Loose Rotor on 1998 Toyota Corolla. Need a FIX pls

I have a loose rotor on my driver side.

Even with the tire on, it would still wobble. When i remove the tire, i can wobble the rotor back and forth. I dont think this is normal, so i checked the front passenger side for any wobble. It does wobble but just a tiny bit.

The driver side would wobble like 2 cms out and 2 cms in.

Thats my situation.

Whats the solution to this ?

I dont feel safe driving my car right now.

What part do i have to change ? I read about it on google searches, that i have to change the wheel bearings, i have to replace the rotor.

When i drive it, it sounds like this .

When driving into a bend, near the end of the video, theres no wheel wobble. at 00:24 seconds.

please help.

TIA

If your rotor is moving around, the issue is most likely the wheel bearing. Have that checked out. I can almost assure you that's the problem.
If it is the wheel bearing, have it replaced quickly. The entire wheel and hub assembly almost separated from my friends car due to a worn wheel bearing.

There's no way your rotor is loose if the wheel is mounted unless the rotor is physically broken. The rotor is sandwiched between the wheel and the hub face so there's almost no way this is the case.

By what you described my guess is either the wheel bearings, tie rod ends or ball joints are worn out.

yeah when the wheels off theres nothing holding the rotor. when you brake does the steering wheel wobble? when the wheel is on, there is free play when you try moving it up and down? how about side to side? its common the front wheel bearings screw up and damage the hub as well. can't remember if they make that banging noise though..

yeah, even when the wheel is sandwhiched in between the lug nut and the rotor, i made sure that the wheel is in all the way before tightening the lug nut.

Then i would proceed to shake the driver side, and it would wobble for some reason. I did the same with passenger side , 90% less wobble .

hmmm..when the wheel is off, brake ? is that what your saying ? if so, i havent tried that.

but when im driving, braking doesnt affect my steering wheel, just when im turning slightly to the left , only slightly. it would make that noise.

ill post another video tmrw of the rotor.

Sounds like a wheel bearing. If your wheels aren't seated properly then your rotor could be moving but then so would your wheel. All the above potentially dangerous situations.

Lordco probably in the HELP section.

So was the axle nut loose or what? If it was, the wheel bearing is probably worn out.

yeah it was loose nut axle ?

i need that jagged piece tho, so should i just bring in this picture and show that to napa guys ?

Thanks for all your help and input.

Went to my buddy's house to get a 27" rachet in order to fit that axle nut.

And voila, that fixed the problem, temporarily .. until i get the hub and the cotter pin

Is that nut-lock broken? (the jagged piece)

If it's not just reuse it and get a new cotter pin. Any parts store will probably just give you one cause they're only worth like 10 cents.

Just so you know, you still need a new wheel bearing. All you did was tighten it up to compesate for it being worn.

if that big nut was loose, and nobody tampered with it, you probably need a wheel bearing... which isn't a job the average do it yourselfer can do...

the cotter pin and the jagged piece only serve the purpose of being a preventative measure so the large nut that holds your CV shaft onto your hub and wheel bearing has no chance of working itself loose... but that nut is supposed to be torqued to 200+ ft lbs... even without the castle and pin, i've never seen one become loose...

replace the wheel bearing and hub...
