Frequently asked questions
+

What is a car's Wheel Bearing?

Your car has a Wheel Bearing on each wheel, supporting the weight of the car, and allowing the wheel to spin freely, in perfect alignment with your axle and with your brakes. They are vital for safe driving.
+

What does a car Wheel Bearing do?

The Wheel Bearing is an exceptionally hard-wearing component. It needs to be strong enough to support the weight of the car, including in sudden changes of direction, but also needs to allow smooth spinning of the wheels. It does this with a set of bearings. Think of them as small, hard, metal spheres sitting between an inner and an outer cylinder. The tight fit between the cylinders means that, as the outer one turns, the metal spheres 'race' each other around the inner cylinder - and the outer cylinder smoothly rotates.
+

What does a Wheel Bearing noise mean?

The components of a wheel bearing are made from hardened steel. As this metal fatigues it begins to flake. When this happens, the bearings passing over this pitted surface make a rumbling or growling noise.
+

What are the symptoms of a bad wheel bearing?

The most common indicator of a worn wheel bearing is a rumbling or growling noise that increases with speed. It may also get worse when making short zig-zagging movements when driving (ensure you have space to do this). There may also be a little play in the wheels when raised.
+

Can I drive with a bad wheel bearing?

We would always recommend replacing a wheel bearing that is showing signs of wear. That said, it is generally the case that a worn bearing will continue to work for a period of time. Our recommendation: change the bearing, because a worn bearing could fail at any time.
+

How much does a replacement wheel bearing cost?

Our data suggests that the wheel bearing replacement job costs between £120 and £150 on common makes and models.

What is a wheel bearing?

The car’s wheel bearings are a series of steel balls secured together on a metal ring called a race. Each wheel of your car has a wheel bearing, which supports the weight of your car. Its function is to let your wheels move ad turn with as little friction as possible.

They are used on a variety of other automobiles from cars, airplanes and bikes. In cars, the wheel bearing rides on a metal axle shaft and fits securely inside the wheel hub.


Symptoms of a bad wheel bearing

Wheel bearings are made to last a long time, but when poorly lubricated they can become very hot and thus damaged prematurely. Often making a replacement necessary.

They can also wear if a wheel bearing seal is damaged, meaning water and debris enter the component and cause it to fail.


Signs that your wheel bearing needs repair or replacing:


·        Car feels loose when steering, a loss of control is felt

·        Feels like car is pulling to one side

·        Tyres are unevenly worn

·        An unusual grinding or grating noise which worsens as you accelerate – be cautious as it can sound similar to damaged tyres

·        A humming noise can point to a number of components, but it may be your wheel bearings

·        A noise has often been compared to flipping a deck of cards against a bicycle spoke.

·        A rumbling noise is a sign that the wheel bearing seal is damaged

·        Clicking noise when turning

·        Vibrations at low speeds

·        Wheel wobbles in your hands as you turn it

·        Uneven brake pad wear

·        Uneven tyre wear and overall wear occurring faster than normal


Risks of driving with bad wheel bearings

Although they will still operate after you begin to notice signs of wear, this will not last long. You must act rapidly as there is a chance that your wheel bearing may lock up. This would be a complete disaster if it occurred whilst you are driving. Worst case scenario is that your wheel may actually fall off whilst driving.

Driving with a worn bearing can also put a huge strain on the hub, CV joint and the transmission causing more extensive damage overall. Have the wheel bearings replaced efficiently to keep overall repair costs to a minimum. At the first sign of trouble, make sure to have the component inspected by a professional mechanic.


Replacing or repairing your wheel bearings

If only one wheel bearing fails, there is no necessity for you to replace them on both sides. The working (and remaining) wheel bearings should continue to operate for years to come. A mechanic would be able to diagnose the problem and detect which or if all the wheel bearings need replacing. A wheel bearing change is a challenging job to carry out at home, even if you possess mechanical knowledge.
