You can replace the bearing only if there is no damage to the races. You will need to inspect these when you remove the hub and retaining nuts and bearings. The race is really not that expensive and I would replace the race at that same time I replaced the bearing. This however is not required. The race is the part the bearing makes contact with and maybe worn if the bearing has gone bad.

Nowadays, mechanics can change an assembly and pay only $55 to $75 or up for the whole hub assembly complete with the abs wheel speed sensor.

The assembly comes with a new bearing. Otherwise, special knowledge and tools are required to press a new bearing on to the old hub, which probably is rusty.

So, it makes sense to change the whole hub assembly when the bearing goes bad, and many times get a lifetime warranty on the part..

Good luck on this one.

What could be the problem when I hear grinding in the front end mostly when turning, Abs light is on, AWD lock light periodically flashes, and advtrac will not turn on?


possible a loose front wheel bearing or a failed front wheel bearing
the abs light sensor is probably touching the rotor
tack it back to the shop that did the job as there is a problem in the assembly of the unit.

What are the signs off front wheel bearing going?Would ABS and AWD lock come on?


Generally not, you will hear a low rumbling vibrational sound when you are driving. Sometimes when you accelerate your wheel will feel like it is moving up and down.
If your ABS and AWD lock lights come on, you need to get your vehicle looked at and diagnosed.

2003 Merc Mountaineer AWD Grinding coming from left front tire. Tires, brakes, rotors all less than a year old, could it be a hub/bearing assembly or something different? Thanks in advance.


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Looks like a wheel bearing issue. If the wheel bearing is worn out you can expect a grinding sound. Wheel bearing replacement is strongly recommended.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Depends I had a whole new used one put in for 1300...I had the front diff replaced 2x and the front driveshaft 2x a Drive shaft by shaftmaster is about 340. Some type of frame tweakage that throes it off. Always make sure you have the same tread on your Mountaineer if you have AWD.
