Question about 2006 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

I need to replace both front bearings on my jeep. I was quaoted $1200 for the job, that number sounds a little crazy to me. I know the bearing comes in an all in one hub, but what does BRG stand for? Is that only for the rear? How difficult is it to do myself? I figure since it comes as a hub it should be easier.

I suggest that you get a second estimate, from an independent shop. BRG usually means bearing. Usually bearing work takes special tools and torques....

The front driveshaft in my 1992 jeep cherokee laredo has a lot of play in it.i have been told the pinion bearing and seal need to be replaced.can this be done without removing the whole differential or...

I would not just replace the outer pinion bearing if there is play there. Problem is as the bearing fails, it generates fine metal debris that travels back to the inner bearing and damages that one as well. since both need to be replaced, the carrier needs to be removed and it is wise to replace both carrier side bearings. The entire job requires precision measurements and a lot of experience reading gear patterns so it's not really a job for doing at home and not even for anyone in the trade unless they have done gear setups with good results many times before.
Good news is that there are plenty of used units available in scrapyards and the unit cost end to end is less than the cost of the bearing sets. If you have a manual (chilton or haynes are fine) and a decent basic tool set, that job can be done at home with few problems. It is mandatory to match the gear ratio exactly though or you will have an immediate and catastrophic failure.(yours should have a tag on one of the cover bolts or you can count the ring gear and pinion gear teeth.) divide ring # by pinion number and that's the ratio. (example: if you get a number of 3.23 the ratio is 3.23 to 1)

I have a 2001 Mercury Marquette. I took it to the Mercury dealer where I bought the car for a general check up. The mechanic said my front wheel ball bearings needed to be replaced. I just passed 39K...

First with only 39K get a second opinion, sounds a little fishy to me. If they are bad here is what a dealer should charge you per side $513, but if you go to an independant shop it would around $236 per side. The dealer marks there parts up like crazy, an independant shop like me doesn`t. The parts are just as good.Hope this helps.

Please take a moment to rate my answer......Thanks

It sounds like it is the throw out bearing. From your description of the vehicle not pulling its weight, it is going to need a clutch. The throw out bearing will come in most clutch kits, so when you replace the clutch you can replace the throw out bearing, pressure plate, and pilot bushing.

Front differential bearings need replacing

No they will need replaced. But it should in no way cost that much. You should be able to get both replaced for about 500-600

Jeep Liberty Clicking Noise

This could be one of a few things, check the seals on your cv boots, If a cv joint has grit inside it can create this problematic sound you have listed here, If the sound is emminating from the cv joint(s) then the chances are that you will need replacement cv joints, these are mid priced But always purchase the best that you can afford if you are prepared to do the job yourself, a haynes manual will prove to be invaluable even for thee most mediocre home mechanic, if you are having a garage do the work then don't buy anything as will not fit parts that they have not sourced because if the part fails & you were seriously injured or worse you could sue them for negligence, if its not the cv boots then then it could be the wheel bearings & these could also be done at home, another thing to check is the fan, sounds strange but I have known cases where some thing (s) have got stuck to the blades of the fans & caused the sound you are explaining, Get A Haynes Manual, it is well worth the initial outlay of under 2o quid & if you do the work yourself It will pay for itself in the first couple of jobs, & nothing beats the achievement of working on your own vehicle & solving it's problems - with a little help from us!!

Noisy front axle/hub jeep grand cherokee

Had the same thing ... kept driving for a while. Turned out to be the front left wheel bearing causing the problem but I waited too long ... I was driving on the highway when it failed ... ended up blowing the front diff seal and damaged the diff gears ... .. the damage was mainly caused by the high rate of speed ... Suggest you get the wheel bearing checked ASAP ... My bill ended up being $1200 fro all the repairs ...
