    didn't have remove axles or press out the bearings, just find the bolts.

Block front wheels and jack up rear slightly off the ground, keeping your body parts out of harms way you can grab and shake tires, if they move back and forth or in and out even slightly it is time for bearing work

Since you aready paid $400, go back to ;the shop and get your $'S worth!! Unless someone can prove that the axle bgs were bad, you shoulld ask why pinion & side gears were not diagonsed!!! (dosen't anyone test drive stuff after they "fix" something anymore??? Dosen't anyone give a damn???
If you can't get anywhere with this, find a junkyard unit and install it yourself. It isn't that hard. Just be sure that new lone has the same mount points and gear ratio matches ratio lof front axle.(count gear teeth if you must)

SOURCE: Noisy wheel bearing on 1999 JEEP GCL

Been at this for thirty years...never saw an oiling port on any differential! My honest opinion is .....baloney!!! Either the unit was installed incorrectly was a poor quality part to begin with or is defective. The part you need to replace is a sealed bearing hub assembly (including wheel flange) It's not difficult to install and the best part available from NAPA is about $160. (sealed bearings have no external source of lube, and are usually filled with a high quality silicone /synthetic lube at the factory)
This is what I fought against every day I was in business...it gives all techs a bad name and lowers the integrity of the industry.
Hope you have better success with it but really consider another shop!!!

SOURCE: noise from front end more so when you are turning

You also could have received a bad axle. Sometimes the rebuilds don't hold good tolerance and can make the same noise you are trying to get rid of. Is it full-time 4wd? Maybe the driveshaft ujoint also.

SOURCE: replace the rear wheel bearing

better check a manual, The ones I have done do not have c-clips in the diff. You remove 4 nuts behind the brake backing plate, then use a slide hammer to pull out the axle shafts. Then the bearing retainer must be removed (cut or drill into it, the crack it with a hammer blow from a chisel), it should slide off the axle. Then use a bearing splitter and a press to remove the bearing. To install use a long pipe and press to install the new bearing and retainer. Change the seal while your in there. Hope this helps.

Have a metal grinding noise when turning left only.


Replace the right side wheel bearing. But before you replace it. Listen to see if the noise is coming from the front or back. If you can't tell, Put some one in the back seat. Front bearings usually make noise. rear bearings, the noise can come and go.

2007 jeep compass 4wd light flashes overtemperature code after changing front wheel bearing


How tight did you make the nut holding the bearings onto the spindle? Did you change the bearing races too? Recheck the torque values to see if they are correct. an old race on a new bearing will cause temperature problems.

My car makes a bad growling noise. Everyone said that it was a front wheel bearing because that tire was worn down really bad on the outside. I replaced the passenger front wheel bearing, and it is still...


WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

2001 and 2002 jeep grand cherokee. while making hard left hand turn experience rumbling sound doesnt happen when driving straight or right turns. Cant decide if sound is from front or rear area


Try checking the bearing in the left wheel if the rumbling is on the left side. Sometimes bearings can be worn down and sometimes may even twist or bend.

When i make a left hand turn it makes a howling noise can't figure this one out


It is probably your right axle bearings. How fast are you going when you turn? When you turn left, the weight transfers to the right side and loads the axles. If you are on the smooth straight stretch of highway and gently turn left and right, but stay in your lane, does it do it? If so, it's bearings.

These Cherokees are prone to rear end problems. I have one!

Rear end noise from front wheel drive car


At that mileage it could be, and most likely is given your description of the noise. I assume it reduces in volume as you slow down. If you can find a quite piece of road drive up to where the noise is apparent and lightly swerve from left to right. (Don't roll the car!! ) If the noise reduces as you swerve left then its the left bearing. If its when you swerve right that the noise reduces its the right bearing. If its both the only way is to jack the rear up and spin the wheels as fast as you can and listen. If there's a hint of a rumble from it, its that bearing or both. It should be completely quite apart from the slight hiss as the shoes rub on the drum.
35K may not seem much but if you don't know the history of the car it could have hit a bad pot hole or even had a knock on a kerb.
I have replaced bearing with a lot less miles than yours.

Cheers John

Noise in front end, sounds like wheel bearings, 110,000 miles, rear end axles and bearings replaced, sounds still present, louder when making left turn when weight of vehicle shifts to front end right side


You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
