I just posted about my car last week and you guys were wonderful. You're getting a donation the SECOND I get back on my feet from paying for my car.

While it was in the shop, the mechanic noticed a sound when he drove it. It was diagnosed as my rear wheel bearings.

If it wasn't a guy my dad had known for years, he wouldn't have let us take the car home. He says my rear wheel bearings are broken, and I can't drive the car.

My question is, how would I replace these? My dad wants to do them with me this weekend, instead of putting it back in the shop. Is this hard? What tools, etc would we need?

and looking at the forum, it looks like the Cirrus is sort of a problem car? That kind of scares me.
Do you

It was so simple after you had told me what to do, It's running great now and the humming from the bearing has stopped.
Now I've got to get back on my feet from paying for the car. Debt=evil.

I just had my water pump and timing belt replaced as well so I'm 600 in debt
