Wheel bearing

How do you tell if the wheel bearings are bad? If you remove the rotor and turn the hub should they make any noise? Do the leak greese when they start to go bad?

My truck has a bad pull when braking. The dealer has replace a ton of parts but has been un able to fix the problem. I think it is the wheel bearings.

Re: Wheel bearing

To my knowledge the the most reported sign ( also how I found out) is a clunk or click when turning..while driving [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img] Then a terrible sound while driving strait [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img] Place your hand on the hub after a drive for a temp check (allow for braking temps).I will also say the dr side goes 1st 9 outa 10 times to the pass side [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sick.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/depressed.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif[/img]

Your wheel bearing/hub assembly is toast, or soon to be. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Get it replaced before it fails catastrophically. (Wheel passing you on the highway, etc, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img])

Re: Wheel bearing

The bearing may infact be toast but the slinging grease only means the rear dust boot popped off.

Re: Wheel bearing

So you are saying that the seals are removeable from this non servicable bearing?

It that is the case then why don't people pop this dust boot off and greese the bearings?
