Mitsubishi Montero Bearing Noise

Fix Mitsubishi Montero Bearing Noise

Some 2001-03 Mitsubishi Montero owners may hear a hum or clicking sound coming from the front axle while driving. Mitsubishi is advising shops that one likely cause is contamination in the front hub/bearing assembly. Water gets into the bearing and damages it.

Mitsubishi has redesigned the bearing as part number MN 103586. Make sure you install a new castle nut. Torque it to 148 ft/lbs.
