Wheel Bearing Problems

  1. Howdy,

    So I was wrong. It wasn't the catalytic converter...it was my front
    wheel bearing that was making all the noise, but still $300 per bearing
    to fix (with parts and labour). Apparently, the Hyundai dealer claims
    that poor wheel bearings is a major defect with Tiburons. Anyone else
    have this as an issue?

  2. Where's the original post you made? ...ah, Message-ID
    ? Follow up when the topic remains the
    same, rather than creating new threads, and it's much easier to follow
    conversations. Or at least include some context, so it's easier to
    figure out what happened previously.
    I went to newtiburon.com and grepped the last 2 months of their forums
    for "bearing", only found 2 posts about wheel bearings:



    (both links all on one line, natch.) If there were a real problem
    affecting a lot of people, I'd expect more posts on that site about it,
    but ICBW. Your original post said this was a 1999 Tiburon; maybe this
    problem has been resolved/ameliorated in newer models and that's why I'm
    not seeing anything relevant on that website.

    Most of what I found was related to the clutch on newer V6 Tiburons,
    which *does* seem to have a problem. Anyway, I haven't had any problems
    so far, but then I've only got 2800 miles on my 2003 Tiburon.

    Front wheel bearings shouldn't be worn out at 130km.

    What shape are your tires in? Worn out tires can sound just like a bad
    wheel bearing.

    warranty..... here in Canada anyway....
