I am assuming that it is the right front??? If so, this must be done in a shop as the old bearings must be pressed out and the new ones pressed in by a hydraulic press only.

What does a crunch sound in the front right wheel mean?

Hi Cathy. It means something is worn out and going to fail. The most common cause is CV joints. Have them inspected. typically the right front is the issue. Other possibilities are wheel bearing, but the complaint is usually different, more a rumbling, than crunching.

Replace front wheel bearing 2009 Honda accord

Hello James.
I don't wish to insult you but replacing the front wheel bearing of a front wheel drive vehicle requires the sort of tool kit and skill level that if you need to ask how you do you do it you are unlikely to possess.

By the time a wheel bearing needs replacing it has been subjected to years of heat, cold and moisture and removing the bearing from the hub can be fraught with difficulties not covered by an average repair manual, difficulties which needs experience and equipment to overcome.
As if that isn't bad enough the work needed to clean and prepare the hub to accept the new bearing needs the realisation the assembly is a piece of precision equipment requiring very high standards if the replacement bearing is to have the best chance of returning a good life-span. This is also true of actually fitting the new bearing where if pressure isn't applied correctly it can be ruined in a second or have it's working life seriously shortened.

I suggest you ask an experienced someone else to fit the bearing this time while you observe.

How do I replace rotor on front right side of my 1997 accord?

You have the fun ones! What you will need to do is remove the knuckle from the vehicle. Remove the axel nut Rmove the caliper Unbolt the brake lines from the knuckle. Seperate the outer tie rod from the knuckle Seperate the upper ball joint from the knuckle Seperate the lower ball joint from the knuckle and remove knuckle from the vehicle. With the knuckle removed you can access the four bolts on the back side that secure the wheel bearing to the knuckle. Remove those for bolts and tap the wheel bearing out of the knuckle. You can then remove the four bolts that hold the rotor to the hub and then remove the rotor. Tip: replace the wheel bearing at the same time. You will probably ruin it when you move it from the knuckle. After reassembly make sure you tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do so will cause the bearing to fail! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

My 95 Honda accord lx made a pop sound from the front while I was driving, and now my car is shaking like crazy and my steering wheel is also wobbling, even when I'm rolling from releasing the break....

You need to take action immediately as this is a serious issue. It is important that you jack by the car and check on both the left and right side suspension and steering sections. It is possible that a link of the suspension has come off. Check the balance rod, the shockabsorbers, the lower arm, the steering links, ball joints and the struts. You must not drive the car unless this is repaired.

I had the same problem. You can get a new wheel bearing for about $50 (if I remember right) from Advance or some similar auto parts store. Mine was seized up and had to be cut off.

Changed the front brakes on 1997 honda accord because rotors were warped. now after abut 15 minutes of driving rotors are extremely hot. could this be a bearing issue?

Did you cut the rotors or replace them? If you cut them, they are probably too thin. If you replaced them, check their thickness with a micrometer. Rotors will overheat from being too thin.
