Hi my name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I'll try to help you with this issue, the website may ask if you want a call, but that is up to you. So was this thing going on before the pads were replaced or after.?

AfterJust textI think one of the rotars were broke on the corner
Automotive Expert
texting is ok, so you may need to see if the pads are in correctly. if it something that happened right after they were done and check to see if all of the bolts are on and tight. It could also could be a wheel bearing going bad and you did not see it yet.

Where are the wheel bearingsSome nuts that goes to the bearings where loose when I changed the brakes I tightened everything up when it all was tight it started making noise and troubleAre the wheel bearings the same on both sides
Automotive Expert
I need to know more about the car, like it's a 2005, Saturn what and is it\*\*\*\*\* and what engine does it have so I can look up more info

Automotive Expert
Here is the procedure for those wheel bearings.

Does the racket pinion come with the bracket right hand side next to the boot
Automotive Expert
If you are meaning the outer tie rod yes it does, and you should not have to take it loose.

The bracket with bushings is broke on the right hand side or cracked all the way thru. Do they sell that part separately or do you have to buy the whole thing and where you could find that part to buy
Automotive Expert
I am not sure of which bracket your talking about can you send a Pic.

I tried to send pictures but it is blocked or you wouldn't accept themRacket pinion right hand side next to boot the bracket
Automotive Expert
