Car Wheel Bearings and Safety
Car safety is the most important factor for any driver. You need to know that the vehicle you are driving is completely safe and road worthy, complete with all safety checks that are needed. You should never take a car on the road that is experiencing problems like unusual noises, loose steering, or crunching sounds when you break. Whilst many of these issues might be cause by a wheel bearing and is easily rectified, it’s important that it is done before you take your car on the road.
You should have a complete car health check on a regular basis anyway, and sooner if you have noticed unusual symptoms. You can book in for a service and check outside of your MOTs, and it should be a simple process to replace any bearings that have come loose or that are getting older. Bearings can last up to 100,000 miles, but they might not, so always play it safe.
