Asked by Nov 06, 2013 at 08:10 PM about the 2002 Saturn L-Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

it said online that if u turn the wheel to the right while driving and the sound gets quieter its the left wheel bearing,so I pulled the left wheel bearing hub and it feels smooth no dragging what so ever. the cv axle is the long one and has a support bearing mid way to the trans,i put the car in neutral and feel no dragging in the support,the cv axle looks good no play in it out of the trans realy lost now need some help

1 Answer


Unless they are really shot they will feel smooth with no load on them, but if you were to press them apart you would no doubt see some wear marks on the rollers themselves. It is also a good idea to replace them both at the same time as you will most likely be doing the other side soon.
