Movement In The Right Rear Wheel.

Hello once again,

This is more of a 'please confirm' post than anything.

I'm quite sure that I have a wheel bearing issue. Either that or a loose hub nut. The issue is located on the right rear wheel of the car. I have checked all the suspension linkages. I have also checked the shock absorber when the car is on or off the jack stands. There is no play.

Though there are none of the sounds or vibrations associated with a rear wheel bearing issue, the wheel can be moved when the car is up in the air.

If you hold the wheel in the north/south position, then it can be tilted inwards and outwards. The brakes move along with it as well. If you hold the wheel in the east/west position, the wheel and brakes do not move.

Thus, I suspect a wheel bearing is bad. Is my diagnosis correct? Or would the loose hub nut make more sense? Or maybe both?

Update.

In an attempt to generate some more insight, I mounted the wheel with the hub dust cover and brakes off the car, and attempted to recreate the movement.

I no longer think it's the wheel bearings. If it were, only the hub would move, right? I am certain the spindle (and brake dust cover) also moves along with it. So it must be the suspension. Right?

The hub itself moves well, with no play nor abnormalities.

If there is no noise while driving, it has to be the suspension, I think. Mostly a hub bearing make noise, if it is worn.

You have to check the upper and lower arm, especialy the ball joint.

I have already renewed all the upper and lower arms on my Legend.

Greetings
Ralph

Thank you for the interesting insight. I've checked the boot on the balljoints, and they seem to be fine. Though, I haven't checked the condition of the ball joints themselves. I will take a look at them at a later day.

It's a good idea to take a second person to do that. You have to rattle at the wheel. The other person hast to touch and feel movement at the ball joint.

I checked the ball joints today. I took the wheel off and proceeded to grab the brake disk and shake it. There is movement on the upper control arm, but not on the lower.

Thank you for the tip though! I shall also do that.

I hope this link works. It's a video of the rear upper left ball joint moving. I'm sure this isn't normal.

Do I replace just this one, or is it better to replace both sides at the same time?

(Please pardon the message repeats above; I can't remove them).

That ist clear with the movement. Since the original wishbones are no longer available, I only change the defective part.

Check the meassure of the aftermarket part to the original to be shure that it fit well.

I leave original parts as long as I could in the car.

Thank you for your advice! I've ordered some parts from the USA! I have checked; they are OEM!
