Wheel bearings are an important part of any wheel setup on all cars, trucks, utes, vans, motorcycles and even trailers. Wheel bearings allow your wheel to glide smoothly around the axle assembly as your wheel rotates, minimising friction with the axle and allowing your car to roll effortlessly down the road. Keeping on top of wheel bearing maintenance is essential in order to avoid costly breakdowns which can leave you stranded on the side of the road or even create hazards if they decide to throw in the towel as you're driving. Luckily, there are some tell-tale signs which indicate a bad wheel bearing. For a quick how-to on detecting wheel bearing failure, see the rough guide below.

How do I tell when my wheel bearings need replacing?

  • Noises - a bad noise from your wheel bearing indicates it's time to fit a replacement. The types of noises to listen out for are groaning, grinding, grating or other metal-on-metal type sounds. The noise will generally become more noticeable either with speed or steering input.
  • Loose steering - Any slack or play in the wheel bearing will transfer through the steering rack and ultimately to the steering wheel. If you notice excessive steering wheel play, 'loose' feeling or steering wheel vibration, it's time to check your bearings.
  • Steering pulling to the side - Slack in wheel bearings can also affect your wheel alignment as you drive and result in the car pulling to one side. This can be an intermittent characteristic, however sometimes is consistent.

Now you might be wondering how do I check my wheel bearings? The best method to check suspect wheel bearings will require you to first jack up the car so the wheel is in the air. From here, place your hands on the wheel at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock checking for any play in the wheel vertically. It is important to check the wheel this way to eliminate a false reading from sloppy steering components on the front wheels.
