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!



Yep, the price would include replacing the hubs as well. Replacing the wheel bearings by themselves is not that expensive.

Re: Wheel Bearings


I suspect one of my left wheel bearings is starting to go. At lowish speed (say 40 - 60 kph) when the left side of the vehicle is loaded in a wide turn or on a road with lots of camber I get an intermittent faint knocking like there is something on the tyre. At higher speeds, or in tight turns it goes away. Is this consistent with anyone else's experiences with worn wheel bearings?

Like GS Rider posted, when I jack the wheels up there is no play and the wheels seem to rotate smoothly. This makes it difficult to take somewhere to get diagnosed, especially when it is intermittent.

I have got a couple of quotes to replace the bearings at $350 - $400 per wheel. I have only 90,000 on the clock, but unfortunately I am well out of warranty time wise. Can anyone recomend a mechanic in Sydney's north west who can diagnose whether it really is a wheel bearing?

Re: Wheel Bearings


Many cars go through their entire life on one set of wheel bearings. It might be useful if X-Trail owners who have had to change bearings relatively early, could indicate in their posts, if they go off-road often and / or have done water crossings !

Mate I think you have a worn CV not a wheel bearing.
Does it sound like a clicking noise, like something is stuck on your tyre?
A worn bearing will usually make a noise all the time, not only while turning.

Or a split CV boot with all grease gone.

Re: Wheel Bearings


My problem turned out to be tyres. I rotated the tyres front to back and the problem went away. It was a bit of an odd one for tyres, given that the problem was at lowish speed only and usually when turning right. I think one of the front tyres may have had a small raised section on the tread near the sidewall (so it was only noticeable when cornering in one direction).

Re: Wheel Bearings


Quite common - tyres get "set" in them, a unique wear pattern to each car corner driving style etc. Rotating tyres regularly solves the problem. Steering may feel like it needs to be aligned though.

Re: Wheel Bearings


Hi all,

I've had the typical "wa-wa" noise going on in the front left, getting slightly louder over a couple of months. I guessed bearings or tyres.

When I got my new spare, I had the front two swapped and re-balanced (for free, thanks Bob-Jane!). The noise stayed with the left.

On a recent trip down the Kakadu highway (a windy road at times), I noticed on right-turns it got louder, and left-turns it got softer. I'm assuming this is from the extra load put on / off the bearing as it turns into the corner. I've booked it in to get the front-left bearing replaced next week, as well as a service.

The mechanic said if it's a bearing kit it could be $3-400 incl. labour, but a hub kit could be $4-500 incl. labour. From reading these posts the exy just provides bearing kits right?

Should I get both front bearings done, or leave the front right until 100,000kms?

The other thing is, it's only done 59,000 kms, and it's a 2007 model. I've been having a bit of trouble finding what warranty it might have left (if any). Can I still go to my usual service centre (I really like them).

thanks guys!
