Well I ran the Rex through the car wash yesterday and shortly after that I started hearing a grinding noise from the front end. It sounded like it was right in front of me. So I thought it might be my speedo cable so I removed the cluster cover and drove with it off. No change in sound so I don't think that was it. Removed both wheels didn't find and thing rubbing including brakes. Got her up on the ramps to change the oil, so took a look around found nothing wrong. Then it just came to me wheel bearing! How can I tell if thats what the problem really is? I spun the wheel when I had it off the ground, sounded ok. If it is a wheel bearing how hard is it to change? I've got a Helm's manual, tools and plenty of time (unemployed) .
