Wheel bearing/hub

1584 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  danielelee
For the past month or so I've been hearing a hum/growl coming from the front drivers side wheel and the pitch of the noise changes when I turn. I rotated my
tires today and couldn't feel any play. I did some research and it appears that the wheel bearing is bad. I'm thinking of buying a new hub assembly from a local
auto parts store, question is will I be able to remove the hub assembly myself? Are there special tools involved? I did the hubs on my girlfriends intrepid by
following this video Are Elantras similar? If not can someone point me to a tutorial on how to do it? Thanks.

I just got mines done not that long ago youll have to
1. Remove wheel
2. Remove calipers & rotor
3. Remove knuckle two bolts on top connected to strut & remove the bolt connected to ball joint which is under the knuckle & remove tie rod connected to knuckle onces all thats done youll just need to take out wheel hub & wheel bearing. If im wrong someone can correct me im a noob


I try to help others

Well if you hear it loud is the sound coming loud of the driver side or the passenger put your Windows down n try to figure it or lift you vehicle up on a jack & then rock wheel side to side
