Question about 1999 Suzuki Swift
Hi ruby ?? now we have a good idea as to what is the problem thanks to your description on noise ! this sounds very much from what you describe that it is front wheel bearing on its way out /worne the bearing fits inside the hub assy either offside front or nearside front the actual driveshafts run inside these bearings cv joints as they are known not uncommon fault on many front wheel drive cars however it depends on which side you suspect the noise/droning is coming from?? you can try listening with a passenger to pin point ? or you could jack each front wheel in turn and rotate wheel also try rocking/tilt wheel top and bottom to feel for any undue movement ? there should be none if ok this is not an expensive job to repair howeveri would suggest you shop round motor supermarts or shops for price of new bearing 1st not dealerships! if you have haynes manual it will describe the proceedure for doing this job normally 1 hr to change a little longer if you have a friend ?? who could do it for you saving££££s in garage costs ?labour charges are costly try this ? whilst driving on a quiet road if you move steering right and left you may find droning sound more on one side? or may disappear either on right steer or left? this may help in verifying rogue/worne bearing to you ?? for your info i know that cost of one of thee bearings on a cleo 94 year cost £18 very similar to size on yours ? hope this helps ? ps whilstyou are checking wheels as above ? yu might as whel check the b/pads wear/thickness just in case you may need to replace them too whilst doing bearings for peace of mind for future and mot ? not aware of your location so as to offer places/stores/motor factors to try /price up parts ? obviously trade is less so wish you luck and hope all above is lear enough for you to understand come back if you req more info/assistance ?
