Rear Wheel Bearings causing my knocking ticking sounds

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

well after a few weeks of this creaking then ticking noise coming from the rear of my car I had enough and at the lights saw a MIDAS and drove the car straight in

I took the guy for a ride in my car, he put it up on the hoist and diagnosed the issue as my rear wheel bearings.

he said its pretty dangerous to keep driving as they are. my right ones pretty bad and the left one isnt making as much noise but is on the way out.

anyway 900 to fit and replace both sides. does that sound right?

is it as dangerous as he was making it out to be?

its a 03 sportivo.

obviously thrashed by previous owner

im just hoping this will be the end of the creaking noise and i can get on with driving this car without worrying.

the way i check bearings is i take the load of the wheel, spin it up and place my hand on the spring of the mcpherson strut, if you feel nothing its fine, if u feel vibration/grinding then bearing is gone..

not knowing much about the suspension of the stivo, i know the astra's have a techline about a rear creak.. its where the rear axle bolts to the chassis, its that bush thats been revised as a new part... dunno if that points you to any new direction...

is the car lowered or anything???
