Wheel Bearing Kit + Headache

Recommended Posts

Ok recently i have been getting annoyed with a horrible sound from my focus :(

i took it to National Tyres (NEVER AGAIN!!!) and they say its the Drivers shaft and Wheel Bearings and quoted £450... i priced it all up at Eurocp and 132 for the parts at this point cowboy national tyres can do one.

me being me a money saving !Removed! thought ok lets take it to Kwik fit who diagnosed it with it just being the Wheel bearings... GOOD perfect ok i will buy this kit then from EuroCP.

a mechanic that was reccomended to me from my mum now says that the SNR bearings are crap and not worth the pennies. http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Ford_Focus_1.6_2002/p/car-parts/car-transmission/transmission-parts/wheel-bearing-and-wheel-hub/?628590230&1&026206a25365719ad627d0397522edd7cca9ad49&WBRK

can someone shed some light PLEASE :) and if you know any mechanics in the Warrington area that would be PERFECT !

Summary

If there are concerns relating to grinding noise from the front end during straight-ahead driving and when cornering, the probable cause is a defective halfshaft bearing.

To rectify this concern, the intermediate shaft should be removed and a new halfshaft bearing and halfshaft bearing retainer installed.

• NOTE: When holding the halfshaft bearing retainer and rotating the bearing, a rough feel should clearly be felt. With the vehicle raised, turn the halfshaft via the wheel and listen for grinding noise or rough running of the halfshaft bearing for this purpose.

Service Instruction

Diagnostics

1. Raise and support the vehicle. For additional information, refer to the corresponding Workshop Manual Section 100-02.

2. NOTE: When holding the intermediate shaft center bearing retainer and rotating the bearing, a rough feel should clearly be felt.

Turn the halfshaft via the wheel and listen for grinding noise or rough running of the halfshaft bearing.

3. Check for a grinding noise or rough running of the halfshaft bearing.

If YES - continue with <Installing a new halfshaft bearing>.

If NO - further diagnosis and testing is necessary. For additional information, refer to the corresponding Workshop Manual Section 100-04.

Installing a new halfshaft bearing

1. Remove the intermediate shaft. For additional information, refer to the corresponding Workshop Manual Section 205-04.

2. Discard the boot clamping strap.

3. Throughly clean the components.

4. NOTE: Note the position of the component before removal.

Press out the halfshaft bearing.

5. WARNING: Align the special tools centrally in order to prevent tilting of the halfshaft bearing on the intermediate shaft.

• NOTE: Make sure that this component is installed to the noted removal position.

Press a new halfshaft bearing (see Parts Required) onto the intermediate shaft up to the stop.

6. CAUTION: Do NOT use cable / zip ties - only use the correct boot and boot clamping strap.

Fill the CV joint with the correct type and quantity of grease (available in the specified CV boot and clamp service kit) (see Parts Required).
