BAD AXLE BEARING AND GRINDING NOISE

1991 Ford LTD • V8 2WD Automatic • 142,000 miles

1991 Ford LTD Crown Vic mileage: 142,000. I think I have a bad axle bearing on the driver's side rear. I heard a grinding noise and promptly parked the car. Do I need special tools to replace the bearing? Can I tell for sure the bearing is bad without removing it?

Special tools are required to replace the axle bearing. To tell for sure if the bearing is bad, you must remove the axle and examine the bearing.
