Not extremely hard just need the right tools for it and a manual.
This is a pretty involved job. You will need some specialized tools also.
\015\012It involves removing the rear axles.
\015\012The bearings and seals are at the end of the axle housing.
\015\012On a DIY scale of 1 - 10 (with 10 as the hardest) it's about a 6 if you are comfortable doing major automotive work.

I replaced the front wheel bearings recently, and just had the rear wheel bearings replaced. I'm getting a sound still which sounds like in the front, like a bearing. Could there be another bearing besides the front wheel bearings that could be causing the grinding bearing noise? Like near the transmission or gear shifter?

Had noise in the rear. Replaced wheel bearings but it still makes a whining noise around turns. Not sure what else it could be. Thought maybe one of the new bearings was bad but we replaced again and it still makes the same sound. Thought about power steering but the noise is coming from the rear for sure. Its all while wheel drive.

The passenger side rear wheel on my daughters '04 Focus has developed a whir. A sharp turn to the left unloads the right wheel and the whirring stops. Rotated the tires to eliminate a wheel and/or tire issue. A manual rotation of the wheel feels like an incremental stutter, which is different from the drivers side. I am assuming a wheel bearing. I can turn a wrench and have tools. My question is, does the replacement of the rear wheel bearing require special tools? Any assistance is greatly ap

I have a 2006 S40 Volvo that has just clicked over on 100,000 miles. It had never been to anyone other than the dealer for service but since it was out of warranty I took it to a local business that I am familiar with. They replaced a front wheel bearing but that didn't fix the problem and now they think it may be the rear wheel bearing on that same side but they have informed me that they can't get a rear wheel bearing because it is a dealer item? The noise is loudest at about 40-50 mph.


Looks like the rear bearing might be available in the aftermarket. If you have a local NAPA that would be your best bet.As far as diagnosing a wheel bearing it is not that hard to figure out but sometimes they can be a little tricky. I'm ... 2006 Volvo S40

The diagnostic tester indicates front left wheel bearing - always. But the gargae has replaced both front wheel bearings (with speed sensors) twice each. Also, the ABS control module was replaced, and the struts were replace, and we rotated the tires. All of this over ab

The rear of my Mazda 3 was making noise, so I narrowed the problem to the rear wheel bearings. After removing my Mazda's rear bearing hub assembly, I tried to carefully remove the plastic cover to expose the bearings. In the end the cover broke apart instead of pulling out. I went ahead and added more grease to the bearings, which fixed the noise, but for now I have used silicone to keep the cover in place. I have looked all over the internet and haven't been able to find a replacement to the c

We took our 05 equinox to the shop for rear wheel bearing replacements, the owner of the shop called and said the center carrier bearing was really really bad and he could replace it. We said ok to the agreed amount, he said he would have to take it to another shop to get it off but the shop couldn't do it and that he would have to order a new one and be delayed another day. Today he called and said we need a new drive shaft for $1100.00 as a result of the attempted carrier bearing replacement

My beetle makes a bearing / growling sound. I first thought it was the wheel bearings so I replace them. Next I replaced both half shafts with new CV joints. I still have the sound and think it must be coming from the ring and pinion or carrier bearings. Can the ring and pinion and carrier bearings be inspected without pulling the transmission?
