Worn out wheel bearing

This car has 95000 miles on it. When driving 25-30 mph or more it had pretty obvious rumble or humming noise in the rear. After a quick diagnosis on the hoist, and using my heavy duty press, we verified the culprit. Look at the pitted bearing race on the right. It should be smooth like the one on the left.

  1. Lubricants do play an important role for the maintenance of the bearing. It also prolongs its life significantly.
