Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a 2011 Rav4 AWD and I believe that the front passenger wheel bearing or hub assembly may be going bad cause of the roar it`s making. The part that causes me to be unsure is no play at all in the bearing. In, out, up, down, side to side, it`s feels tight to me and I`ve dealt with a few bearings but never any AWD so I was wondering if it`s was something else causing the roar I`m hearing?? Something in the AWD system since this is my first AWD so I`m very unfamiliar with that type of drive train. Open for conversation with hopes of solving my problem...........

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

You have to take the rear diff apart to pull the axle. I think you should inspect your u-joints by taking them apart. Some times they can fool you. And check that there is no play in the pinion when you have the driveshaft off.

You may have pulled the inner tri-pod joint out of the cv shaft and that will make noise. Is the bearing really bad? Does it turn freely?

it is most likely a bad wheel bearing, but it maybe the other side, some times the noise will carry threw the front end and make you think is the other side, we have a rule in my shop we never replace one wheel bearing we alwise replace both bearing on the end we are working on if the customer does not want that then we send them to another shop, the reason we do this is for just the thing you have going on it just saves allot of problems, and we never use cheep hubs, never use auto-zone or advanced or O'rileys, we had to warranty 12 hubs from auto zone in one year, i have never had to warranty a napa hub in 25 years, it just does not pay to save a few dollars. and all though it most likely is a wheel bearing there is a small chance it might be a carrier bearing in the front differential it would also go away when going around a corner but if you remove the wheel bearing and turn them by hand you can feal if the bearing has a bad spot. if the bearings feal good then pull the front differential.....GOOD LUCK
