Best Practices
  • We recommend using factory wheel bearing replacement parts and replacing the wheel bearings, their races, and seals as a set (i.e. replacing both front inner and outer wheel bearings or replacing both rear inner and outer wheel bearings).

  • We recommend inspecting all serviceable wheel bearings at every brake inspection or at 30,000-mile intervals, whichever comes first.

  • We recommend inspecting, cleaning, and repacking all serviceable wheel bearings at 60,000-mile intervals.

Common Symptoms
  • A worn wheel bearing may make a grinding, growling, or rumbling sound that will get louder as the vehicle speed increases.

  • Sometimes a worn wheel bearing will grind or rumble as the vehicle is turned while traveling at city driving speeds or when the brakes are applied to slow down the vehicle as it exits from a freeway.

Common Misdiagnoses
  • Wheel bearing-like noises can be created by other components such as cupped tires, aggressive all-weather tire tread designs, a worn final drive gear set in either a manual or automatic transaxle, a worn out front or rear differential, or a worn drive shaft center support bearing.
