I was driving around in Paranoia mode for the past month or so... I have a new(ish) motor in my car and my tranny is slipping. So I have been driving around with the fan and radio off listening for the next sign of trouble.
I found it.
About two weeks ago, I noticed my snow tires got knobbier... I mean... they MUST be because the road noise is getting to the point where my car sounds like a truck.
Then it dawned on me that my tires did not magically get un-poopy. No... no... my wheel bearings are cooked.
Long story short: A great friend invites me to change them at his shop. According to the online videos and documentation... should be a snap.
Problem with that is, none of those examples had a wheel bearing that was rust WELDED to the cv axel like the passenger side one was.
Paul says; "I know what to do!"
Call in the welders torch.
I look away to not see the carnage and to not catch a flash... when I hear the torch go out... I still hear sizzling.
