Wheel Bearing FAIL!!!

Post by Roadhog » Feb Fri 26, 2010 2:44 pm

I bet you have never seen one this bad... The wheel moves 1/4" each way... It never made any noise either! wtf...

BTW, this is the front wheel.

Watch the youtube video first...

The crap around the center of the wheel is from when I did the rear wheel bearings. :laughing:

Actually, I can, because the axle nut was finger tight. They really know how to tighten bolts... :banghead:

i noticed mine because of the epic loud squealing as my rotor scraped against my caliper. jacked up car to find it moved about an inch up and down. kinda scary, i drove 100 miles at 80 with it like that.

just watched your video again, looks week compared to the shit mines doing.
