How do you replace spark plugs on a 2004 Sable - Taurus?
the bearing is one non-dissasemblable unit, it has to be pressed out and in. best done by someone who has the right tools.
Unfortunately,we have no way to show you or do drawings.
If a bearing is bad, You will hear a whining noise from the bad bearing. Try to listen if it is up front or back. The noise will get louder as you go faster. Turn left and right to determine what side the bad bearing is on. If you turn left and the noise gets louder, the right bearing is bad, turn right and the noise gets louder, the left bearing is bad.
The front wheel bearing on a 2001 Nissan Maxima is replaced by removing the wheel, prying off the bearing cover, and removing the retaining pin. The retaining nut can then be taken out, the calipers removed, and the rotor pulled to allow access to the bearing.
I had a bad right front wheel bearing on my 2004 ford ranger 4X4. When the mechanic took it for a ride he swore it was the left front wheel bearing that was bad but when he got it on the lift it turned out to be the right front.300 dollars for the part and 85 dollars for the labor plus tax.
It really isn't hard but to do it right get a manual on your car from AUTOBOOKSONINE.COM. It will help on the next repair also.
You must remove the spindle a get to the bearing .The bearing is pressed into the spindle,this is not an easy task, removing the spindle involves disconnecting or removing brakes,tie rod ,lower ball joint,ect
Worn left front wheel bearing.
More than likely you have a defective left front wheel bearing. Inspect the bearing and also inspect the bearing on the right front. Inspect your brake pads if this is not the problem.
This sounds like a bad wheel bearing if the noise is coming from the rear. If the noise is coming from the front and it is a front wheel drive car it has a bad CV joint. If it's a rear wheel drive and the noise is coming from the front you have a bad front wheel bearing. A choppy worn tire may also do the same, can't say I have heard a cv joint make that sound though. Need a little more info. Listen to the noise, and notice what direction you turn that makes the noise get louder and what direction gets quiter. If you turn right and it gets quieter, replace the left bearing. If it gets quieter turning left, replace the right. If it is a bearing, applying the brakes will make it slow down. Applying pressure to the rotor slows the tire and bearing and the pressure makes it stop moving as fast, so your noise will get lower. Some mechanics subscribe to this version: If you turn RIGHT (which shifts car weight to LEFT) and noise gets LOUDER, replace LEFT bearing. If you turn LEFT (which shifts car weight to RIGHT) and noise gets LOUDER, replace RIGHT bearing.
not easily or quietly
It sounds like you have more probalem than wheel bearing. TAke it to a front end shop
I have that problem right now. What I did was ascertain through hearing and feel that it was one of the front bearings. As a general rule--you never replace just one bearing. Either the two front or the two rear. Short of actually removing each bearing, this is your only option--unless you want to pay the bucks for a crackerjack mechanic; and if you do take bearings out--you never replace with the same old bearing--always new. Bad wheel bearings usually make noise. Try to listed to where the noise comes from.
Bad right front wheel bearing.
You have a failed front wheel bearing. Probably right side.
Brake pads wear indicator (replace brake pads)? Bad wheel bearing? Low tire?
Its your left wheel bearing. Turning right slows the left side making it quieter. Replace the left bearing and you will see. Not that hard to do. Just did it myself, same situation down to the direction and everything.
If a 1999 Infiniti G20 is shaking on the right front side it could be a bad wheel bearing. The rotor on that side may need to be replaced if the wheel bearing is not the problem.
2. front left and front right.
front caliber seized
a humming sound usually heard on cornering, if heard when going left, its the right bearing and vice versa
