Question about 1999 Volvo V70
One or both of the front wheel bearings has gone and makes the usually noise but only intemittently, therefore it is difficult for my garage (not volvo dealer) to identify which one or if both are at fault. With the high cost of the parts involved I only want to change one if only one is faulty. Mechanic says as it is auto model it is not possible to spin wheel and check which one is at fault, so he wants to change both or take pot luck. Any ideas please. Thank you - ****
Thats an easy one mate. jack one side of the car up so one of the front driving wheels is off the ground. then run the engine in gear and your wheel which is lifted off the ground will turn. you can then check eachside individually. i thought your mechanic would know this, ask him why, or is it he just he wants to become rich with people like yourself who dont know these things? try finding either an honest mechanic or a one who knows more about cars !!!
