How Long Do Wheel Bearings Last?

Most people take for granted all of the systems that have to work together in order for their car to run. Making a car mobile is a lot harder than most people think. The power that the engine produces gets converted in the transmission and then helps to put this power to the wheels of the car. The axle shafts on a car will go through the hub assemblies on a car and turn them. In order for the axle shafts to stay in place, they will need a wheel bearing to go around them. Each time that a car is put in drive or reverse, the wheel bearings will have to go to work.

The wheel bearings on a car will last anywhere from 75,000 to 150,000 miles. There are various types of bearings that can go on the wheels of a car. Some of the bearings are unsealed and can be taken out, cleaned and repacked in grease. If the bearing on a car is sealed, then you will not be able to add grease to it. The last thing that a car owner needs to do is to run their bearings without the proper amount of grease due to the damage that it can cause.

Due to the importance that the wheel bearings play in the overall functionality of a car, it is important to have them repaired or replaced as quickly as possible. The best way to ensure that this work is done in a timely manner without mistakes is by finding the right professionals. The professionals will be able to get the damaged bearings off of the car and the news ones on in no time at all.

The following are some of the things that you may notice when it is time to get your wheel bearings replaced:

  • A grinding or squealing sound when the car is in motion
  • The steering wheel shakes while driving
  • It is hard for the wheel to go in motion

By noticing these signs and acting quickly, you will be able to limit the amount of repairs that have to be done. Have a certified mechanic replace the bad wheel bearing to eliminate any further problems with your vehicle.

Subaru Outback - Wheel Bearings Replacement (Driver Side Front, Passenger Side Front) - Denver, Colorado
Prompt, professional, easy to communicate with, and quick. He was able to complete a repair that I had started myself but just was not able to separate some parts because my car is a bit of a rust bucket. He was easily able to come in and clean up my 'mess'/rust. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Denver area who needs a repair done where their car is!

Great guy. Car gave him a lot of problems doing the wok. Not his fault, parts were really corroded and took an extraordinary effort to get them off. He never gave up on it. I would have. You can't go wrong with Bryant.
