Hub bearings and bearing supports are usually installed between the wheel and the axle.
A wheel bearing is a spherical rolling bearing, usually composed of an inner ring, an outer ring, balls and a cage. They are mounted between the wheel and the axle to support
the rotation of the wheel. Hub bearings usually need to bear a lot of load and friction during driving, so they must be maintained and replaced frequently.
A bearing mount is a bracket that holds a bearing in place and is usually mounted on an axle. They can help stabilize hub bearings and make them easier to install and
maintain. Bearing supports are usually made of cast iron Or made of aluminum, it has enough strength and durability to withstand the vibration and shock during the running of
In general, the bearings between the wheels and axles are an important part of the normal operation of the vehicle, and their quality and reliability directly affect the
safety and performance of the vehicle. Therefore, in choosing When selecting and replacing hub bearings and bearing supports, high-quality products must be selected, and they
must be installed and maintained correctly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
So what does a bad wheel bearing sound like？
- Symptoms of broken front wheel bearings: After the front wheel bearings of the car are damaged, there will be continuous friction and collision sounds from the corresponding positions of the chassis wheels when driving;
- It will cause abnormal friction between the brake hub and the brake pad, which will greatly increase the driving resistance. In severe cases, it will also damage the mechanism of the wheel and cause the wheel hub to fall off.
- Symptoms of broken rear wheel bearings: The wheels will shake when the car is running, the vibration of the whole vehicle will increase, and the bearings will be damaged, there will be abnormal noises, and the rolling will not be smooth, resulting in power failure. The biggest impact of this is that the vibration of the car body will intensify, and there will be abnormal noises.
If you find that your car has the above problems, it is recommended that you go to the car shop for repairs in time to avoid accidents！
