Someone told me that they may have overtightened the nut that holds the bearing/ hub in place.
It would seem that my attempt to get them to fix, or partially pay for the bearing replacement would be an excercise in futility so I may just replace it myself.

I've done wheel bearings on older cars but I'm told that this bearing is actually a whole hub assembly that includes the ABS sensor. Can someone give me the "Coles Notes" condensed version of how to do it and what special tools may be required ?

Thanks...Hugh
same thing happened with mine, felt like vibration in the right wheel and some noise, ended up getting a front end allignment solved it good

I need to find a good used or new torque wrench in 1/2 " drive that is in ft lbs. I see the digital snap-on ones but I need to sell something in order to afford it and my first born doesn't want to leave the house. I think the click type work great.....Can I post this request in the For Sale Section?....
But first I need to count my spare coin, then convert it to U.*. ......heck, I've got $12.45 U.*. saved up.

Frank/Cathy...

I have Craftsman (sears brand) and now Husky (Home Depot brand) and have been very happy with them. All are the click type and are accurate after years of use.

I'm standing by if you need help.

Bill, for future reference, it'* very simple to figure out if it'* Frank or I posting. Look for any spelling errors. If you locate any, it'* Frank! :P And he'll admit it.

By the way, he'* done some work on the '95. Whoo hoo! Although he'* whining about some plastic thingy on the wheel bearing and says the world may come to an end now! What'* up with that?

Hey, when you noticed this problem, was there a noise associated with it? Over the last couple days, there has been a noise under my car under the front left side of my car. I'm all by myself here, so I don't have much help along the troubleshooting lines. it rattles kinda like a spray can when you spin it really fast. The ABS light is on as well.
