Default Re: Right rear wheel squeak on left turns

hehe i've never even had time to take the tire off on my car only because i got it a few days ago hehe but if i'm already doing rotors/pads (should be in this weekend) is it just easier to do the bearings? I've got a few friends that are going to help me do it along with one of my friends dad, he's got some expierience doing rotors/pads on a truck. Also i'm not really sure on how to tell if the bearing is bad or not, but i figure it shouldn't be too hard once i finally get the wheel off. Thanks for any suggestions!

Dave

doing bearings are pretty easy...the only hard part is getting the rear wheel seal off if its been on there a while. its just a good idea to get seals and bearings together. Since you have to take off the caliper anyway itll save you the hassle later. When you do them make sure you pack thoes bearings tight with grease...good stuff not moly or lithium. the thicker the better!
when you put the nut back on, tighten it quite snug, then turn the rotor around 5 or 6 times. Then loosen it and tighten it about 2 or 3 time (snug again) then turn it some more until you dont hear anymore air rolling around in there. Once again loosen it and tighten it. You do not want to overtighten! loosely grab the nut with a pair of channel locks and turn it till the wrench slips off. or use your fingers to do it...but slipping off and smashing a knuckle isnt very pleasant..
good luck!

Ok cool thank you, any recomendations on where to get the seals/bearings? Are there performance ones and regular ones? or is just a bearing is a bearing? Thanks again!

really theres not any special high perforamance seals. if they have Viton seals get thoes...their supposed to last a real long time. as far as packing grease...just make sure its really heavy and high temp tolerant.
If they dont have viton...then get regular
Bearings are ususally bearings. most have a warrantee and etc. i guess its just depending on what brand you like most! before you get the bearings make sure it has a metal ring looking thing with it- called a race (sp?)...its the piece that the bearing runs on on the outside....lots of times if a bearing is bad, so is that.

IM havin the same problem. But its my Right Front Wheel. Almost sounds like the tire is rubbin. But not sure. And its only when i turn left. How hard is it to replace the bearing?

personally ive enver changes on on a 3s, but since its an import, theyre pretty much all the same. its not really that hard. you just have to remoce the 2 bolts holding the caliper on so that you can get the rotor off and pop the metal cap off the end of the hub and remove that nut...and there it is.

Advanced Auto wants (partsamerica.com - a respectable chain local to me)
$77.77 ea. for rear - made by BCA (brand i use most often)
$124.99 ea. for rear (no abs)- made by Beck/Arnley
$102.99 ea for rear - made by Chicago Rawhide (Best bearings ive used)

These are just example prices. im sure you can find these cheaper elsewhere.
*EDIT*
BTW...if you can get bearings w/o buying the whole hub...its a good idea, unless of course the hub race is damaged in any way.

Default **********

If someone else would like to chime in on this subject it would be nice. The factory repair manual is a little sketchy on the type of bearing the rear is. it appears though if its the more common of bearings....the needle bearing type. if you read the first few posts...you know what im talking about. The front bearing though is a sealed cartridge ball-bearing type..which are just taken out and new slipped back in.

But from what ive seen by SEARCHING for the bearings, you must buy the hub assembly..bummer i didnt know that, which greatly raises the cost
