Honestly, Ben brought some serious joy to my day! It has been at least 18 months since I last used YourMechanic, as I realized I can do practically everything myself (thank you Youtube), but as work has gotten more and more hectic, I find myself with substantially less time and ability to commit a few hours on the weekend (what is a weekend anymore haha) to fixing my car. Ben was 5 minutes early, and even reached out the day before to introduce himself, confirm I had the necessary parts, and make sure he brought the correct equipment to work on my Volvo. Volvo quotes me $900, Ben gets it done for $200. He had a smile on his face the whole time and is truly a genuine man. I have some heavy piece of mind knowing I took care of the vehicle that has treated me like a king for the last 3 years, and I owe it to Ben!!
Everything overall was very good. The only thing I would say, meant only as constructive feedback, is that I originally got a quote from the company based on needing a rotor and brake pad. When the first mechanic came out I told him I thought I might, based on internet research need a hub bearing assembly. As it turned out that was the case. Tyrone said the new quote would be about twenty dollars more, $257.00 and change up from the original quote of $232. and change), and that the company would call me when they got the part and that would include the bearing assembly, rotor and brake pad if needed. He said he would tell the company that I was wanting to get the work done as soon as possible. He did not tell me that he couldn't do the work because he didn't have the tool needed for the bearing replacement. So, when I didn't hear back from anyone by the next day I called and had to basically start over. That's when I scheduled with Ben because he is the only one that has the tool for bearing replacement. All well and fine except when he, (Ben), came out he thought he was only going to be replacing the bearing assembly and I told him the rotor needed replacing as well because it was damaged from my driving the car for so long without getting repairs. (this was before I called "your mechanic" in the first place). Anyway, he got the other needed part, did the work and everything was fine. But the price went from $257.00 and change to $387 or so. I informed him (Ben) that Tyrone had told me the $70.00 already paid from when he (Tyrone) came out was supposed to be credited to me. He called it in and I was credited. So the final bill came out to $317.70. The work was done I'm very happy with Ben in the work he did and how he handled everything, but it seems like it might be good in situations like this for the mechanics to carry extra parts that would not be unusual to need for this type of job, like brake pads, rotors, that would or possibly be needed as the work is gotten into. So, again, I don't want this to come off as harsh criticism, but I guess my only complaint is that the quote went up without a full explanation as to why, (I'm assuming that the quote was just for parts and labor on the bearing and not the rotor and possible pad as Tyrone had indicated), and then the communication between home office and mechanic. Now, as far as the overall service, I'm happy, my brakes are fixed, Ben did a great job, Tyrone was good at explaining that after he got into it that I did need a bearing assembly, but I wish he had told me that I needed to call the company and that he could not do the work because of not having the proper tool. Please do not get on Tyrone, as this was not a huge problem, just a mis-communication, I think. Anyway, as previously stated I'm overall happy with everything. Will I use you again, most definitely, and Ben and Tyrone are both terrific mechanics and your program is overall a great convenience, honest evaluation of work needed with fair prices and a worthy service. The twelve months or 12,000 mile warranty is excellent as well.

Great job!
Braxton showed ontime and got started right away. Braxton was a huge help in identifying the problem and correcting the issue with parts provided. Braxton explained everything that he did in detail and provided photo evidence of all repairs. Will definitely be hiring him again in the future.

Had an amazing first experience with Tom. I've already told my neighbor, my brother, and my Dad they need to start using him. Did an incredible professional job, even stepped me through the process so I can do it myself next time. It was very reassuring watching Tom work and seeing everything come apart and put back together with the new parts. YourMechanic is the opposite of everything that is wrong with the typical mechanic shop. Car drives perfectly now and buying my own parts and having Tom install them saved me a big chunk of change.

Wheel Bearings Replacement Service

What are wheel bearings and how do they work?

A wheel bearing assembly consists of rolling elements, such as hardened steel ball bearings or roller bearings, that roll on and around hardened steel bearing races. The wheel bearings support the front and rear axle, and all the weight of your car. Wheel bearings are made with a high-precision technique using extremely hard steel in order to withstand all the normal impacts that occur to the wheel and tire assembly as you drive along the road.

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 the bearing wear progresses. If you believe the wheel bearing noise is coming from one side of the car, you can self-diagnosis your wheel bearing as you drive the car by loading and unloading vehicle weight You can do this by “swerving” from side-to-side. For example, if the noise markedly increases when you swerve to left, which shifts the vehicle’s weight to the right, then it often indicates the wheel bearing on the right is failing.

  • 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.

  • Vibration in the steering wheel or vehicle body and/or wandering. Vibration and lack of directional stability could be consequences of loose or worn out wheel bearings.

  • Tire and wheel assembly does not turn smoothly. With the wheel jacked up, and the car not in gear, the wheel should rotate smoothly. Rough or inconsistent movement, which is often accompanied by noise, can signify damaged bearings. Be sure the brakes are not dragging as you perform this check.

How do mechanics replace wheel bearings?

The complexity of wheel bearing replacement varies greatly depending on the vehicle make, model, year, the wheel position (front versus rear), and the drive type (AWD versus FWD):

  • On vehicles with unitized wheel bearing/hub assemblies, the brake rotor and caliper are removed.
  • The large axle nut is removed, the axle is pushed back through the center of the unitized hub assembly, and three (or more) bolts holding the hub assembly to the steering knuckle are removed.
  • The hub assembly is then removed from the knuckle. On installation of the new hub assembly to the knuckle, the bolts are torqued to the factory specification. In many cases, it is required to discard the old axle nut and replace with a new one. Special attention must be given to tightening the axle nut to the exact factory specification because over or under-tightening can damage the newly installed bearing. All YourMechanic professionals use calibrated torque wrenches on these critical fasteners.
  • Finally, the brake rotor and brake caliper are re-attached, the wheel installed and the car is road tested.
  • On vehicles where the wheel bearing is pressed into a cavity within the steering knuckle, the steering knuckle must be removed from the vehicle in order to press out the old bearing and press in the new bearing.
  • On some vehicles, the wheel bearing is pressed onto an axle shaft and thus the axle must be extracted from the axle carrier. This will apply to certain trucks.

Is it safe to drive with a wheel bearing problem?

No. Wheel bearing failure is usually gradual, although in some cases it starts immediately after the dramatic impact of the wheel and tire assembly with a deep pothole. Wheel bearings can sometimes make noise for quite some time before you experience a catastrophic failure that would result in complete separation of the wheel and tire assembly from the axle. Generally, the risk of sudden failure increases with the noise level. But strictly speaking, once the bearing has started to fail it is impossible to predict exactly when it will fail completely. So it should not continue to be driven. Were a failing bearing to seize or break while you are moving, you could experience loss of control of the vehicle. Once you receive a conclusive diagnostic that a wheel bearing has failed, replace the bearing promptly.

When replacing wheel bearings, keep in mind:

  • If the car has a substantial number of miles on the failed bearing (100,000 miles or more), it is a good idea to replace both bearings (driver and passenger) on the axle at the same time.
  • 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.
