2000 FordExplorer XLT
I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLT with just over 36,000 miles on the odometer. The driver's front wheel has started to squeak at lower speeds going forward. It doesnt squeak while reversing. I pulled the wheel off and have traced the noise to the hub itself

Did it start when the weather got cold and goes away with increased speed? run a search for Dust Boot Cover and Hub Seals and you'll find your probable answer. Was a common problem with the 98-99 Ex's. May have passed on to 2000 too.
