear001
