Asked by Nov 05, 2010 at 03:10 PM about the Ford Aerostar

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently noticed that the wheel bearing on the pass. side was not seated and the hub nut was loose causing the rotor to move away from the hub.the only thing holding the wheel on was the cotter pin. I inspected and regreased the bearing and torqued the bolt to specs. It solved the shimmy for about a day. Any ideas about this. Thanks.

replace the bearing,you may have to replace that tire,or at least have it balanced,also it could have warped the rotor.
