Do you need to have a special tool to change a front wheel bearing on a Kia Sportage 4x4


Any front drive car will be more complex to change a front wheel bearing than the old read-drive cars. It may indeed need a special tool.

2007 jeep compass 4wd light flashes overtemperature code after changing front wheel bearing


How tight did you make the nut holding the bearings onto the spindle? Did you change the bearing races too? Recheck the torque values to see if they are correct. an old race on a new bearing will cause temperature problems.

My 1991 cavalier is a 2.2ltr 4 cyl. 3spd auto, front wheel drive. when I drive it I hear from the right (passenger side) front tire a deep loping whirring sound....I am leaning towards the bearing or...


Deep growling sound could well be a bad wheel bearing. A bad cv joint will generally make a click or clacking sound, usually while only turning. While driving, you can often change the pitch of a bad wheel bearing with a slight turn of the steering wheel (note - slightly, no crazy zig-zag). What you're doing is shifting the weight on/off of this bearing and the pitch will change if it's bad. Only way to verify is to remove it and feel it in hand. It's a sealed hub/bearing assembly and only replaceable, not serviceable.

Change front wheel bearings


u will need to remove the brake cailper and the the brake rotor, then the hub retaining nut, that is a large metric nut, the bearing and hub must come off, then u will need to take this hub to a machine shop or the dealer and have the new bearing pressed in.
