Frequently asked questions about BMW wheel bearing replacement & repairs

Read our answers to questions about wheel bearing replacement costs, symptoms and more.

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 BMW wheel bearing?

  • When the car vibrates whilst driving.
  • When a wheel does not move (bearing has seized).
