The front wheel bearing is a multi-piece hub type of bearing, and the hub assembly does have to be pressed back together if you want it re-assembled correctly, and I have seen people try and use a drift and hammer to replace that bearing and all that they managed to accomplish was to cause even more damage and had to also replace the hub flange. You can save a lot of money by removing the entire steering knuckle/hub assembly from the vehicle, and take it and a new bearing to a machine shop, and they will usually not charge very much to press that bearing for you, then all you have to do is simply replace the steering knuckle/hub assembly.

Well that price sucks for a simple task.. all bearings in the rotors are pressed in why is yours any different to deserve such a price ??? Its very simple to fix a backyard mechanic or a kid can do it..

  • jack up the car
  • remove wheel
  • remove center bolt holding the rotor in place (to the joint)
  • remove ball joint and other stuff like the caliper from the rotor.. basically what u want to do is remove everything connected to the rotor then remove the rotor..
  • take it to a machine shop together with the replacement bearing ( you did buy one right ?? !! )
  • tell them press out the old and in with the new one..
  • might cost a few bucks..
  • re assemble..
  • your done...
feel free for a backyard mechanic to do it..

You could save yourself some money by removing the spindle ***. yourself and having the bearing pressed at a machine shop, make sure you mark the position of the spindle to keep the alignment right

Roaring noise in front end of Monte Carlo 2001 the faster I go the faster it goes. Does not happen when I idle or rev the motor only when I'm driving?


A common problem with this generation of MC's is the ISS, or intermediate steering shaft. The shaft turns with the wheels and does exactly what you describe. If it isn't too far gone, a repair shop can do a lube job on it and some more parts on your front end to fix the symptom. If it is too far gone, you will need a new ISS.

There are other front end problems (power steering, wheel hubs, axles, brake rotors, etc.) that will cause similar noises and symptoms. If you aren't highly skilled and mechanically inclined, it is much better to just take the car into a repair shop for a diagnosis and/or estimate than to throw parts and labor at the general area. If somebody makes a bad judgement or two, the cost of replacing parts that do not eliminate the root cause will quickly add up to more than the cost of a proper repair. Not to mention the time involved. 25362372-awph1b3yhxdrnyqdcrsrelkr-5-0.jpg

Mechanic says my Focus LX 3 motor mounts need to be replaced, and gave me an estmate of $533. This has been my only mechanic for 4 years and I do trust him. Does $533. sound fair to you?


Look up the price of the mounts you want installed,
online or at parts store & guess at what you think
the labor should be

Why are you not installing them yourself,obviously
your concerned about something

I suspect you can't confront the shop to ask the proper
questions

You should be under the car before it come back onto the shop floor & an estimate given

I wouldn't authorize one thing untill I see proof,thus learn to do your
own work.

If you need an estimate, your not comfortable there, nor is the shop with you

Go else where & play stupid & get it on the lift & be shown the problem one more time

Front is making noise when I turn


Kim:

Check your wheel bearings and ball joints. Checking the wheel bearings: stand next to the front tire, crouch down, put your hands on the top of the tire, and try to rock the top of the tire by pushing the top of the tire away from you and pulling the top of the tire toward you (rock it hard and fast). do both front tires. Any noise or sideways movement of the tire is bad, (Bearings are worn) and needs to be repaired. Then, stand at the front corner of the car, and push down on the front corner of the car repeatedly (rocking the corner of the car up and down (Rock it up and down Hard) If you hear the popping noise your ball joints need to be replaced. If these tests don't work but you still get the popping noise when you drive, take the car to a mechanic. Popping noises from the front end of a car is dangerous. If anything happens up there, you could lose your steering!

Roaring in front end


this is caused by a defective wheel bearing, they can get really loud, any front end shop will road test this foree and give you an estimate to repair, I urge you to have this checked ASAP as uit can cause the wheel to break off the hub if the bearing freezes up.

It sounds like the CV joint, no they are not supposed to be loose, free to move but not loose like you describe, sort the CV then look at the wheel bearing as I imagine all the noises will disguise others

Is a ball bearing the same as a wheel bearing hub assy , I took my 2001 Dodge Dakota to a repair shop he replaced the front wheel bearing hub assy, when I took my truck home it started making a popping...


????? This vehicle should be equiped with tapered roller bearings. Ball bearinga are out dated and not used since the 60's. No on the hub assembly, The brgs go into the hub and are replaceable as a seperate part.. $ 500.00? This is a mechanic? Do this, jack up the front end of the vehicle and rotate the wheel to determine if there is a proble. Not ant rough or hanging up of ythe wheel while turning it. Then put one hannd on the top and one on the bottom and push and pull. You are now checking for loose bbearings. Any looseness or roughness is a call to have the wheel and hubs pulled and inspected. 500.00? He is trying to get rid of you by quoting an outrages price. If you accept the estimate he is all the more happier for ripping you off. Take it to another shop and say no more than " Please chk the front end and wheel brgs. DSay no more than that and leaave them to their work. They will call you when they need you. Ask for the old parts if you have them replace or repair.. My estimate. 20 to 30.00 in parts and shop time 1.5 hrs. A reputable shop will show you where,why,and how.the process works..

Wheel bearing replacement left front wheel Hello Everyone, I may need to replace the wheel bearing on my right front wheel of my Corolla wagon. How can I know for sure? And how can I find out how to do...


Diagnosing the bearings can be tricky depending on severity of wear. Typically - drone noise at highway speeds, squeeling, clicking or grinding noises at low speeds that reduce during braking, or pull off the wheel and brake assembly and check the bearing for slack or smoothness of rotation by hand. While doing this, check the brake assembly thoroughly - generally a more likely culprit of wheel noise.

Wheel bearing replacement is not for the novice backyard mech. - you will need pullers, press, etc. If you can get a rebuilt assembly - much easier.

Thumping at front passenger wheel area


if the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue then...so a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?

Wheel bearings, front & rear struts


In my humble opinion, I would say this is not normal wear and tear. If it were me I would get a 2nd opinion. I have been driving for over 40 years and I do not remember the last time I had to replace a wheel bearing. I'm not saying it can't happen but another opinion would be worth the nominal cost.

And if the answer is a strong "it's not needed" I would find another mechanic than the one that gave you the estimate

Hope this helps Loringh
