Is there a bearing or bushing on the shaft that the left axle slides onto on a 1999 Bonneville se?


i have been fooled by this one way to many times. when a wheel bearing or hub assesembly is making noise, it will sound like it is comming from the other side. i do not know why this is. but one test will prove if and which one. when growling noise occurs, notice, when turning left or right, does noise get louder and quieter as you turn? if so then it is wheel bearing. when turning left the right side will make more noise. when turning right the left side will make more noise. if always the same then, tires or transmission need addressing. the cv axle does not make a growling noise, unless front wheel drive car does not move, it makes a clicking or poping noise. sorry but at least you dont have to replace other axle

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Noise coming from the right front


a scrapping noise could be a pad wear sensor witch would be time for new front brake pads a growling noise at faster speeds might be a bad wheel bearing that noise might change a bit if you swayed back and forth down the road

1999 ford explorer limited whining noise in front end


Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

93 ford festiva front end growling and scrapeing noises. sometimes jerks to one side. brakes apear ok. speedometer made these same noises pryer to going out. could it posible be from speedo cable. or out...


Sounds like the CV joint is shot - this is a front-wheel drive car, right. The side that it jumps to has a bad CV bearing that needs to be replaced would be my bet.

My 04 ford explorer is making a loud humming noise when driving. The noise is coming from front and gets louder the faster you drive.


Try to rotate the tires to rule that out.If not then it sounds like the wheel bearing is going out, on some cars you can replace the bearings on others youi have to replace the hub assembly

How do i check if cv joints are worn i have a noise in the front end sounds like a rock in the tread but isnt


If the noise is there when making sharp turns check for torn boots on the cv joints,or evidence of grease around the boot. This will be the bad one. MOST COMMON on the explorer is the hub bearing assy.Where the joint goes into. They make a variety of noises from clicks to growling while driving . Fairly easy to change.
