THE WHY OF WHEEL BEARING REPLACEMENT

How Wheel Bearings Work and Why They Get Damaged

In order to operate with minimal friction and maximum efficiency, your wheel axles rotate inside bearings. These bearings are kept clear of dirt and debris through the use of rubber seals, which hold a pocket of lubricating fluid around the bearing to help the axle rotate freely. 

 

Unfortunately, these seals wear out over time. They can also become damaged, exposing the wheel bearings to the open air. Once this happens, the bearing can become damaged, leading the way to a host of other problems.

DO YOU NEED TO REPLACE A WHEEL BEARING?

Once a bearing seal becomes damaged, wear and tear to the bearing itself can happen quickly. Pay close attention to these signs of wheel bearing problems on the horizon:

 

  • Leaking Fluids –  Grease or oil leaks around your wheels.

 

  • Warning Lights –  The ABS light on your vehicle’s dashboard.

 

  • Strange Noises –  Low grumbling or rumbling noises around your wheels while driving.

 

If you notice one of these warning signs, contact your auto service provider as soon as possible. Prolonging repairs could cause more problems in other parts of your vehicle.

CAN YOU REPLACE WHEEL BEARING YOURSELF?

While you can replace wheel bearings and seals at home, we highly advise you to seek out the help of a professional. An experienced technician will be able to:

 

  • Inspect the surrounding parts for wear that can shorten the lifespan of your new bearings. 

 

  • Install your new bearings properly, with the appropriate tools and techniques.

 

  • Identify other issues that may have caused premature wear on your wheel bearings. 

 

If you replace your wheel bearings at home, you won’t have the equipment, expertise, or visibility needed to identify other problems or ensure that your new parts are properly installed.

THE BENEFITS OF A WHEEL BEARING REPLACEMENT

A SMOOTHER RIDE

Keeping your wheel system in good working order will ensure that your wheels, bearings, and axles rotate smoothly—allowing your trips to go off without a hitch.

GREATER SAVINGS

All of the parts of your steering system are interconnected. When one part gets damaged, it can cause problems in other areas—and rack up more repair bills.

SAFER PERFORMANCE

Your tires, steering system, and brakes are crucial to ensuring you can move, turn, and stop as needed. By keeping these parts in good condition and promptly making repairs, you can keep your vehicle operating safely.

HOW TO PREVENT WHEEL BEARING ISSUES

While normal wear can’t necessarily be avoided, you can prolong the life of your wheel bearings and seals with these top tips from our experts:

Regular maintenance can help prevent excessive wear and tear on your wheel seals, bearings, axles, and other related parts.

In the early stages, vehicle problems aren’t always obvious. However, you can still catch them during this time by performing an in-depth inspection. Your auto service provider can help by providing their expertise and resources.

One of the most common causes of wheel seal failure is actually improper installation. That’s why it’s crucial to find an experienced technician to install them.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much does a wheel bearing replacement cost?

Wheel bearing replacements typically cost around $350 per wheel. Wheel seal replacement service alone can cost between $200 to $300 for parts and labor. The final price will depend on the make and model of your vehicle as well as the policies of the repair center.

How long does it take to replace a wheel bearing?

Wheel bearing replacement typically takes a couple of hours. If you are just getting a wheel seals repair service, it may take less than two hours. Either way, be sure to factor in additional time, since it may take a while of waiting in line.

How do I maintain my vehicle after a wheel bearing replacement?

The most helpful thing you can do to maintain the life of your wheel bearing is to get your vehicle inspected at regular intervals by a reliable, experienced auto service provider. Often, you can get inspections done at the same time as regular maintenance, saving you money and minutes.
