Default timing belt and other problems!

i have a o1 rs coupe with 73k on it , is it time to change the timing belt or could i go up to 100k on it ? also if car is stationary turning the steering wheel car is starting to make squeking noise is that cause of drive belt or is it timing belt? also i think my rear bearing is gone i hear like a whooo whooo whooo consistently , if bearing is left can it cause major damage is bearing is left alone?

Also my auto tranny i am getting wheel spin front left tire especially in the rain and snow , Ive read up and I believe its my front dif , I dont drive the car much but still need it , is there a way to correct it without costing a arm and a leg , or is it just better to wait till whole tranny dies and replace it all together



thanks for all your help!

I believe the recommended timing belt change for an RS is 105,000.

You probably have a loose power steering belt if it's squealing when you turn the wheel.

If the sound you're hearing from the rear changes depending on the speed or when you take corners, you probably have a bad rear wheel bearing. It may be a humming sound or a metal on metal grinding sound if it's really bad. It's something you should definitely fix.

I don't know what to tell you about the wheel spin problem.

As far as your wheel spin problem goes you can put a LSD in the front, that's just the nature of an open differential.

problem is with the auto's the front diff is in the transmission so id have to open her up and thats expensive

thats good to know about the timing belt cause any shop i went to and i would tell them how many miles i have they were like yeah its time , but in my mind i was like no way at 73k just wanted to double check , cause i searched and coulnt find the real answer anywhere

Dont search or ask for maintenance advice as 99% of people, techs included, will steer you wrong. Go read the Maintenance FAQ stickied at the top of this forum...it contains the RIGHT answer.
