Customer Question
the tire off, the right...
I have a 1996 Ford explorer with 284,000 miles on it. With the tire off, the right side front hub/ rotor, (the whole unit), will wiggle maybe a 1/4 inch when pushing/ pulling on the sides of the rotor. There was a broken sway bar end link that I've replaced. Any suggestions?

It sounds like either the bearing in the hub rotor is bad or the hub nut on the spindle isn't tight enough.

Has the bearing been replaced recently?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
