I had my oil changed about a month ago. The mechanic said that the noise I was hearing on the front drivers side was a leaking seal. He said that eventually I would have to replace the bearing. I am trying to figure out if this is the wheel bearing or the axle shaft bearing.

  1. The axle shaft bearing would be at the transmission and the wheel bearing (hub bearing) would be at the wheel. Most hub bearing do not leak anything… I would look for signs of leaks on the ground where you park to see if in fact something is leaking. The Hub bearing is a common failure part, more sop than that of the axle bearing.
