While driving when you turn the wheel slightly to the right you hear a noise with some vibration. front tires and brakes are new. could this be cv joints or struts?


Need more info but sounds like power steering gearbox or cv joints. What happens when you turn all the way left or right? Is it worst or better and what do the noises sound like? Whining or grinding?

The 1996 Ford Explorer I bought used makes a droning sound like being in a small airplane when the vehicle is moving. It is gone when I turn or curve to the right and does not make the sound when the car...


Front wheel hub bearings are very common problems with this particular vehicle. Try jacking the vehicle with the front wheels off the ground. Check for excessive "play" as you wiggle the front wheels while holding the tire at the 9 & 3 o'clock position, then 12 & 6 o'clock position. If the movement detected is the same at both positions, replace the front wheel bearings.

Note: This test also allows you to check for worn tie rods and ball joints. Replace as needed. The droning sound points to bad bearings, though.

Where is a carrier bearing located on a 1999 suzuki swift car


hi ruby ?? now we have a good idea as to what is the problem thanks to your description on noise ! this sounds very much from what you describe that it is front wheel bearing on its way out /worne the bearing fits inside the hub assy either offside front or nearside front the actual driveshafts run inside these bearings cv joints as they are known not uncommon fault on many front wheel drive cars however it depends on which side you suspect the noise/droning is coming from?? you can try listening with a passenger to pin point ? or you could jack each front wheel in turn and rotate wheel also try rocking/tilt wheel top and bottom to feel for any undue movement ? there should be none if ok this is not an expensive job to repair howeveri would suggest you shop round motor supermarts or shops for price of new bearing 1st not dealerships! if you have haynes manual it will describe the proceedure for doing this job normally 1 hr to change a little longer if you have a friend ?? who could do it for you saving££££s in garage costs ?labour charges are costly try this ? whilst driving on a quiet road if you move steering right and left you may find droning sound more on one side? or may disappear either on right steer or left? this may help in verifying rogue/worne bearing to you ?? for your info i know that cost of one of thee bearings on a cleo 94 year cost £18 very similar to size on yours ? hope this helps ? ps whilstyou are checking wheels as above ? yu might as whel check the b/pads wear/thickness just in case you may need to replace them too whilst doing bearings for peace of mind for future and mot ? not aware of your location so as to offer places/stores/motor factors to try /price up parts ? obviously trade is less so wish you luck and hope all above is lear enough for you to understand come back if you req more info/assistance ?

How to check front bearings on 2000 kia sportage


hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps

Ball bearing and seal for a 2003 Focus


possibly a wheel beering...to diagnose a wheel beariing, listen closley when making left and right turns...when turning left, weight shifts to front right side, If noise increases, it may be a front right wheel bearing.... vice versa for right turns.
