Your bearing is a large sealed unit. The differential lube cannot reach it because there is an internal seal on the inboard end of the axle inside the differential housing.If you look at how it works you will see why. The bearing itself is big and tough but they do fail. Replacement unit is around $200 but generally you can get a good one from a scrapyard much cheaper.R&R is pretty simple if you have decent hand tools. Instructions can be found in both haynes and chilton manuals. If you get stuck on
any part, just ask and I'll help.

    Also, if the whining also happens when you bring up the rpm's when standing still, check the power steering pump. (also at L/F)
    The noise in the rear will require someone to look it over carefully on a lift and perhaps spray some wd 40 on all rubber bushings. If you do them one at a time and drive after each one is lubed, you may be able to figure out which was noisy.

There is a load wine when going around a right turn. Sound comes from the left side of the vehicle.


noises on turns can be from axle bearings ( most probable) or diff centre gears ( normally on turning in both directions)

Grinding noise in 2001 cavalier 2.2 engine replaced left front hub noise is still there. how difficult to replace left cv joint?


If you still think the noise is coming from the left side CV joint it would be more advisable to replace the entire axle as an assembly. For the time and effort it takes, you can usually get a rebuilt axle assembly for only a few dollars more than the CV joint and the boot required to repair one. You will need a large axle nut socket (usually 30 - 32mm) to remove the axle nut. The lower ball joint and tie rod will need to be separated along with the brake caliper and rotor, from the spindle. I would recheck the grinding noise before doing it. A lot of wheel bearings are mistakenly diagnosed to the wrong side. If the noise is loudest when turning left, most people would assume the left side wheel bearing is at fault. However if the noise is loudest turning left it indicates the right side wheel bearing is most likely at fault. Due to the weight distribution of the front end, turning left the weight all transfers to the right side, loading that bearing. Make sure thats not the case before tackling an axle.

Rear left wheel bearing is squeaking


Replacing a bearing requires pulling the axle so the old bearing can be forced off with a hydraulic ram and the new bearing installed. As with front bearings, the oil seals or O-rings must also be replaced so oil from the differential doesn't leak onto the rear brake linings. Be sure to check the oil level in the differential if the old seals have been leaking, and top off the level if low with the recommended gear oil. I provided you a link for this issue.

;eft frpmt wheel bearing noise - cost to repair or


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

POPPING AND CLICKING AND ROARING ON LEFT FRONT WHEEL


Well it sounds like your left front cv axle needs replaced,the boot sometimes gets ripped on the axle and flings all the grease out and when the joint gets dry it clicks.The only other thing that could do that is the left front wheel bearing so look and see if the axle boot is ripped if it is its the axle,if not it's probabley the wheel bearing that needs replaced.

Rear wheel bearing


Well, you picked a beauty to fix. I don't think that either a 2 or 4 wheel drive will make a difference. The biggest problem is that after you remove the axle from the car you need a special bearing removal tool, and a slide hammer to remove the bearing from the axle. Then you need a special bearing installation tool and a universal driver handle to install the new axle shaft bearing. And last, you need a axle pinion oil seal installation tool to install the oil seal. If you are not a skilled mechanic, I would suggest that you find a local reputable mechanic and let him do this repair for you.

Left-front wheel bearing is worn-out


the wheel bearing will need to be pressed on so unless you know someone to press it for you you might want to take it to a shop.

Noise in front end, sounds like wheel bearings, 110,000 miles, rear end axles and bearings replaced, sounds still present, louder when making left turn when weight of vehicle shifts to front end right side


You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
