Information - Wheel bearing kit

Wheel hub bearing is used in cars, trucks, agricultural engineering, scooters and motorcycles. Safety of traffic depends on the status of this important vehicle part. Wheel hub bearing functions with shocks, roller skew in the case where the gaps are very large. This operation can lead to deterioration of vehicle control and stability. On the other hand, the problem can be caused by a strong tightening of the adjusting nut, which leads to a small gap of the bearing. In a short time it becomes defective. Regulation of gaps is a very serious process and should be done very careful, according to the instructions on the operating manual of the carmaker.

When you decide to check whether the gaps are adjusted in the wheel bearings, wave the suspended wheel. Furthermore, if the wheel hub gets very hot while driving at speed of up to 80 km/h for half an hour, the adjustment is wrong. If the hub is a little bit warm, then everything is fine. Hub heating depends on a very small gap in the bearing. When using this method of testing, drivers need to stop the vehicle using the parking brake and not the service brake to prevent further overheating of the brake mechanism.

To understand whether the wheel bearing is faulty, you need to understand whether there is noise on tight turns and wheel rotation is difficult when the brake is released. So, if the bearing is faulty it should be replaced in the garage, but not by yourself as this part is located close to the knuckle and should be installed with a special press.

What is necessary to know about wheel hub bearing replacement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

Lifetime limit of the wheel hub bearing is 100,000 – 150,000 kilometers of mileage.

Operational lifetime of the part depends on peculiarities of car operation, for example, driving style. Apart from wear-out, replacement of the wheel bearing may be necessary at mechanical damage of the ABS sensor tone ring.

In most cases, specific crunch during car driving indicates wear of the bearing. Also defect of the part may be suspected at appearance of steering wheel vibration. Necessity of holding the steering wheel in order to maintain straightforward movement also indicates it. Otherwise, the steering wheel uncontrollably turns to one side.

If the sensor tone ring is damaged, ABS fault indicator will be lit on the instrument panel. The system will switch into emergency mode, when the car brakes will be still operating, but without ABS.

It is recommended to perform diagnostics of the components at a service station. This is because special equipment is necessary for diagnostics. Particularly, in order to inspect the front or rear wheel hub bearing, you will need a lifting platform. Specialists have various checking methods, for example, using one hand they take the lower wheel part and the upper one with the other hand, and sway it vertically. They check every wheel in that way for presence of bearing free play, which indicates component trouble.

8It is advised to contact a car service station in order to replace the front or rear wheel hub bearing. It is important to take into account peculiarities of the specific vehicle during replacement of this component. For example, on some cars, the hub bearing and the wheel hub are made as a single unit. Moreover, part replacement works may involve intense impact on the wheel hub. In this case, wheels alignment should be checked after completing the assembly, and adjusted if needed. Installing a new wheel hub bearing, you need to replace the fastening elements.

Important advices for our customers

Is it possible to replace wheel bearings by yourself?

Many car owners wonder if they stand a chance to replace a faulty wheel bearing by themselves. As a rule, the disassembly takes quite a while, as well as it requires a number of specific tools, thus, replacing a worn-out wheel bearing shall be entrusted to technical experts.

Only a fair amount of mechanical aptitude, as well as special tools will help you to breeze through the DIY replacement prodedure. An algorithm for replacing a front or rear wheel bearing may differ depending on a vehicle construction type. You can find detailed video tutorials to help you with the replacement procedure on YouTube.

When should wheel bearings be replaced?

On average, wheel bearings can operate for up to 70,000-100,000 km. Yet, their actual operational life depends on a number of factors, among which are the following:

  • driving manner;
  • average speed when driving within a city or along highways;
  • road surface quality;
  • design of the specific wheel bearing;
  • condition of sealing components and other suspension parts;
  • mounting place: rear wheel bearings can operate a bit longer if compared to front wheel bearings;
  • mechanical load upon a hub: a wheel bearing premature wear is caused, as a rule, by installing spacers, as well as by using heavy-weight brake discs and tyres.

If any subtle signs of a bearing assembly malfunction are detected, perform an urgent diagnostics and replace a spare part if needed.

How to check wheel bearings?

To check whether your front wheel hub bearings are operable, accelerate your vehicle to 40 - 60 km/h and then, turn the steering wheel left and right 20° maximum. If the humming increases as you turn the steering wheel to the right, it means the left wheel bearing is to be replaced; if the same is true for turning left, then the right bearing should be replaced. The noise will grow louder even when cornering smootly; keep that in mind in case you're unable to test the method described above.

To check if your rear wheel bearings are operable, spin a respective wheel manually, and try to wobble it.

Jamming, jerking movements and free play point out that a respective wheel bearing has exceeded its life time. Detailed replacement instructions can be found in video tutorials on the Internet.
