2001 recon making noise in the axle

I have an 01 recon and I think the bearings are bad in the axle. looking at the rear end, it is the left side of the axle that makes a grinding noise, opposite the break, when you spin the wheel. Im not sure what it is but was told that it might be the bearings? - any suggestions on what to do

Welcome to the forums. Yeah, it sounds like the bearings are out.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

can you guys give me some basic directions to get started - Does the axle slide out once I take the locking nuts off and is there a specific way it should come out.

Remove the left hub and right hub, axle nuts, brakes and the axle knocks out the right side.
