    New Wheel Hub Assembly & Repairs Hamilton

    What does the wheel hub assembly do?

    Located between the drive axle and brake drum/rotor on each wheel, the wheel hub assembly is an important component that supports the rest of the wheel. The wheel hub assembly holds the wheels/tyres in place, allowing them to turn freely and rotate smoothly at all times.

    The wheel hub assembly is often referred to as the hub bearing or wheel hub unit.

    Any damage to the wheel hub assembly can greatly affect your car’s steering and braking capabilities, as well as causing uneven tyre wear. In extreme cases, the wheel can separate from the assembly, which can cause you to lose control of your vehicle while driving.

    Why the wheel hub assembly is important >

     

    Symptoms of a damaged wheel hub assembly:

    Uneven tyre wear – You may find that your car’s tyres are wearing unevenly. This means that one set of tyres needs replacement much more quickly. This is often due to wheel hub damage.

    Less responsive steering – Your car’s steering may take longer to respond to turns. This is a safety hazard because your car needs to be able to quickly swerve if necessary.

    Car steers to one side when braking – If your car pulls to one direction when the brakes are applied, it could mean that a wheel hub is due for replacement.

    Grinding noise – A damaged wheel hub may produce a loud grinding noise when you are driving.

     

    Wheel hub preventative maintenance:

    Wheel hub assemblies are replaced in pairs. This is because if one of them is worn to the point of needing replacement, the other won’t be far behind. This is a form of preventative maintenance that can save you paying for twice as much labour when the other wheel assembly gives out.
