Wheel bearing


Recommended Posts

If a wheelbearing is still loose with up to an inch of movement, after you have tightened up the bearing, What is wrong,

Is it the bearings worn or hub or both,

Is it unusual for the hub to wear.

Are you sure it's the wheel bearing ? If it's the front axle you need to check the movement is in the wheel bearing and not in the swivel upper or lower bearing.

If it is the wheel bearing and it is still slack when fully tight you need to replace the bearings.

Ok, It looks like i have my answer.

The vehicle in question is actully a trailer, on leaf springs, so there is nothing else to go wrong, so it looks like it is the bearings.
