You shouldn't need the spring tool as long as you only remove the two lower bolts on the strut.

Grinding noise from front wheel 02 pt cruiser


john, this could be the bearings in the hub end of the short shaft, the brake rotor, or the brake pad. I own a 2001 and have had this problem. It was the rotor, I don't know why they treat brakes like they do but I changed both rotors, and changed the struts while I was there. Hope this helps.

2003 pt cruiser front driver side wheel bearing removal? How do I remove it?


the wheel bearing is pressed into the knuckle and will require a machine shop service to press it in and out.

You will need to remove the knuckle from the vehicle.

-Remove the caliper from the knuckle.
-Remove the rotor.
-Disconnect the ABS harness if equipped
-Remove the bolt that holds the lower ball joint to the knuckle and separate them.
-Remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle.
-Remove the axle nut and tap the drive axle out of the hub.
-Remove the two strut mounting bolts from the knuckle
-Remove the knuckle from the vehicle.

A machine shop or an automotive service facility should be able to press the old bearing out and press in the new bearing for you. Call around for pricing and service availability.

I want to replace the fron wheel bearing on a pt cruiser while it is on the car, can it be done?


Unfortunatly not, you are going to have to remove the entire shock strut or hub (preferably the shock strut to avoid having to do the wheel alignment...

It is not really a quick fix i would suggest you have it done by a technician who knows what he is doing and has the correct equipment, you will need a press for exaple to press the new bearing into the hub.

Hope this advicde can assist you in making a decision.

Instructions for installing 2001 gs430 struts type Monroe Sensi-Trac front & rear. What all has to be removed. Would this also be a good time to replace the wheel bearings at 160K or is repairs...


Be carefull , you will need spring compressor tools to do the job. The springs are compressed quite a bit and if you just undoo the top nut for the strut , you could kill yourself. Don't doo wheel bearings unless you know they are bad. Not sure about your lexus , but most modern cars have sealed bearings pressed in place.

Could be struts/mounts or sway bar links. If you replaced the front struts hopefully they replaced your mounts as well. If the struts were blown they may have damaged the bearings in the mounts.

How do I replace the rear wheel bearings on a 2007 PT cruiser... is the task standard or is there some caution to take heed of?


there's always caution to take heed of when performing maintenance. first you need to check if the bearing the pressed on cold or warm. to pull them off you'll need a special tool. if you've never done it, have a dealer do it.

How do you change the front wheel bearings on a pt cruiser


The front wheel bearing are located in the wheel hubs. You will have to take the hubs to a shop to have them pressed out and the new ones pressed back in. I would not recommend doing this yourself unless you have the proper tools and know what you are doing.
