How sure are you that it's a bearing? I thought I had a bad bearing in the back because I heard a lot of droning noise, but a tire change fixed the problem. I later noticed a lot of rattling, and steering play in the front wheels, but the problem is ball joints. Also, the stabilizer links were pretty crappy, and I lost one of my original ones on the highway. Those cost about $30 from a dealer and you can put them in yourself with two 14mm wrenches in about half an hour at most.

ES Lancer - vibration, dull grinding noise when turning right, even at low speeds. Intensifies as I approach 30+mph. Replaced CV Axle, Tie Rod End, Bearing, and Hub. No dice.


Turning right and having a loader noise, means the left/drivers side is bad. Turn right, more pressure on the left side. and vice versa.

How do I replace a front wheel bearing?


front wheel bearing is pressed into hub and has retaining clip on rear and then cv axle shaft comes through center and has a nut and keeper pin. Rule of thumb is to replace both front wheel bearings at same time. raise front of vehicle place on jackstands for safety remove front wheels remove brake calipers remove front rotors and cv axles remove steering hub assy from lower ball joint,tie rod end and struts take hub to shop and have bearing pressed out have new bearings pressed in reassemble front wheels in reverse order of disassembly.

Lancer vibrates at 90 to 100 ks at front at front left


bent rim, tires out of balance, worn cv axle, bad wheel bearing, warped brake rotor, bad tire. Change that wheel to the rear, and see if the vibration moves with the wheel. Depending on the vibration, could be a motor/transmisson mount.

Which is cheaper to fix,front or rear wheel bearing on 2005 trailblazer?


Front wheel bearings are expensive because they come as an entire hub assembly, but the labor isn't too bad, maybe 1 hour. The rear bearings are relatively cheap, but the labor to get to them is long. The axle has to come out, so that means the differential needs to be opened. The brakes have to be disassembled. Depending what kind of deal you can get a front hub assembly for, the rear bearings will probably cost you more.

When driving, the front end by the right wheel well sounds like I'm in a wind tunnel? What do you think might be causing the problem?


Probably the front hub is bad. Most new cars have an integral bearing in the hub (unlike the old taper bearings in cars of old). You have to replce the entire hub which usually has the speed sensor included. Can get them online at a reasonable price.

03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration


I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.

Replacing front wheel bearing


those are sealed units and are intergrated with the wheel rotor if the bearings are bad they must be replaced and those are dealer only items. labor for each side is about 1 hour for remove and install per side. unfortunately there are no aftermarket parts available just yet. hope this helps

Noisey front end


Change the tire. Your tires might be worping from the inside. I had the same problem. It might need an aligment too.
