Two weeks ago I had a grinding noise (even though I didnt feel any grinding) started to come from the front end. I showed it to the mechanic and he said that these are front bearings so he took the old bearings out and pressed the new ones in. Now another problem started after that which is driver side wheel is wobbling, between 60 and 65 mph my stearing starts to shake and it becomes worse when I apply brake at that speed and the grinding noise is still there and when ready to stop I hear grinding nosie in interval and also feel that on brake pedal too.
i took the car back to the mechanic and he said the hub is bad which I dont think is the case and he is also advising to change on of the rear bearing to get rid of the initial issue (grinding noise). He showed me the hub moving in uneven manner and the whole mechanism was pushing in and out like wheel is runng on uneven surface.
He used a manual press for the bearing job.
Please advise with all possibilities.
