2000 Neon Wheel Bearing Diagnosis and Repair

Here’s a video showing how to replace the wheel bearing on a early Gen2 neon. This is a rear wheel bearing in my case. I show two short video pieces of the good side vs. the bad side so you can see the difference. Not much noticeable

as far as symptoms but there was a whining from the right rear that was getting louder each day. Finally I was scared to drive it. This was bought on Amazon from Prime Choice for $19.34.


It’s a pretty easy and quick change; it took about 15 min at the most. You need a 30 mm socket, and that’s about it for special tools. You do also need a torque wrench, as you torque the bearing nut to 160 foot lbs of torque.

Torque listings for the Neon are from this link.
