Different Types Of Front Vw Wheel Bearings

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

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

Loud front Vw wheel bearing noise can be tested as follows:
As you drive your Vw 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 front Vw wheel bearing.

How to figure out which front Vw 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 Vw 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 front Vw wheel bearing. You can also try swerving your Vw from left to right in a safe area and under safe conditions. Doing this in an empty parking lot can help determine which front Vw wheel bearing is worn. If the side that the load is on makes an increased howling noise, this confirms that front Vw wheel bearing replacement is necessary. If you're still having a difficult time determining which side the front Vw wheel bearing noise is coming from, it may be necessary to replace both the drivers side and passenger side front Vw wheel bearing or front Vw wheel bearing hub assembly.

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

Proper installation is the single most critical factor to a long front Vw 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 front Vw wheel bearing grease. It is critical that a front Vw 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 front Vw wheel bearing seal. Front Vw wheel bearing seals should be constructed of high quality material that is impervious to these conditions.

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

Replacing your front Vw 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 front Vw wheel bearing only to find that the other one goes bad a short while later. The same is true with the rear front Vw wheel bearing. In most cases you can save money on front Vw wheel bearing replacement service costs by replacing both wheel bearings at the same time.

How To Replace a Vw Wheel Bearing?

Unsure how to change a front Vw wheel bearing? Replacing a front Vw wheel bearing does require above average mechanical ability. Blauparts® recommends that an ASE certified factory trained Vw mechanic install your front Vw wheel bearings, using the correct special front Vw 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 Vw wheel bearing. The front Vw 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 Vw wheel bearings, which also require special tools to press the bearing into the wheel hub assembly. However, replacing a front Vw wheel bearing hub or tapered roller wheel bearing typically doesn't require any special front Vw wheel bearing tools. To determine the front Vw wheel bearing replacement method used on your model see the chart below.

Proper installation is the single most critical factor to a long front Vw 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.
