Fahren Insight on Wheel Bearing Kit Replacement
FAHREN provides some technical insight on wheel bearing kits (WBKs) as part of their comprehensive and diverse component portfolio.
SIGNS FOR REPLACEMENT
There are several symptoms that indicate a failing WBK. The most common symptoms include:
These symptoms are likely to surface as a result of poor installation, damage from an accident or a damaged wheel bearing seal. A damaged seal allows moisture and debris to enter the bearing, leading to failure over time.
Most importantly, never attempt to take a hub unit apart before mounting. This will damage the raceways and seals, destroying the bearings that will lead to failure.
