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.
