Wheel Bearing Replacement Service

Wheel Bearing Replacement Service in Detroit, MI

Preventative maintenance is so important to any vehicle. A lot of it is on a schedule. You can browse through the owner’s manual and see exactly when you need each service. It’s nice and easy. Still, there are some services that aren’t on a precise schedule. Things like brakes wear at their own pace, so it’s important to know how to recognize when these services are due. One such issue that eventually plagues every vehicle is the wheel bearing set. These little guys are extremely important, but a lot of us aren’t sure what they do or when they need attention.

Importance of Your Wheel Bearings

Wheel bearings are an integral part of your vehicle’s axle system. These are the spinning devices that actually allow the axle to spin, in turn spinning the wheels themselves. Without these high-precision devices, your car can’t go anywhere. Over the life of the vehicle, the bearings will receive wear and tear. As they degrade from use, they can have numerous negative impacts on the vehicle’s overall health, so it’s a good idea to replace them before wear reaches a problematic state. A wheel bearing replacement service simply swaps the old, worn bearings for new ones.

When Do I Need New Bearings?

There are several indicators that will let you know your wheel bearings are past their prime. The most severe warning sign is grinding or growling noises coming from the wheels. If you hear that, it’s time to schedule service immediately. Your bearings are on the brink, and if they fail while the car is driving, it can be very dangerous.

Earlier warning signs include extra play in the wheel, vibration in the steering wheel or a lack of smoothness when you turn. All of these are caused by distortions in the bearing that can lead to vibrations or even clunky rotations. When the bearings begin to wear, they can create uneven driving conditions. These conditions can cause premature wear on tires, control arm bushings and plenty of other components of the suspension system. If you notice any of the signs that your wheel bearings are struggling, it’s best to get the car to a mechanic soon.
