Wheel bearings

Wheel bearings

The wheel bearings are an important component of the wheel drive system of the vehicle that must be maintained in very good conditions. Their main functions are to allow the drive wheels to rotate with minimal resistance and carry the weight of the vehicle. To be able to perform both tasks, the bearings should be in very good condition.

Over time, the grease in the bearings loses their properties, and this may be the reason for their overheating and wear. As a result noise and play can appear. 

Noise can vary in its strength and depends on speed, but the bearing must be replaced if it appears. Untimely change of the wheel bearing could lead to blocking or falling out of the wheel.

As part of the wheel drive system, bearings perform two main functions - beear the weight of the car and provide minimal friction while wheel rotation. For proper and long-term performance of these functions proper installation and subsequent maintenance of the wheel bearings play a crucial role. In non sealed bearings it is recommended inspection, cleaning and lubrication every 35,000 km. In this way the life of the wheel bearing is protected from contamination that may lead to its wear. Quantity and quality of lubricant also has a great influence on the correct and continuous operation of the wheel bearings. Use grease suitable for bearing hubs and follow the prescribed amount. Using too much lubricant can lead to overheating of the bearing and its early wear.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The first sign for trouble with wheel bearings usually is the noise in the wheel area. Noise from wheel bearings typically is proportional to the velocity and do not change in acceleration changes, maintaining the same speed or stop as opposed of noises in differential, transmission or axles.
 
Problem with wheel bearing can be detected in work on brakes or wheel alignment. That’s why is desirable when changing brake pads to check bearings and seals to be replaced. If the problem identified in one bearing is recommended to be replaced the pair, just because both are working under the same conditions.
