Symptoms of a Bad Front and Rear Wheel Bearings

Description:

The main function of the wheel bearings is to reduce the amount of friction in the spinning wheels and avoid damage to the tires. Gradually, these bearings wear out and create problems like trembling of wheels, variable movement and loud noises while driving the car. You may go through the following s to be aware of the common symptoms of a bad front and rear wheel bearings. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Symptoms of a Bad Front and Rear Wheel Bearings

Symptoms of a Bad Front and Rear Wheel Bearings
How to Deal with Transmission Leaks in your
Mercedes
2
Cars are equipped with front and rear wheel
bearings in order to reduce the amount of
friction in the spinning wheels.
3
In the absence of the wheel bearings, there would
be a lot of heat generated in the wheels and
tires of the car due to severe friction.
4
The wheel bearings reduce the generation of high
heat by serving as a lubricant for the wheels and
tires.
5
The wheel bearings can be seen installed in the
drive axle of each wheel as well as in the
steering assembly.
6
Usually, the wheel bearings last longer, but
they do start to go bad when they lose their
ability to lubricate the wheels and tires.
7
Below are some of the common symptoms associated
with bad front and rear wheel bearings.
8
Trembling in wheels
9
Worn out wheel bearings always result in
producing a lot of shakiness and vibrations from
the wheels while driving on the road.
10
Such vibrations are more intense as the wheels
are subject to more friction which causes them to
move out of place.
11
Variable movement
12
The car will suddenly slow down on its own as the
worn out wheel bearings do not allow the wheels
to move smoothly.
13
If you let this problem persist, then eventually
the wheels will get totally clogged and not move
unless the bearings are replaced.
14
Grinding noise
15
In the absence of good wheel bearings, there is
going to be a lot of metal contact which will
produce unwanted grinding noises.
16
These grinding noises will get louder as the
car's speed increases and result in generating
too much friction.
17
Tire wear
18
When you drive with bad wheel bearings in the
steering assembly, then the tires will get
unevenly worn which is quite unusual.
19
Bad wheel bearings cause alignment issues and
the tire, which have the most wear is the one
whose wheel bearing needs to be replaced.
20
Steering wheel vibrations
21
The vibrations in the steering wheel can be felt
even at lower speeds when the reason is bad wheel
bearings.
22
The vibration will just increase as you
accelerate and intensify with time, for which the
wheel bearings must be replaced at the earliest.
23
In the end
24
With bad wheel bearings, the wheels and tires
will generate a lot more heat than normal and
will not move smoothly anymore.
25
These are the symptoms that you should not ignore
and fix the issue as soon as possible to avoid
being stranded on the road due to a locked wheel.
