Asked by KandD13 Jul 04, 2020 at 04:38 PM about the 2010 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

How to tell if I have a bad ball joint or wheel bearing going
out in my 2010 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition. The
front driver tire feels loose/wobbly and it makes a noise.
You can also feel it in the steering.

Don't know your mileage, but my first guess would be the wheel bearing. Other items, like ball joints, would be further down the list of suspects.


Likely a wheel bearing. Take it to a reputable shop for an estimate.


To check the bearing, jack up the car until front wheel(s) are off the ground. Grab the tire at the 12 and 6 O'clock position and see if it rocks back and forth while pulling on the top and pushing at the bottom. Do the same at 3 and 9 o'clock position. If it wiggles back and forth, the bearing is bad.
