Wheel bearings are a critical component that allows your hub, tire, and the assemblies to work together in harmony. The bearing works by reducing friction when the wheel spins, but unlike the engine bearings, there’s no constant source of lubrication for them. They’re also located in an area where they receive constant abuse from the road, including rocks, potholes, and the lateral force from making turns. Like most components, these can become worn over time and require a wheel bearing replacement. Here are a few common signs that it may be time for an Audi wheel bearing replacement:
- You hear a grinding or grating noise coming from your wheel or tire, especially if the noise gets louder as you accelerate
- Your car has a “loose feeling” – steering seems less responsive or precise than it normally does
- The car pulls to the left or the right
- Uneven wear on your tires can be an indicator of a bad wheel bearing, especially if you rotate your tires regularly
- Steering wheel vibration that changes with your vehicle’s speed or as you take turns
- Your ABS (Anti-lock brake system) is malfunctioning
It’s rare for wheel bearing to fail immediately after noticing the above signs, but it’s best to avoid driving with a worn bearing for an extended period. As it’s an essential part of the drive-axle and steering system, we recommend an Audi wheel bearing replacement as soon as possible to avoid damage to the system – and to keep you safe on the road!
