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.

I did this test tonight - and you are correct. My left (I think rear) is dead. When I turn right, the noise dies out.

Fixing it tomorrow emoticon

Cheers fellas.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Hey Oscar,
If you re-read Darcy's explaination, I think turning right and having the noise die out would mean it is a right-side bearing which is bad, not a left-side.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Guys,

I have developed a sound in the front left wheel which is a loud humming noise while braking at high speed, it sounded exactly like a shot bearing for sure cause the humming would be there while driving and just increases while braking.

Took the car to the local mechanic to have a listen and check the bearings, he came back saying that some tyres get to a certain point when they wear out and produce this loud humming noise and more so when there is a load on them (when braking)

He suggested I rotate the tyres and have them balanced and wheel alignment done, am gonna do that tomorrow and see what happens.

He said the bearings are completely fine.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Has anyone changed their own wheel bearings. I have done them on other vehicles but never on one of these.

I was just wondering what it involves and what tools are required? Are the bearings pressed into place or do they just drop out when you take the hub off hub? Are they ball bearings or roller bearings?

Any info would be appreciated?

Re: Wheel Bearings


Greg,

A special press tool is required to pop-out and press-in the wheel bearings.

Bearing specs and part numbers are mentioned in THIS thread.

Re: Wheel Bearings


I have replaced front right wheel bearing in my X-Trail and now all other 3 are due. It's a big job as the whole spindle has to be removed to press the old bearing out and press the new bearing in.

How long did they last? I had my front NS bearing replaced at around 80K kms. The other three are still fine (knock on wood) at 120K kms. I'm wandering how many more Kms I should expect out of them.

I have to agree with the other posters that suggested load testing and measuring the temperatures in acessing a worn bearing. When I jacked up the front wheels there was no freeplay in the wheels , not even a rumble when the wheels where spun.

Re: Wheel Bearings


I would advise against waiting until the front bearings to go bust due to the risks (and very expensive) repair bills involved (see hub separating from axle thread), so it is a good idea to replace BOTH front bearings at 100,000kms and that is exactly what I have done. They were both fine, but I didn't want to take any chances.

The rear bearings however are still fine after 116,000kms.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Fortunately for me the front wheel bearing was done under warranty. The service manager told me retail pricing for the job is usually around $600 for one side, which probably included hub replacement. Ouch!

Jalaski, thats good insurance even more so if the vehicle been subjected to deep river crossings. Are the rear wheel bearings non serviceable like the front?
