Frequently asked questions about Ford wheel bearing replacement & repairs

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

What does a wheel bearing replacement on my Ford 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 Ford 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 on my Ford?

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.

How often do you replace Ford wheel bearings?

A typical wheel bearing will likely need replacing every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, depending on a number of variables. Remember, wheel bearings should always be serviced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

Wheel bearings are often damaged when a car hits a kerb with some force. But also, because the bearings have to be able to travel as smoothly as possible around the race to help keep your car wheels turning predictably.

Until the late-1990s, it was common for car manufacturers to recommend wheel bearing replacement every 30,000 miles. But while today’s wheel bearings can typically last twice as long, many cars are also doing far higher mileages, so they are subjected to much more wear and tear.

A hard impact against a kerb can easily damage a wheel bearing. So avoiding hitting any kerb is a good way to treat your wheel bearings kindly and prolong their life.

Also, while wheel bearings can withstand lots of wear and abuse, their biggest enemies are heat and water. Heat – which is usually caused by a lack of lubrication, so too will water penetrating the bearings.
