What are wheel bearings and how do they work?

Wheel bearings are sets of small steel balls held together in a metal ring and they are part of an overall system designed to help the wheels spin. There are 4 wheel bearings per car, and each wheel bearing is connected on one side to one of the car's 4 axles via a wheel bearing hub and carrier. On the other side, the while bearings fit tightly inside the hub, a hollow metal piece at the center of the wheel. Together, they help the wheels spin while keeping the axle in place.

When to replace wheel bearings?

  • Growling or grinding noise from a wheel. Failed or failing wheel bearings make a very characteristic growling noise which will grow louder as wear progresses.
  • Axial or radial play in the wheel or wheel hub. Should the wheel hub move up and down, or in and out, the bearing may be worn.
  • Wandering: Lack of directional stability for the car could be the result of loose or worn out wheel bearings.
  • Tire and wheel assembly does not turn smoothly. With the car jacked up, and not in gear, the wheels should rotate smoothly. Rough or inconsistent movement, which is often accompanied by noise, can signify damaged bearings.
  • Maximum miles driven: Wheel bearings typically last 85,000 to 100,000 miles, so they should be replaced when the car has been driven for that many miles.

How do mechanics replace wheel bearings?

The complexity of wheel bearing replacement varies greatly depending on the vehicle make, model, year, wheel position (front vs. rear), and drive type (AWD vs. FWD). However, mechanics follow the same general steps:

  • Remove the wheel.
  • Remove the brake caliper and rotor.
  • Remove the large axle nut.
  • Remove all nuts holding the wheel bearing hub and carrier to the axle.
  • Press out the old bearing and press in the new bearing.
  • Re-install wheel bearing hub and carrier to the axle, making sure to torque the bolts.
  • Re-install brake rotor, caliper, and the wheel.
  • Test drive the car.

Is it safe to drive with a wheel bearing problem?

No, it is not safe to drive with a wheel bearing problem. If a bearing were to break while the car is in motion, it could result in complete separation of the wheel and tire assembly from the axle and a driver could experience loss of control of the vehicle. Luckily, the risk of sudden failure increases with noise level, so be sure to bring in the car to be checked at the first sign of a growling or grinding noise from a wheel.

When replacing wheel bearings, keep in mind:

  • If the car has a substantial number of miles on the failed wheel bearing (100,000 miles or more), it is a good idea to replace both wheel bearings (driver and passenger) on the axle at the same time.
  • Wheel bearings are not created equally. Manufacturing quality varies, so you should only deal with reputable establishments who install name brand products.
  • Some wheel bearings now come with built-in magnetic wheels. If wheel bearings are installed incorrectly, the ABS light can turn on.
  • Wheel bearing noise can be confused with tire noise from defective tires. In difficult cases, a mechanic will apply remote wireless microphones at all 4 wheel positions, and then drive the car while listening to a remote receiver, switching between wheel positions to pinpoint the location of the failed bearing
