Hello, You may have damaged a bearing if you discovered the seals were leaking it may have dropped the axle lube too low to protect the bearings. When you were removing the wheel seal, you must have exposed the rear Emergency brakes on the 1 side you replaced the wheel seal on. You should have observed the condition of the part. The other wheel may have the Emergency brake dragging and making the noise you continue to hear.

A lot of times the lining from the E brakes will separate and fall into the drum/rotor. Then it will jam or grind until it is dust. While you worked on the differential was the driveshaft inspected for bad u-joints? Check the drive shaft joints while you are under the car.

You still may have a bad bearing on the opposite wheel you worked on. You may need to put the car on a lift and have a helper put it in gear. Be careful for long hair, loose clothes, etc and you can just take it easy on the speed you run it at.

1999 Lexus RX300 left rear wheel has a rumbling noise sounds like cv joint or bearing its all wheel drive.


Spin that wheel by hand as fast as you can. If you can hear the noise coming from right behind the tire it's probably a wheel bearing.

The rear wheel bearings on my 1998 Honda Civic Aerodeck are rumbling and I need to know how to replace them or regrease and is it a DIY or garage job


Your vehicle is equipped with sealed bearings that are pressed into the hub assembly. If your rear wheel bearings are making noise, you must replace the entire bearing and hub assembly (they cannot be greased).

To replace it, raise and support the vehicle and remove the tire and wheel assembly. Remove the brake drum. Remove the bearing cap, the spring nut and the axle washer. Remove the hub assembly and hub seal. The new hub assembly should come with a new hub seal installed. (See first picture below)

TIP: The brake drum has threaded holes in its face where an 8mm bolt can be inserted to help "push" the drum off of the hub assembly - they can get really stuck. (See second picture below)

I need to change the real seal in my 94 S10 blazer and i don't know what I have to do! please help?


Hello wizardofoz17: My name is Roger and I will help you. By replacement of the rear seal I assume you mean the rear main seal of the motor. To replace this seal you will need to remove the transmission from the vehicle. Should this vehicle be a four wheel drive then you will also remove the transfer case as well.Remove the flywheel from the engine. Remove the seal from the crankshaft and install the new seal. Reverse the procedure and reassemble the drive train.
Should you be asking about the rear pinion seal of the rear end then please just ask and I will be glad to give you the information. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

BEARING NOISE IN FRONT END RT SIDE DODGE SUV DORANGO COULD IT BE CV JOINTS OR BEARING IN FRONT HUMS


Most likely it is the RH front wheel bearings. CV Joints don't usually make any noise until you turn a rather sharp corner. I would advise you to replace the bearings and seals in both front wheels if the bearings are in fact noisy. Jack up the front and spin each wheel, you'll soon hear the sound of rumbling bearings.

2001 and 2002 jeep grand cherokee. while making hard left hand turn experience rumbling sound doesnt happen when driving straight or right turns. Cant decide if sound is from front or rear area


Try checking the bearing in the left wheel if the rumbling is on the left side. Sometimes bearings can be worn down and sometimes may even twist or bend.

Sounds to me like a wheel bearing is going out, get the wheel checked out by a mechanic, and see if that is the problem, but it sounds to me like a bearing issue.

If it sounds like a rumble from back wheels it may be the rear end going out. Mine has been replaced twice with used rear end. You should be able to confirm it by looking at the rear tires both sides of tire for an oil leak or wet spot on tire or rim.

Front end Rumble Simalar to worn Ball joint Noise


the problem with your truck is your knuckle bearings. I just replaced them on a friends truck and it sounds like the same problem. Just look on the inside of the front hub close to where the front axel attaches to the hub. If the seal is gone you will have a ring inside the hub on the axel shaft.
