HELP! I don't want to look like an idiot at the dealership, and I would rather look like an idiot in front of you guys instead. I have the typical bearing noise that I have heard in my other cars, and have replaced front wheel bearings before, but these are the rears. I am finding different answers on the web about whether there are "Wheel bearings, Axle Bearings, or both" on rear wheel drive cars. I was at the dealership, but got a call on my cell and had to bolt out the door and told him I would be back. But before I bolted, I asked him for axle bearings, but then started to second guess myself when he was talking about rear end seals. I know you have to dissasemble the rear to get to them, but am second guessing myself anyway. Someone please confirm on way or another.
PS- doing the job is not a big deal, I have a technical expert willing to help me, so don't worry.
