Our expert insights into wheel bearing replacement in Swanley

Our expert insights into wheel bearing replacement in Swanley

What does a wheel bearing do?

A wheel bearing is a crucial part of the wheel assembly that connects the wheel and the axle. It is a circle of ball bearings secured in a ring called a 'race'. A wheel bearing enables the wheel to rotate smoothly with minimal friction.

What are the signs of a bad wheel bearing?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your wheel bearing:

  • If you notice a grinding, grating or humming noise coming from your wheel or tyre. This noise usually increases with acceleration or as the vehicle turns.
  • A car that feels loose as you drive it - your steering seems less responsive or less precise than usual.
  • Steering wheel vibration which changes with speed or as your car turns.

What happens during a wheel bearing replacement?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Jack the car safely and inspect the wheel with the faulty bearing.
  • Replace the faulty bearing, if necessary.
  • Refit the bearing and wheel.
  • Torque the wheel to the correct pressure. This is set by the car manufacturer.
  • Test drive the car.
  • If necessary, they will make any final adjustments.

    Fantastic Service from the first phone call with Steve through to getting the car back, parked in my carport by Wayne. I use my car a lot and I used to hate the MOT date on the horizon when Im busy at work, but Fixter has honestly changed my perceptions completely. Now I can look forward to knowing ...

    Great reliable service. The local Fixter Hero has great customer service skills and always arrives on time. The work is done in a timely manner and my car comes back early or on time, with a clean. Would recommend the service to family and friends.

    Fantastic service today. The car was collected and returned exactly to the times I wished and the extra job I requested had been carried out. The car had been cleaned inside and out also. Great work.
