2005 Toyota Corolla Q&A

2005 Toyota Corolla Question: Wheel Bearings

My 2005 Corolla with 150,000+ miles is making a loud rumbling noise. I think its the wheel bearings. Would this be the front or back? It sounds like the front when we are driving.....also, can someone pretty please give me step by step how to replace them myself?! I just don't have the extra cash right now to get them fixed in the shop. Thank you so much in advance!!! -
Answer 1
Best way that I have found to to determine whether it is the front or rear wheel bearings, is to use a stethoscope when the wheels are off the ground. Turn them and listen to each bearing. Here is a repair info info site that has the information that you need to help you remove the bearings: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online -
Answer 2
Mine did the same thing it was the rear wheel bearings. I jacked the car up and spun the wheel it made a roaring noise. the you tube has several videos on how to do this -
