Bad rear wheel bearing or something else?

Post by mymangochutney » Sun Jun 24, 2018 2:13 pm

Car has ONLY 60k miles but there's a very loud nose like a plane engine coming from the rear end. It happens above 15Mph but I don't notice any crazy vibration at highway speeds, it just gets loader.

this is at 40Mph but I start to brake around 20 seconds in.

Just an update, took it to the dealer and it was a bad bearing!

Dealer?!?! That was probably a big bill for an easy job.

didn't approve the repair yet, I'm in the rustbelt so I'm not sure if I should try to do it myself?

Also the puller will cost like $150 alone
