How Do I Know If My Audi Wheel Bearing Needs Replacement?

A worn Audi wheel bearing or Audi wheel bearing hub has a specific symptom. A loud humming noise. When this loud humming noise begins to come from the front or rear wheel area, Audi wheel bearing repair is inevitable.

Loud Audi wheel bearing noise can be tested as follows:
As you drive your Audi at a slower speed (25-35 mph) you'll hear a deep humming or howling noise. As you increase your speed (55-65 mph) the noise will change to a higher pitched whining. This change in pitch indicates that you have a bad Audi wheel bearing.

How to figure out which Audi wheel bearing is making the noise can be tested as follows:
After achieving a speed where the howling noise increases, load either the driver or passenger side of the vehicle. For instance, when turning your Audi around a right hand corner you're loading the vehicle weight onto the left hand side. Listen for the wheel bearing noise to increase and try to determine if it is coming from the front or rear Audi wheel bearing. You can also try swerving your Audi from left to right in a safe area and under safe conditions. Doing this in an empty parking lot can help determine which Audi wheel bearing is worn. If the side that the load is on makes an increased howling noise, this confirms that Audi wheel bearing replacement is necessary. If you're still having a difficult time determining which side the Audi wheel bearing noise is coming from, it may be necessary to replace both the drivers side and passenger side Audi wheel bearing or Audi wheel bearing hub assembly. To learn how to replace an Audi wheel bearing or for Audi wheel bearing installation techniques read the below information.

What Is Critical In Order To Avoid Audi Wheel Bearing Failure And Contribute To The Long Life Of An Audi Wheel Bearing?

Proper installation is the single most critical factor to a long Audi wheel bearing life. Premature wheel bearing failure is caused by incorrect alignment while pressing the bearing into the housing. If incorrect pressure points are used, the misaligned bearing cage will cause premature failure. These mistakes can be made even by the most competent mechanics.

Certain wheel bearings may not be large enough to carry the particular load of your vehicle chassis and may prematurely fail due to this overload. Extreme hot climates and extreme cold climates can effect the viscosity of the Audi wheel bearing grease. It is critical that an Audi wheel bearing be packed with the proper quality and quantity of grease in order to handle these two extremes. Environmental factors such as, road spray (especially salt laden), dust, and dirt can effect the Audi wheel bearing seal. Audi wheel bearing seals should be constructed of high quality material that is impervious to these conditions.

Rear Audi Wheel Bearing Replacement Intervals on Audi A4 S4 (B5 chassis) Quattro Models

There's been discussion amongst (B5 chassis) Audi A4 S4 owners, that they experience rear wheel bearing replacement intervals more frequently. One reason may be the size of the Audi A4 S4 rear wheel bearing, which is 75mm OD. Other Audi models with similar chassis / vehicle weight came with a larger 82mm OD bearing. Due to this smaller 75mm OD size, there is an increase in bearing revolutions, resulting in higher operating temperatures. Over time, high wheel bearing temperatures can cause a break down of wheel bearing grease and may begin to loose lubrication. When lubricating grease is lost the bearing begins to fail, causing play in the bearing ball, cage, and races.

What About Replacing The Audi Wheel Bearings In Pairs Or Sets Of 2?

Replacing your Audi wheel bearing in pairs of 2 is convenient and can save you money in the long run! We've heard of many customers who have replaced one worn front Audi wheel bearing only to find that the other one goes bad a short while later. The same is true with the rear Audi wheel bearing. In most cases you can save money on Audi wheel bearing replacement service costs by replacing both wheel bearings at the same time. Especially on the rear Audi A4 S4 wheel bearings (B5 chassis). If replacing your rear Audi A4 wheel bearings, be sure to replace both sides. You may wish to bookmark this page since we'll soon be updating it to include a link on how to replace the Audi A4 rear wheel bearings.

How To Replace An Audi Wheel Bearing?

Unsure how to change an Audi wheel bearing? Replacing an Audi wheel bearing does require above average mechanical ability. Blauparts recommends that an ASE certified factory trained Audi Vw mechanic install your Audi wheel bearings, using the correct special Audi wheel bearing tools and techniques is necessary for proper installation.

There is NO way to get around using these special tools when replacing any ball bearing style front or rear Audi wheel bearing. The front Audi wheel bearings are ball bearing type. These ball bearing type bearings are made to press fit into the front strut or wheel hub housing. The same is true with the rear Audi wheel bearings, which also require special tools to press the bearing into the wheel hub assembly. However, replacing an Audi wheel bearing hub or tapered roller wheel bearing typically doesn't require any special Audi wheel bearing tools. To determine the Audi wheel bearing replacement method used on your model see the chart below.

Proper installation is the single most critical factor to a long Audi wheel bearing life.
