I have a failed front carrier bearing on my 2010 Cadillac…

Customer Question
I have a failed...

I have a failed front carrier bearing on my 2010 Cadillac SRX and I have been told that I have to replace the rear drive shaft

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SRX yourself? What have you tried so far?

Trying to figure out if the bearing can be replaced. I already replaced the rear carrier bearing on the drive shaft

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have been told the drive shaft is welded and the front carrier bearing near the yoke cannot be taken off?

It is not welded on but it is not available to purchase so you are stuck buying the replacement drive shaft. I would recommend getting part number and buying yourself from www.car-parts.com which should save you a couple hundred. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
