Wheel bearing services

From the hub assembly to the spindle to the gaskets, the wheel bearing system in your vehicle is what helps to ensure a smooth ride. The tyres are turning at such high speeds that without wheel bearings the ride would certainly not be smooth. Prevent loud noises and a rumbling in the vehicle by making a service appointment at Kiwi French Automotive today!

With so many moving parts in the vehicle, it can help to understand what these small parts do. Here is a quick glossary of some of the most common items in the wheel bearing system:

  • Hub Assembly: Connection between the drive axle and the brakes. This part may contain brake sensors.
  • Spindle: Attaches the hub assembly system to the suspension system.
  • Wheel Bearings: Small metal balls which are coated in grease and help the tyres to rotate smoothly.
  • Roller Thrust Bearings: Control the load of the axle on the vehicle.

Some of the red flags that your vehicle is experiencing wheel bearing issues include:

  • Loud noises can come from the vehicle when the sealant or gaskets begin to break down.
  • Broken seals can cause a rumbling feeling in the vehicle.
