Front Right side noise after wheel hub replacement OBQ SKF BEARING!)  Topic is solved

Post by Fiodor » Fri May 24, 2019 11:14 am

Hello,

After replacing my wheel hubs on both front wheels I now have a low tone noise coming from the right that turns into a high pitched noise when I take a very hard turn to the left.
Any ideas ?

Thanks for your help !

From that description it sounds like a bad hub bearing on the right. What's the bearing source?

Did you check and make sure nothing is stuck, for example behind the brake pads?

It's an SKF bearing.
We didn't find anything behind the brake pads

Hmmmm also are you sure the axle is seated all the way in the hub? Though you never know of course, SKF should be good.

A swap may help diagnose OR clear the issue. Wheel alignment is a good idea.

Well it sure took a hell of a time but it eventually got fixed.
It was a bad wheel hub out of the box...
