Heres a quick run down of the problem thus far.
About a month ago I started getting a squeeking sound as I drove, it sounded
just like I needed new brakes. So a couple days ago I finally got around to
picking up some pads and got to work replacing the brakes. To my surprise,
the pads had pleanty of material left. I wasn't sure what to do so I just
cleaned off all the rotors and pads with brake cleaner and put the wheels
As I was putting the front passanger side wheel on I noticed something odd.
The car was up on stands and I tightened the lug nuts down as much as
possible before the wheel spun but the wheel still seamed loose. I grasped
it at the top and bottom and found that I could easily rock it in and out
about 1/2 inch at the top of the wheel, the same travel was found when I
tried rocking it side to side. It looked like the lug nuts were loose, so I
lowered the car and torqued the lug nuts down I then jacked it back up and
the wobble was still there.
I checked the drivers side wheel and that was solid, not play at all. But
the passanger side just seems to wobble around in the hub. I looked at the
hub and bearing area for about an hour and I could not figure out how that
all comes apart. The only bolt I can see is the one holding the half shaft
in the hub.
Does anyone have any experiance with a problem like this? I have stopped
driving the car since it seems like the wheel is about to fall off. Any
advice would be greatly appreciated.
