Automotive Parts: Wheel Bearings

Auto Repair For Illinois: Palatine 60067 | Arlington Heights 60004 | Streamwood 60107

Wheel BearingsWheel bearings are designed to both support the weight of a vehicle and allow wheels to rotate. Bearings typically last for about 150,000 miles of driving, although it is important to make sure the seals are leak free, keeping all contaminants out. A damaged bearing can cause grease to leak from the bearings and allow dirt to replace it. If water comes into contact with a cracked bearing, it will cause rust, which is a natural grease contaminant. When a wheel bearing is experiencing a problem, it is typical to hear a rumbling or chirping noise coming from the wheels. Ignoring theses warning signs can result in the fall of a bearing during a drive.
