Get both front wheels of the ground. now spin each wheel and with one hand grab the strut coil spring. you will be able to feel the vibration. Compare both sides and you will be able to tell which one is bad.

Changing main bearing


No make or model or engine type provided, but generally speaking this is MAJOR repair work. It involves dismantling the engine, which is much easier to do with the engine removed from the vehicle.
Was this a recommendation or a suggested diagnosis? Was the car run without oil? Lack of lubrication will definitely burn up main bearings, but also rod bearings, cam bearings, and many other parts. If this is the diagnosis, better to replace the engine.

Would you bel able to cost frontwheel bearing Kia Sedona 2008


Autoparts Warehouse only sells the hub complete $107 each front side.

Autozone lists the bearing itself for $26

To have it done both sides would be much more $800-1500, depending on whether you use a dealer.

Given the bearing seems to be pressed in, I'd replace the hubs complete.

Remove axle shaft


Depends on make, model, and year, but in general with frontwheel drive or independent rear suspension, you just take off a ring of 6 hex or torex bolts on the inner side, and often a large nut on the outer side, and the axle comes right out with the CV joints.
With solid rear axle, the drum and flange come off to reveal a bearing retaining plate, that then allows the axle to be removed with a slide hammer.

Noises coming from th left frontwheel of my 2000 hyundia sonota could this be a hub and bearing noise


What kind of noises are you hearing? Most likely, you need to replace the brakes. It is very unusual for a 10 year old car to have wheel bearing problems, especially on the front wheels.

A squeal when you apply the brakes or a grinding/dragging noise while you are driving are signs that it is time to replace the brakes.

Need to replace frontwheel hub, but it won't come off, maybe frozen from the bad bearings.


Soak with penetrating oil or in severe cases you may need to heat the bearing housing/ steering knuckle area. This is often caused by disimilar metal corrosion or rust. good luck
