Frequently asked questions about wheel bearing replacement & repairs in Birmingham
Read our answers to questions about wheel bearing replacement costs, symptoms and more.
What does a wheel bearing replacement in Birmingham involve?
Over time, a damaged wheel bearing can affect your car’s steering, as the weight of the bearings, or any defects in the race can cause your wheels to not sit level with the road. This can lead to uneven and premature tyre wear, and your car behaving unpredictably when turning corners.
Once the problem has been diagnosed, a wheel bearing replacement should be carried out as soon as possible.
What are the signs of a bad wheel bearing?
- When the car vibrates whilst driving.
- When a wheel does not move (bearing has seized).
- When there is a thudding or clunking noise coming from underneath the car.
- When there is a squeaking noise coming from underneath the car.
How long does it take to replace a wheel bearing?
A front wheel bearing replacement on average takes just over 1 hour, but can take anywhere from under 1 hours to 2 hours. A rear wheel bearing replacement takes on average under 1 hour, but can range from under 1 hour to 2 hours. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
Is a worn wheel bearing an MOT failure?
Yes, a worn wheel bearing can lead to an MOT failure as they pose a safety risk. If a wheel bearing wears to much and there's excessive play it can fail and lead to a dangerous situation on the road.

How much does it cost to replace a wheel hub assembly in Birmingham?

What does it sound like when a wheel bearing is going out?
A wheel bearing that's on it's way out will usually produce a clunking, thudding or squeaking noise. The noise will come from one of the wheels on the car where the wheel bearings are fitted. If noise is coming from a wheel bearing it's important to get it checked by a professional mechanic.
Is the wheel bearing checked during an MOT test?
Yes, a wheel bearing will be checked during an MOT test. It is a critical component as it helps to support the weight of the car. A wheel bearing that is excessively rough or with excessive play is a major fault while if the play is found to be so excessive that it is likely to break up or impair directional control then it is classified as a dangerous fault.
Is wheel bearing replacement covered under warranty?
