Common questions about replacing wheel bearings

What are the signs of wheel hub bearing failure?

The first signs of a worn wheel bearing are grinding, knocking, rattling, and other unusual sounds coming from the wheel. In addition, you can feel the steering wheel wobbling. Sometimes the vibrations are transmitted to the car body. When driving with a seized bearing, the car may pull to one side. If you grasp the top and bottom of the wheel and try to rock it up and down, there will be play.

Can I change the wheel bearing myself?

If you have basic car repair skills, you can replace the wheel hub bearing yourself. Video tutorials from AUTODOC Club will help you with this. But keep in mind that the replacement process is quite labour-intensive. You may need a metal brush, a set of bearing drivers, spanners including a lug wrench, a hammer, and screwdrivers. It’s also a good idea to stock up on car care products: brake cleaner to remove dirt and degrease surfaces, penetrating oil to loosen stuck fasteners, and multi-purpose grease. If you have access to a car lift, it would make the job easier.

Is it dangerous to drive with a worn hub bearing?

Very. In the best case, driving with a bad bearing will end up with a costly repair of the suspension. In the worst case, if a hub bearing breaks while you’re driving, the wheel may jam, causing you to lose control of the car completely.
