Hi,

My car all of a sudden today started making a loud squeaking sound. I couldn't tell were exactly it was coming from except that the squeaking got more louder when I would turn the wheels. So decided to jack up the car and as soon as I did I heard the squeaking coming from the driver side front tire. So first thing that came to mind was to grab the wheel and move it up and down and side to side. I notice that there was play wen moving it up and down. There was some play side to side too and saw the control arm bushings are worn out too. Suspension wise I've done plenty of times so it'll be easy but wheel hub and bearing I've only done it once on my Lincoln zephyr all 4 wheels. It was a little challenging but I got some help thru this site and was able to finish it and get it done correctly. So here I am again asking if someone could instruct me on how to remove and replace the hub and bearing for the front and rear on.

Thank you,
Rob
