Hope your mechanic is right cos that is a costly job. Try calling around your local parts dealers, aka Autozone, Advance, Oreilly for prices on parts.

If it gets worse as you're turning right, but not left - Most definitely a wheel bearing on the right side. The right turn puts more stress on the right wheel - louder noise - turn left and release the stress - no noise. You can also lift the vehicle up on a jack and listen to the wheel and hear the bearing in the hub making noise.

Gringing nose left front wheel. i have replaced the break pads roters calabers springs and struts and hubs still have grinding nose


Is this a front wheel drive car? If so, the noise may well be from a CV joint coming apart. Given the extent of parts you have replaced, not much is left. Also might look to see if something is rubbing on a part of the rotating wheel / hub assembly.

Vibrating noise in the drivers side wheel when im going 55 on the highway and when i slow down


Hi If the noise is like a buzzing or huming noise the most likely cause is the wheel bearing.
But if you are feeling vibration through the steering wheel at 55 then as you increase speed the vibration goes then thats usually the wheels need balancing.
Also some noises can come from brakes which are rubbing or lots of brake dust on them.
Anyway i hope i have been of some help to you good luck

These are pressed in. You have to press the hub out first(center part), then there is a C clip that has to be removed to press the bearing out. If you don't have a 20 ton press take it to a shop. Costs about$30.00

How do I replace the front wheel bearings on a Mazda 626 1998


The front bearings on a mazda 626 are sealed and you must remove the entire hub assembly to have a shop or dealer install the bearings. The hardest part is you need to remove the center axel nut and it is very tight and is called a stake nut. If you do not have a fairly good amout of skill at repairs, this is one job that is safest left to the pros. Just one missed step can create more damage than you could beleive.

Noise from drivers side


hi how are you.there is a couple of things that will cause a rubbing sound.if it is a high pich sound then look at your dust cover behind your brake rotor.a low pich or a growling noise check your wheel bearing/hub assembly.with wheel off the ground wiggle it side to side and up and down you will have alot of play.or there is something hitting the tire.

Drivers side wheel bearing


When you buy the replacement wheel bearing it comes as a sealed unit. This is why they're called hub assemblies.
