My 1997 GMC jimmy is making a loud noise it seems to be coming from the passenger side front tire I check the hub it spinng good


If the problem is at the wheel, two possible causes are a bad wheel bearing or worn brake pads. Both of these noises will only be experienced with the vehicle on the ground and moving. Also, if this is a FWD truck and it only occurs when accelerating, it can also be caused by a failing drive axle or bad transfer case bearing.

Mazda 323/Protege front wheel bearing


The moment you can hear a loud noise coming from front wheels while driving straight that means that your wheel bearings are ready for replacement. In a Mazda 323 BJ (1999-2004) it usually comes every 150-200 thousand kilometers (95-120k miles). To replace the bearing (do two of them in one go even if only one can be heard) you need to do as follows:
Loosen the nut on the half shaft, jack up the car, remove the wheel, dismantle brake caliper and brake disc, remove all ball joints attached to the hub, detach the shock absorber from the hub (no need of removing it completely), once you have the hub basically hanging on the half shaft, untie the nut and pull the hub out of the shaft so you can hold it in your hands. You will need to go to a garage with a 12ton (minimum) press, no point of trying to hammer the bearing out as you may damage the hub and your whole work will be for nothing. Get the old bearing pressed out and the new one pressed in.The Mazda part numbers for the front bearing kit are: B455-33-047A(B,D),GJ21-33-042B,G304-33-065,B21M-33-048.
After getting the bearing fitted into the hub, all we need is to reverse the whole process, put the shaft into the hub, attached the hub to the shock absorber (makes it easier to attach the rest), put the nut and tight it just as much to feel there is nearly no movement (do not overtight it as this might damage the bearing), attach all ball joints back to the hub. Make sure all nuts are tight, use a
tension wrench when needed, put the brake disc back on the hub, install the brake caliper, once you have all them on and tight put on the wheel, then get someone to press the brake while you tight the shaft nut with the tension wrench, check the wheel for play or hard movement. Lower the car down and take a slow drive around (do not accelerate sharply or brake rapidly, just a gentle drive around. Normally a wheel bearing should be in correct position and use after about 200km (120 miles) distance. After that check if it is not overheating (too tight) or there is a play (too loose). Tight or untight if necessary, recheck after same 200km (120 miles).

Wheel bearing retaining ring..


Unless you know how to fix this failure I would suggest that you have it taken to a reputable shop and have the bearings investigated as it may also include a hub as well. CV joints seldom come apart unless the whole wheel and hub falls off so I would be in favour of a hub damage and wheel bearings.

How can you tell if the front hub assembley needs changed. There is a loud noise that gets louder as you pick up speed. I was told it was the front wheel bearing but there is no wheel bearing just the...


There is a wheel bearing inside the hub as well. They will sell those bearings I've bought them before. Chances are you need to talk to a better parts guy. You can tell if it's a wheel bearing by taking the vehicle up to a speed where the noise is clearly audible. Then swerve the vehicle back and forth in your lane. If the sound changes or goes away when you swerve, it's a wheel bearing. Obviously we're not trying to crash the vehicle here, so don't get over aggressive with the swerving.

How to change wheel bearings on a 96 cavalier


The wheel bearings on your car is contained in a sealed wheel hub. You have to change the whole hub to change the bearing. Remove the wheel, the brake caliper, the rotor. There will be three bolts holding the hub on from the back. You will need to remove these bolts and slide the hub off of the spindle. then grease the spindle slide on your new hub and bolt everything back together.

Vibrating noice when step on gas


You need to have the front hubs (wheel bearings) checked. You can drive it to where it is making the noise then gently steer back and forth, shifting the weight of the vehicle. If you notice the noise change, louder, or less loud then you have a wheel bearing going out. It will need to be replaced ASAP because it can be a real safety issue. Good Luck

Hub assembly and wheel bearings problem


Plan on spending more than $75 on this repair I am quite shore that that wont evan cover the parts. It definitely has a wheel bearing in the case of this vehicle it can only be replaced as an assembly that includes the hub. The ABS wheel speed senser is often sold as part of the assembly or in some cases is sold separately. good chance it will need to be replaced. Get the job done as soon as possible this is a very unsafe condition Your wheel will fall off while driving eventually if not repaired
