- Test drove vehicle to confirm customer concern. Noise is transmitting through whole vehicle. Raised vehicle on lift and spun all tires by hand. Found front right tire is rough when spun by hand. Started vehicle on lift and put into drive. Noise still present at 20 mph with wheels off ground. Checked transmission and driveline components with stethoscope. Noise is originating from passenger front wheel bearing. Recommend replacement of front hub assembly/wheel bearing. Removed right front wheel, brake caliper, caliber bracket, and rotor. Removed axle retaining nut and loosened axle from hub.. Disconnected wheel speed sensor wiring. Removed hub retaining bolts. Removed hub assembly from spindle. (Note: One wheel stud was not seated in hub any more and fell out when wheel nuts were removed.) Checked spindle for signs of damage, nothing visibly present. Installed new hub assembly and reinstalled brakes, hardware, and wheel. Started vehicle on lift and checked for noise again. Noise no longer present. Checked wheel speed sensor data via scan tool, sensor reading properly. Test drove vehicle to recheck for noise. Evan at highway speeds, noise is no longer present. Note: Recommend vehicle alignment is checked due to impact damage to wheels.
