What are the symptoms of a broken wheel bearing

The wheel bearing is a very important part of the automobile wheel. The main function of the wheel bearing is to support the load and provide precise guidance for the rotation of the wheel. It bears both axial load and radial load. Once the car is broken, it will appear. Various failures, let’s take a look at the symptoms of broken wheel bearings and how to determine the inspection methods for broken wheel bearings.

What are the symptoms of a broken wheel bearing? What is the sound of a broken wheel bearing?

The front wheel bearing of the wheel is on the front wheel of the car. If the front wheel bearing of the wheel is damaged, if it is not very serious, the noise will be loud after driving, and the wheel bearing will be broken and the sound will be buzzing, which is different from the tire noise. You can drive for half an hour. After getting off the car, lightly touch the part of the wheel that you think damaged the bearing with the back of your hand. If the bearing is damaged, the heat generated will be very high and it is estimated to be hot. Different from the normal temperature, if it is a decisive replacement. If the damage is severe, heat will be generated faster and will strain your axles and end caps.

Symptoms of wheel bearing damage

First, the wheel shakes when the car runs, and the vehicle shakes aggravated.

The second is that the bearing is damaged and abnormal noise will occur.

Third, the rolling is not smooth, resulting in a decrease in power. The biggest impact is the increased body shake and abnormal noise. It is recommended to replace.

What are the symptoms of a broken wheel bearing and how to judge whether a wheel bearing is broken

  1. Open the car window to see if the sound is coming from outside the car;
  2. After increasing the vehicle speed (when the hum is loud, put the gear position in neutral to let the vehicle coast, and observe whether the noise comes from the engine. If the hum does not change when coasting in neutral, it is mostly a problem with the wheel bearing;
  3. Stop temporarily and get off the car to check whether the temperature of the wheel axle is normal. Touch the four wheels respectively with your hands, and roughly feel whether their temperatures are the same (when the brake shoe and disc gap is normal, the temperature of the front and rear wheels is If there is a gap, the front wheel should be higher), if you feel that the difference is not big, you can continue to drive slowly to the maintenance station;
  4. Use a lift to raise the car (release the handbrake and put in neutral before). When there is no lift, you can use a jack to lift the wheels one by one. It is completely different from other axles. It is easy to tell which axle is the problem with this method.

How to determine the wheel bearing is broken inspection method

(1) Grasp the wheel, push and pull up and down to shake, and check whether the wheel bearing is loose.

(2) When an abnormality is found in the inspection, one person sits on the driver's seat and applies the brake, and the other person grasps the wheel again, pushes and pulls up and down, and shakes. If there is any looseness, it may be caused by excessive looseness of the bearing. Check the bearing. When adjusting the bearing clearance according to the maintenance manual, a certain clearance should be reserved especially for tapered roller bearings, and it should not be too tight, otherwise it will wear out, overheat or burn.
