  • You need to stop giving automotive advice. This isn't the 70's, cars are far more complicated and half the stuff you say is bogus or doesn't apply. I manage a European auto repair shop and working on cars for 25+yrs, even I don't go around giving unsolicited automotive repair advice.

  • These people that suggesting that you change both wheel bearings must like wasting money. Only change the part that is bad. person might’ve hit a curb that’s probably why it went. I’ve had cars were wheelbearings have never gone and had north of 250,000 miles on them. These people sound like well one ball joint went might as well change them all.

    White KnightWhite Knight2 days ago
  • Using the swerving method is definitely very good for diagnosing which side the wheel bearing that needs to be replaced is on. If ya turn left and hear it it’s the right . If you turn right and hear it . It’s the left

  • Well, not every day do you find that you can do something better than the master because today I have a better way to check that. Jack up the front right or left wheel independently just like you did. Instead of shaking to struggle to listen which requires a professional or keen ear to tell the difference, get back in the car and engage your parking break/foot break/ hand break. Then start your vehicle and put it in drive. DO NOT STEP ON THE GAS PEDAL OR THE BREAKS. The suspended wheel will start rotating and if it's the one with worn out bearings, even a blind person with not so good hearing would tell because the noise would be amplified.

(4x4 jcak stands both ends) Use long screwdriver 🪛or prybar..put car in gear (with someone inside just in case) hold tool to the knuckle and other end to your ear 👂 . Bingo! You will easily be able to hear it

  • In the back it is the other way arround when I go left my noise is gone but when I go right it gets louder so I replaced the left back bearing and now its gone. I can explain it too. When you go left the hole weight goes to the right wheel and when you go right the weight goes to the left wheel. But I dont understand why its the other way in the front can someone explain??

  • Just so I'm in the understanding you wiggle the wheel that is off the ground and if it wobbles that is indicative of a bad wheel bearing?.... funny though I was always taught to use a bar under the raised tire to check for a bad bearing. And what you show is a check for a bad tie rod end or lesser a ball joint. (Also the bar under the tire method can also show a bad ball joint).

  • I had a bad wheel bearing without play in it and no noise or resistance when spinning the wheel with my hands. Jacked up the car so only one wheel is in the air, started it, and accelerated it so the wheel spun until the speedometer showed 60 kph. Turned off the engine with car in neutral, and you could hear which bearing was bad while the wheel was still spinning.

  • What makes the wheel bearing fail. Is it a specific driving habit or maintenance

    Polat AlemdarPolat Alemdar4 days ago
  • But when you turn right, the left wheel has more weight and vise versa. So based on that troubleshooting you would think the right side is bad.

    iLikeWafflesiLikeWaffles4 days ago
    • Also, you push and pull on the wheel with your hand at the 12 and 6 positions on the tire, not side to side as that would be steering play (tie rod, steering rack, etc)

      Jon BartramJon BartramDay ago
    • @iLikeWaffles that’s what I was taught too. If swerving to the left, more pressure on the right indicating a bad rf wheel bearing. And it doesn’t always have to have visual play to be bad.

    • @AftermathXJ220 thanks this is what I've seen in the past

      iLikeWafflesiLikeWaffles2 days ago
    • Bearings make noise from worn races & will make more noise the more weight you put on them like when a vehicle is leaning in a turn onto a bad bearing. If the bearing is so loose inside that it makes noise - your whole wheel would come off the vehicle.

      AftermathXJ220AftermathXJ2202 days ago
    • My 2 cents: When turning, the assembly for the outside wheel is going to compress, tightening things up and reducing any slack or play. The inside wheel is going to experience the opposite effect, which would increase (or emphasize) the amount of play you might have. Now that I think about it, I better check my wheel bearings too.

    The KhanThe Khan4 days ago
  • Wait, if you swerve right that shifts weight onto the drivers side wheel, if you swerve left that shifts weight to the passenger side wheel. Wouldn't the bearing be more noisy with more weight on it than less?

    Cody SimpsonCody Simpson4 days ago
    • Long lasting, durable, and reliable are all words that can be used to describe toyotas but none of them mean the same thing as indestructible. If you drive a Toyota hard and/or don't maintain it well it will not last like it should and even under normal usage they will still require repairs over time.

      thomas locatellithomas locatelli3 days ago
  • If your vehicle has oversize or wide offset wheels, your bearing's side loading has increased substantially. I just throw the smaller ones away every 2 to 3 years, as they were failing about that often anyway.

    • @Obito Uchiha i agree but here in europe its 95% of the time noise when spinning that you can almost always hear just by spinning the wheel. Idk if europe and american cars have different wheel bearings

      SharpshotSharpshotDay ago
    • @Sharpshot I disagree. But agree. Yes you sometimes may be able too hear a bad wheel bearing. Sometimes you’ll need a automotive stethoscope because you can’t hear any noise but can feel it. Shaking of the wheel up and down gives you a clear indication if either the lower/upper ball joint is bad or the wheel bearing.

      Obito UchihaObito UchihaDay ago
    • @Obito Uchiha wheel bearing are usually noise when spinning. Left to right is steering kluckle or power steering and in and out is control arm

    • And his turn method was backward, turn to the left puts pressure on the right, turn to right puts pressure on the left.

  • If it's the left wheel bearing going out, wouldn't swerving to the right make it louder? Because when swerving to the right, more weight is being transfered to the left. I had a rear wheel bearing starting to make noise on my Toyota 4Runner and doing exactly what I said above, I was able to tell the mechanic which wheel bearing I thought it was and they confirmed I was correct.

      Husspower enthusiastHusspower enthusiast4 days ago
    • @Husspower enthusiast From my experience (admittedly a sample size of 1), what Scott said is backwards. He's saying that when swerving to the left, the left wheel bearing makes more noise. From what happened to me I would think swerving right would make the body roll to the left increasing pressure on the left wheel bearing therefore making it louder. When you rewatched, what did you realize?

      JensAlanJensAlan4 days ago
