Re: Wheel Bearings
Basically I have noticed what appears to be grease coming from the CV boot on the driver's side of the car. It doesn't appear cracked or damaged but rather the grease seems to have squirted/fell below and onto the flat bracket that joins the chassis to the centre of the wheel.
Can't find a fault, someone suggested maybe oil or dirt in there but nothing identifiably obvious. Or perhaps the seal is not as tight as it should be, though it doesn't appear to look out of place/loose.
Secondly, a rubber component which has a large bolt through it. Seems like it would absorb vibration and flex from the wheel to the chassis. One of them appears to have cracks forming and the other looks perished to be honest. I read on another page that they may have to be pressed out.
I am the second owner and neither has treated her poorly. 2010 plated with only 55,000km on the clock. Has Pedders suspension with larger tyres, but I would hope this would have prevented wear/damage. Rarely driven off-road and only once hit a roo (passenger's side which only needed the bumper replaced).
Anyone provide approx costs for fixing the above problems? Happy to take to a mechanic, but don't want to be ripped off. Any chance this may fall under warranty, having not driven very far (ave 11,000km/yr). I am unsure how long the warranty is good for, but I think it was for only 3 years.
Thanks for any advice,
