If you have more than a 3 year warranty it is covered under warranty
if you are going to do the work yourself you need to remove the front road wheel
find the bolts that hold the caliper on and remove them
remove the caliper leaving the flexible brake line connected or you will have to bleed the brakes when you reconnect it
once the caliper is removed you have to remove the bearing cap in the centre of the rotor
remove the retaining split pin from the stub axle and remove the large nut that holds the wheel bearing
remove the bearings and the rotor, clean all grease off the rotor where the bearings are
use a drift and remove the inner bearing shells from the rotor by hitting them from behind with a hammer and the drift
place the new shells in position and gently tap them into position using a brass drift or a press
regrease the rotor hub with new grease, pack the bearing with grease and replace everthing in reverse order of removal
if you buy the new bearings from a bearing supplier you will save quite a few dollars as automotive spare parts dealers are usually a lot more expensive with their prices
Dont forget to put a new seal in the back of the rotor hub before you place the rotor on the stub axle
the seal can be bought from the bearing supplier as well

Possible vacuum leak from one of the hoses causing unmetered air to enter the engine. Look under hood in engine compartment and listen for noise to see if it may lead to a disconnected/collapsed hose resulting in a vacuum leak and repair/reconnect as necessary

I just had my 2007 Volvo S40 right front wheel bearing replaced. However, there is still a roaring noise coming from the front of the car when I turn the wheel to the right. My mechanic told me that...


Turning to the right changes the load on the left, but that
isn't the problem

The problem is poor diagnoses & failure to replace both
wheel bearings when one fails

After all-- they both have the same mileage on them

Humming noise from front right passenger side of chrysler 300, changed the tires and the noise is still there. any suggestions??


typical wheel bearing sound
when you drive, safely swerve on the road from left to right and again. when you swerve right the sound should attenuate when left it should be louder.

I have a 2004 corolla that has a humming noise in the front when turning to the right.replaced the right front wheel bearing and noise still there.any ideas?


It's most likely the left wheel bearing that's causing the noise, when turning to the right the weight of the car shifts to the left placing more load on the left wheel bearing and takes load off the right bearing.

Car steering


There could be numerous problems going wrong. Your car is rear wheel drive so it could very well be a bad wheel bearing. If it is extremely loose it can cause a shake in your steering wheel. You may want to check on the condition of your tires and rims especially the left front. A bad tire can cause a shake and pull. If you know how to use your car jack you can try jacking the vehicle up, and put both hands on your front wheel and move it manually to see if there is looseness. Most shops only charge about 1/2 hour to shake down the front end. BMW parts are expensive so be prepared!
