SOURCE: Rear end noise from front wheel drive car

At that mileage it could be, and most likely is given your description of the noise. I assume it reduces in volume as you slow down. If you can find a quite piece of road drive up to where the noise is apparent and lightly swerve from left to right. (Don't roll the car!! ) If the noise reduces as you swerve left then its the left bearing. If its when you swerve right that the noise reduces its the right bearing. If its both the only way is to jack the rear up and spin the wheels as fast as you can and listen. If there's a hint of a rumble from it, its that bearing or both. It should be completely quite apart from the slight hiss as the shoes rub on the drum.
35K may not seem much but if you don't know the history of the car it could have hit a bad pot hole or even had a knock on a kerb.
I have replaced bearing with a lot less miles than yours.

Cheers John

My craftsman riding lawn mower won't move

Trans is shot. They cost around $600 to 1000 new. You can probably find one used for a couple hundred dollars. There are no rebuild kits for them. (Assuming this is not a zero turn) zero turns you can easily double the price....for each of the two drive units

Vibration between 25-35mph only in DRIVE (automatic)

U joints get worse as speed increases. You can try replacing the mount for the transmission it may help. Also check to see if the drive shaft is damaged.

How to change the drive belt

One assumes the reference here is to the timing belt running hidden under a cover on the passenger side of the engine and NOT one of the external belts that drive the alternator, AC pump and power steering pump.

The timing belt requires precision installation. Its typically a full day task for an experienced mechanic with air tools. Precision installation first requires precision removal and preparation. To access the timing belt remove the passenger front wheel and the center sections only of the wheel well liner that expose view to side of engine. Then loosen tensioner bolts on external belts and remove external belts from the center main drive sheave. They can hang on the remote drive sheaves if desired. Remove upper and lower external covers from timing belt. Using old cloth, wipe the back-wall of the timing enclosure clean of dust and check for oil or coolant leaks. Find yellow chalk or Yellow lumber marking crayon. Look very carefully with bright light for timing marks on anything that rotates and for corresponding mark. At TDC of cylinder 1 all observable marks should simultaneously align. Cylinder 1 is on the rear engine bank closest to passenger seat. Rotate engine manually with battery disconnected and ignition off until alignment of all marks observed. Only then do you release the tensioner and remove the old timing belt. While the timing belt is removed is an excellent time to replace the cooling water pump. There is no timing mark on the water pump, only on the sheaves that drive the camshafts and on the main drive sheave. Also no timing marks on the idler pulleys.

Once the new belt is installed with everything verified in proper alignment and new water pump installed too, the idler pulleys can be set and spring loaded. Then manually rotate the engine through one complete cycle until all marks aligned again. Check torque on all bolts, then start reassembly of timing belt shield first, then external belts and adjust tensioners. Reinstall center wheel well liner sections and then reinstall the wheel and torque the lug nuts.

Reconnect the battery and start the vehicle. If all properly aligned it will immediately start. If anything improperly aligned, you now have BIG problem and likely permanent engine damage. Alignment of the timing belt rollers and sheaves absolutely critical, one omission and the engine is toast. Do it right and enjoy another 60K miles before you have to change the Kia timing belt yet again.

I'm trying to replace the serpentine belt on a 2002 ford escort zx2 but i can't seem to locate tensioner pulley

It may be like this:

"I just installed a belt on a 1998 ZX2 and used the tension release tool from underneath the car (safely jacked up and blocked) You should remove the right front wheel and plastic splash shield from wheel well (10mm socket). Use the tensioner release tool from underneath and rotate it towards the rear of the engine until you meet the lower heater hose. At this point, have another person use a tire iron / long screw driver, etc. to jam the tensioner pulley in place in order to get another "bite" on the tensioner pulley center bolt (use 13MM socket on the tool) You should have the entire belt pre-routed except for the AC pulley. This is the easiest one to install the belt on once tension has been released. Check for any looseness on the other idler pulleys as well as component pulleys."

Good luck! (rate if useful!!)

My 2000 Bonnieville shakes between 45& 55 mph I have new tires balanced and rotated not the ball joints

Check for a damaged wheel rim- the wheel balancer should have detected this, but may have missed it.
Check for defective tyre- new tyres can have faults -rotate wheel while jacked off ground, look for bulges, lumps or tyre runout when rotated.
Check for looseness of tie rods and steering box etc.
Check wheel bearings are ok.
