Yes, all wheels run on wheel bearings.

The noise could be a worn or damaged bearing, rust on the brake drum or disk, sticking parking brake, or under-inflated tires. Many garages will do a free brake inspection and they should show you and explain the problem they find if any.

Axles have ball bearings pressed on them and grease would be leaking from them if bad. Shocks can be noisy if you have unusual tire wear, cupping. Loose U-joint can be checked if you have the knick knick sound. Of course a dry axle housing causes a lot of noise and broke teeth can stop you from moving. If you suspect it pull inspection cover and see if there is a lot of loose metal pieces in the grease. It isn't unusual to break a gear tooth in the axle. Especially if you heavy trailer a lot.

yes.. To my knowledge the rear wheel bearings are lubricated with the differential gear lube as you drive.

There are many different bearings. Need to know the year, make, model, front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, all wheel drive and if it is the front or rear wheel bearing.

Either a transverse engine for front wheel drive cars (and the occasional rear engine, rear wheel drive car), or a longitudinal engine for front/mid-engine, rear wheel drive cars.

It depends on what model of car. There is a different proceedure for front wheel drive compared to rear wheel drive and a different proceedure for front and rear bearings.

Rear wheel drive the gear lube in the center also does the bearings. Front wheel drive the back wheels can either be greased as you would a front wheel bearing or they may be a sealed bearing that can't be greased.

how can you replace fron wheel bearings on a 2002 suzuki xl7 4 wheel drive

User Avatar

No, not feasibly. Front wheel drive cars typically have a transverse engine (as opposed to a longitudinal engine found in rear wheel drive cars) and a transmission with a different output location that that found on a rear wheel drive car... I won't say such a conversion is impossible, but it's highly impractical.

Rear wheel drive. A chain drive connected the gearbox to a solid rear axle with a pair of closely spaced 25 cm (10 in) rear wheels.
