I took the car to Midas for a free inpection, it was the wheel
bearing. Also, they quoted 175.95 for the bearing and 70$ labour to
install it. Also, on my left side(front) a ball joint was needed, the
wheel gaved a bit when he pushed into it. He quoted me 152.25 on the
ball joint and 98.00 for labour. What is your opinion on thier
Also, I tookt he car apart to see it for myself and had a new wheel
bearing to replace, the front right wheel bearing is for sure
definately loose. I took off the axle nut and the wheeling bearing
retaining bolts (3 of them using a #55 Torque bit). Took off the
rotors and brakes pads, so its just the wheel hub (wheel bearing)
showing, I punched in the center of the drive axle so the wheel
bearing center is loose but I cant get the darn thing off. There are
no nuts in it, nothing to hold it back I think. Its really rusted,
Im not sure if the part is rusted together or soemthing. Is it common
for the wheeling bearing to rust to the part behind it.
Once I get it off, I should be able to put in the new one on no
problem, been tryiing for 4 hours already. Any ideas will help.
