Automotive Wheel Bearings Bearing Basics Things roll better than they slide. Rolling friction has less resistance that sliding friction. Parts last longer! Bearings do this by providing smooth balls or rollers, and inner and outer surfaces for the them to roll against.

Automotive Wheel Bearings


Bearing basics l.jpg

Bearing Basics

  • Things roll better than they slide. Rolling friction has less resistance that sliding friction. Parts last longer!

  • Bearings do this by providing smooth balls or rollers, and inner and outer surfaces for the them to roll against.

  • These balls or rollers “bear” the load.

  • Two kinds of loading – Radial and Thrust


Radial loads l.jpg

Radial Loads

  • Radial loads have the load pulling from one side


Thrust loads l.jpg

Thrust Loads

  • Thrust loads have the weight of the entire load applied to the surface of all the bearing.


Roller bearings l.jpg

Roller Bearings

  • Can handle very heavy radial loads. Load is spread out over a large area

  • 3 types – Flat, tapered and needle


Ball bearings l.jpg

Ball Bearings

  • Most common type

  • Can handle both radial and thrust loads of moderate weight

  • Very small contact point

Hub cartridge bearings l.jpg

Hub/Cartridge Bearings

  • Cartridge – Sealed, pressed in place

  • Two rows of ball bearings

  • Used on both front and rear wheels

Front Hub Bearing

  • Hub – Sealed, Bolted in place

  • Two rows of ball bearings

  • Has integral ABS sensor

  • Splinted to Axle shaft

  • Contains flange for wheel to bolt up to


Rear hub bearing l.jpg

Rear Hub Bearing

  • Hub – Sealed, Bolted in place

  • Two rows of ball bearings

  • Has integral ABS sensor

  • Contains flange for wheel to bolt up to


Bearing service l.jpg

BEARING SERVICE

  • Should use brass drift punch

  • Should use bearing driver whenever possible

  • Clean bearing and race

  • Pack new grease in bearing

  • Use high temp grease on disc brake equipped car.
