Front bearing replaced, now speedo not working and on traction control on
Ford Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 9 months ago

HI,

The most common mistake is not installing a circlip properly that holds the bearing in the spindle. The circlip ends have to be lined up so the circlip does not block the wheel speed sensor hole. See attached

The spindle will need to come off and this checked and remove it and reinstall it in the proper position

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.

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
