Depends on the vehicle and which bearings. Wheel bearings, not so expensive. Main bearings inside the engine, expensive.

The rear hatch can be replaced by another hatch from an 82 to 92 firebird or camaro.

This buzzing noise is likely a faulty wheel bearing. The bearings are moving around randomly and need to be replaced.

Check for proper bearing clearance. It is easy to get the wrong size bearings.

The hub bearings in a 1998 Z71 can not be repacked. The bearings are part of the hub, and the hub assembly will have to be replaced.

Because when you change the ignition in a firebird you have to use the same key and key lock that was on the original column. If you don

Wheel bearings it sounds like.You should go and have the alignment checked, have them check the bearings also. Some vehicles have greas-able bearings, other vehicles, you have to have the whole bearing replaced. Thanks for your help. I just had it looked at and it was bad tires. Glad that it was a simple fix!

One can look in the owners manual of the Craftsman mower to learn how to replace the spindle bearings. Another way the spindle bearings can be replaced is to take it to a lawnmower professional.

Yes, but I do not know of anywhere that they are sold.

The pitman arm is an important component in the steering mechanism of yourรŠ1989 Firebird. These can be replaced by a mechanic or by purchasing on at an auto parts retailer and doing it yourself.

Belt tensioner is weak. Needs to be replaced.

Either the pump bearings are bad or the ac clutch is going bad. The clutch can be replaced but the pump bearings are not generally cost effective to change.

You can't. The bearings and the hub are assembled as one and expected to last the life of the vehicle. When the hub/bearings do fail, the assembly is replaced as one unit.

Probably the front hub bearings. I've replaced mine four times. Sounds great after they're replaced, but eventually the hub bearings start whining again. I'm not sure what the root of the problem is, but I'm beginning to suspect it's a design defect.

there are only bearings on the rear axle of your vehicle and on the front of your vehicle the rear axle is made up of u joints which need to be replaced every 50000 miles to protect your vehicle from damage due to a warn out u joint

I will offer some info. Maybe not 100% accurate. I have had rear wheel bearings replaced on other vehicles. My wife drives a Lincoln LS now. She needs some work done on the rear end along the lines of wheel bearings. When I had my wheel bearings replaced. They had to pul the housing off the rear end. They had to pull the rear axles and drain all the fluids. There were shavings in the fluids. The first time. The dealer did all that and replaced my wheel bearings. New fluid in. One year later. The rear end was going out again. I took it to my mecanic. He told me the dealer should have pulled the axles and replced the bearings as there was still shavings in those bearings. So, he replaced the bearings and I never ever had bearing problems again. If they do not replace the bearings. You wil still have shavings in the axles bearings. I should have known the dealer would not do it right. You would think they would. But no. They did not. That is my story and I am sticking with it. Bill in Edmond Oklahoma

It needs replaced - bearings are out of it.

User Avatar

You can't. They are not serviceable. They are replaced as a hub/bearing assembly.

User Avatar

engine bearings failed . do not run engine until bearings have been replaced. (note) count the bearings that came out in the oil and compare that number to the number on your new bearings. any bearings left in the engine can become failed with other parts and harm the engine. Some times, magnets will placed into oil filters.
