    We've been getting vibrations and a humming type noise which increases with speed, coming from the front end. My first thought was wheel bearings, so I had them checked out, and all was good.

    Heating & cooling
    Hi guys, I've removed the blower motor from my wife's RX4, which was starting to fail. It spins briefly if I give it a hefty turn, but certainly not freely, so I want to lubricate the bearings. The problem is getting access to them. I removed the lower shaft-end clip and washers, then tapped the...
