Default Freelander Rear Hub Bearing Renewal HELP!!!!!!!

Hi All,

I have searched through the forum for advice on replacing the rear hub bearing on my 06 Freelander, but can't find anything so I'm asking for help??

My 06 Freelander TD4, is making a strange noise from the back end like a droning noise and a slight bit of vibration but is only noticable at speeds of around 60 mph and also when slowing down when say coming up to a roundabout. I took it to a garage and had the two prop bearings changed on their advice but the noise and vibration is still there the only thing I can think off is the hub/wheel bearing is on the way out so I would like to change it. I'm pretty handy at DIY but have never done this type of repair myself before and am looking for a bit of advice from forum members on how to go about it. I know bearings can be a pain to remove and replace but I'm pretty confident I have the tools to do this.

So any advice more than welcome.

Thanks

Grayo

yes I have a diff problem and as soon as I can I am changing it as I have a replacement I lead to believe that all the diffs are the same ( Stratstones told me) but the one I got it off was the same TD4 auto what usually happens is the bearing go on each side if you get under and try to move the drive shafts up and down mine is terrible I am going to replace the outer ends CVs as it would be silly not to and the inner ones are perfect the doner car had only done small milage as the engin sized so he scraped it but he cut the drivshafts to get the diff out easy and remember if you are going to diy then make sure the bolts holding your sub frame up are correctly tightend

Make sure they go in the correct way - one side is magnetic for the abs!

Hi Grayo,
How many miles have you done? and have you checked the VCU? Noticed it tight/holding back when reversing?

If your vcu is tight then it will put extra strain on your ird and diff...some users have seen saw toothing on the rear tyres which causes droning/vibration at certain speeds.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the reply. The car has done 51,000 miles, I've not checked the VCU, and have not noticed it tight/holding back when reversing apart from sometimes a little whining noise from the back passenger side when turning a corner. I have just had the two prop bearings changed so I know it's not those thats causing the problem.

I was just having a look on another forum and somebody on there seems to have had the same problem, he found out it was the tyres that were causing the problem. I had two front tyres changed last November, before I had Michelin's all round I now have a different make on the front I'm just wondering if this is the same problem as the guy on the other forum. I must say I didn't notice any noise before the tyre change????

Hi.
New tyres should ALWAYS go on the back if your only changing 2 of them. Also I have seen, twice now two different people thinking a wheel bearing Was on it's way out and it turned out to be a tyre that had worn unevenly, so check them first before you go to the trouble and expense of doing the bearings.
Good luck.
