That sounds like the carrier bearing that goes to the axle. And yes it does need to be taken loose.

Good Luck.

How do you change the alternator on a 1991 acura integra

From my own experience, you have to remove the driver's side drive axle just to have enough clearance to remove the alternator. Then after you do that, remove the lower bracket for the alternator. THEN you can unbolt the upper bolt and take the offending beast out. Installation is the reverse of above. Have fun, could take anywhere from 4 hours to a whole day.

How do i get the driver side axle off?

Step by Step:

1. Remove tire
2. Remove cotter pin / lock bolt in lower ball joint
3. Remove Tie Rod End nut.
4. with a 32 mm socket removed large axle nut (air tools will most likely be required for this stage)
5. Seperate the tie rod end from knuckle
6. Seperate Lower Ball joint from knuckle
7. Pull knuckle back while pushing axle out of the bearing
8. Pull axle to the side so you have enough clearance to pull right out.
9. Pull axle out (will be stiff as there is a c-clip holding it into the transmission) take your time!. Sometimes a sticky axle can be freed from the transmission with some prying between axle and transmission.
10. Replace axle.(make sure axle is seated fully into the transmission)
11. Re install all nuts, and cotter pins.
12. Make sure you torque your axle nut to 90 ft lbs. (CRITICAL!!) - Too tight can cause premature bearing wear, Too lose and bearing could seperate, and possibly loose the tire while driving.

Removing the front axle

I am going to assume that this is the driver's side axle you are having problems with. If so, there is a tool that is required with a slide hammer to pull this axle from this transaxle. If it is the passenger side, there is a tool that is inserted through the transaxle after the driver's side axle is removed.

Front drivers side axle removal

There's not any special tools. You need a socket to fit the nut on the end of the axle and a wrench to take the nut and bolt off the bottom ball joint that slides through the control arm. Take a bar, pry down on lower control arm, pulling ball joint out, then pull the upper part out by hand, away from the car, slide axle out of the bearing assembly. Take a pry bar, put between trans and axle, give it a swift, quick ****. The axle should come out. Remember to always put jack stands under the car and be safe. Phil

Well the passenger side axle just slides right out when pulled on. But the drivers side(the shorter axle of the two) has a clip inside the diff that you have to take out in order to get the axle out. Pulling the diff out is very easy, disconnect the front driveshaft and there is a bolt on the left side of the diff you have to take out and then the front cover bolts.
hope that helps
