Wheel Bearing Services
Wheel bearing problems occur due to excessive loads on the bearing (e.g. potholes) and heat build up due to lack of lubrication. This lack of lubrication creates heat and metal fatigue, which will cause the bearing to fail.

Signs & Symptoms of a Broken Wheel Bearing
The best way to self-diagnose a failed wheel bearing is listening for sounds. If you hear squeals, grinding, whining or other abnormal sounds while you’re driving, it’s important to take it to a wheel bearing specialist. Whether the noises are loud at times and soft at others, it’s a good sign there’s a problem that needs rectifying.
Wheel Bearing Terms To Learn
It’s a good idea to brush up on your car knowledge to understand what each part does. The wheel bearing system is made up of a range of parts, which perform the following:
- Hub Assembly: Connects the brakes and drive axle (may also house the brake sensors)
- Spindle: Connects the hub assembly to the suspension system
