  1. Diagnosis: If you suspect a wheel bearing issue, common symptoms include noise (grinding, roaring, or clicking) coming from the wheel area, excessive play in the wheel, or uneven tire wear. A mechanic will typically lift the vehicle and spin the wheels to listen for any unusual sounds.
  2. Wheel Removal: The affected wheel is removed, along with the brake caliper and rotor if necessary, to access the wheel bearing.
  3. Bearing Inspection: The wheel bearing is inspected visually and by feel to determine the extent of wear or damage. A worn-out bearing will often feel rough or make noise when rotated by hand.
  4. Bearing Replacement: If the bearing is found to be faulty, it is removed using specialized tools. Depending on the vehicle, this may involve pressing out the old bearing and pressing in a new one, or replacing the entire hub assembly (which includes the bearing).
  5. Hub Assembly Installation: If the bearing is separate from the hub, the new bearing is pressed into the hub. The hub assembly is then reinstalled onto the vehicle.
  6. Reassembly: The brake rotor, caliper, and wheel are reinstalled, and the lug nuts are tightened to the manufacturer’s specifications.
  7. Testing: After the repair, the vehicle is lowered, and the mechanic may road-test it to ensure that the noise or issue is resolved.

Wheel bearing repair can vary in complexity depending on the vehicle make and model. It’s often recommended to replace wheel bearings in pairs (both front or both rear) to ensure balanced wear and performance. If you’re not comfortable with the repair process, it’s best to have it done by a qualified mechanic to ensure it’s done correctly and safely.
