Frequently asked questions about wheel bearing replacement & repairs in Newcastle

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

What does a wheel bearing replacement in Newcastle 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.

Is the wheel bearing checked during an MOT test?
