What are wheel bearings?

Wheel bearings are sets of metal balls, surrounded by a metal ring, that fit tightly inside a wheel hub. They ensure the hub, tyre and wheel assembly operate optimally together.

Signs of worn or damaged wheel bearings

Irregular noises that increase in volume as a vehicle accelerates are indicative of worn or damaged wheel bearings.

When there’s excessive play in the steering, or the steering wheel vibrates when accelerating and taking a corner, the bearings, on one or more wheels, should be replaced.

Uneven tyre wear and problems with the anti-lock brake system (ABS) are also signs of failing wheel bearings.

How often to replace wheel bearings?

As the bearings work in tandem with the wheel’s rotation, they’re subject to high temperatures and wear and tear.

Depending on the quality of the parts, and the driving conditions and loads, wheel bearings have an average lifespan of 135,000 km to 160,000 km.

How to replace wheel bearings

Replacing a vehicle’s wheel bearings is a labour-intensive job that requires specialised tools.

Due to the component’s tight fit in the wheel hub, problems can arise with the removal and installation of the unit.
