Wheel Bearings


Hi guys.

Our X-Trail is on around 100K km's.

We are getting a loud "burring" sound when the car goes over a certain speed, it sounds like the tyres making road noise, but the tyres are close to standard and should be quiet.

My only other suspicion is that the noise if from wheel bearings. Has anyone had theirs done? If so, how much? Would I be better off doing all 4 of them? Or just the one that needs to be replaced?

Cheers.
Oscar

Re: Wheel Bearings


Is anyone able to confirm a way of testing if the wheel bearings are worn is by jacking up the wheel and seeing how much play of the wheel there is side-to-side?

That is correct Rich, grab the wheel from the top and bottom and see how much free play there is, if there is too much, chances are the wheel bearing is shot.

It is also very important to check the centre hub locking pin and see that it is still in place.

Yeah I think I'll take the car to my workshop and throw it on the hoist and check that out.

Are the symptoms of the hub locking pin and wheel bearings similar?

Re: Wheel Bearings


The loose or missing locking pin, allows the hub nut to loosen, in turn allowing the bearing to loosen which leads to it destroying itself.

Sweet - I will have a look into this further.

Is this very common?? Still no factory recall or anything like that for the design fault right? I read through the previous instance of this happening to another forum member.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Wheel bearings can be damaged and worn without being loose or slack. Sometimes bearings get a worn or rough spot on either the 'race' or the balls which causes noise and or roughness.

A good test is to, after a reasonable run, to put your hand on the wheel hub to compare the temperature of all four wheels. A wheel with a worn bearing will be a lot hotter than the others as any rough/worn spot will cause heat.

This is a good way of finding out which wheel has a noisy bearing if you are getting noise that you are suspicious of.

Of course, bearings can all wear evenly and become loose without having a rough/worn spot in which case checking for looseness is the way to go.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Another way to check which bearing is noisy, is to drive on a smooth road at the speed at which it makes noise, then turn from side to side, (like a race car warming tyres), a pronouced noise while turning right would normally indicate a Left Side bearing had gone, noise deminished while turning right would normally indicate a Right Side bearing has gone, all vica-versa for turning to the left.
Hope this helps.
