Both front wheel bearings on my 2000 neon sang like canaries, so I took off the hub assemblies and took them in to a machine shop together with the new bearings and asked them to press the new ones in for me.
All went well, until I started driving - I immediately noticed a squeaking noise coming from the right front wheel that got faster as the car went faster, and disappeared when I pushed the brakes.
Had a look at the brake disc/rotor, and it seemed as though it was warped (although this sound was not there until after the new bearing).
So I got new Discs and pads for both sides, but the noise was still there. After driving about 450Km, the noise slightly intensified and when I drove slowly and hung out the window to look at the wheel, I noticed a definite wabble(?) Or warp in the rotation of the wheel.
But, no vibration while driving or applying brakes.
So, Could this be a hub that is warped? Possibly damaged when removing the old inner part of the bearing? Caliper maybe not properly installed?
I really love this car, and fixed just about everything else on it, so I would be grateful of any answers or opinions or help.
Thanks you guys
have the same problem?
