88000 km and everything is still all good, unless the previous owner had the bearings changed but he never told me.I check my car once a month to check if everything is allright

Left Front @ about 49K, 58K on the Right. Also Tie rod's @ 54K.

Front breaks @ 37K and Last But Not Least a seal on the Trans @ 34K, Covered Chrysler.

Question:

Anyone having trouble with the Auto Door Locks, @ about 28K my Doors would not Un-Lock (I was still inside), Chrysler said it was a defective switch!

Not being a mechanic guru, how would you know when you need wheel bearings replaced? Sorry if I'm kinda off topic... i have a 2003 with 120+K miles, maybe the previous owner had it replaced.

First time I had a noise at HW speeds and when making a sharp Right Turn, 2nd time same type of noise (But this time it was the other side).

The cost was $625 first time and $400 2nd.

Do you need a bearing press for these wheel bearings?

To my understanding the 2001 does not have hubs, just single bearings.

Easy without a press?

With the Mrs cruiser it was a rubbing sound coming from the left front wheel.

Thanks Natali and Loxsmith - I so hope that the previous owner had to deal with the wheel bearings. As far as I can tell, I don't hear anything.

I just bought a 2002 with 106K miles, and replaced both. I have owned a number of FWD chrysler products. It seemed like there were a whole lot of issues with 82-85 wheel bearings, and went away. We owned two neons that ran 168, and 190K miles without having to replace them. I am suprised by the responses here. They may be using China crap bearings, rather than SKF or some other reputable brand.

Fortunately, I built a wheel bearing puller for the old k-car stuff and works fine on the PT. I can do it myself without wrecking the alignment. You just have to disconnect the lower ball joint, pull out the axle. I can make a posting if someone is interested.

Regards,
