My Taurus has bearing noise at 160k + miles. When the wheel is turned
to the right the noise increases and dies out in a left turn, Am I
correct in believing the left, driver side, has the bad bearing?
If I replace the hub and sealed bearing, is it necessary to diconnect
the tie rod?
- this is a 99 model -
I had to do my '00 Sable front bearings at 145k .
Corrosion froze them in, had to pull out support and beat out the old
That requires disconnecting tie rod and lower ball joint. Lower ball joints
where worn also so the front end got new ball joints, sway bar links, quick
struts and the famous sway bar links. A almost complete rebuild.
Not a job for the minimal experienced.
Drives / rides like new again.
