My wheel bearings are making noise

My car has 171000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Hey there, thank you for asking about your ...

Hey there, thank you for asking about your 1996 Ford Contour. If your wheel bearings are noisy then you should have them checked to see which one is bad and replace the bearings. The front axle bearings are part of hub and the rear is also part of the hub. If you want to have this checked by a certified mechanic, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect and replace your wheel bearings.
