Wheel Bearing Replacement

Nissan Wheel Bearing Replacement Service

Wheel Bearing Replacement Service

Wheel bearings are necessary to reduce the friction between the wheel hub and the wheel assembly. As the wheel turns, the bearings stop the heat buildup caused by excess friction and it allows the wheels to rotate smoothly. This, in turn, makes for a nicer ride when you drive your Nissan around the streets of St. Joseph, Missouri. The bearings can wear out and need to be replaced. A bad wheel bearing can severely affect your ability to control your car when driving. Signs of a bad bearing include:

  • Grinding, knocking, humming, popping, or clicking sounds coming from the wheel
  • The wheel will vibrate – especially at higher speeds
  • The car will pull abnormally to one side when applying the brakes
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Brake pads and rotor will show uneven wear
  • ABS will fail

Wheel Bearing Process

When a bearing goes bad, it needs to be replaced. This is a job best performed by trained individuals who are familiar with changing wheel bearings. The tire, brake assembly, and rotor have to be removed to expose the wheel hub. The hub is then taken off of the axle and disassembled to expose the bearing assembly. The bearings are removed using a grinder or a hammer. After the old bearings have been removed and the inside of the bearing assembly has been cleaned, fresh grease is applied and the new bearings are set in place. The bearings must be aligned up properly to allow the assembly to function as intended. The bearings are tapped into place using a hammer. The wheel hub and assembly are put back together and you will be ready to get back on the road within a short period.
