Symptoms of a failing wheel bearing
Technicians need to be aware of the symptoms that could point to a deteriorating wheel bearing, according to Comline Auto Parts (Comline).
Steering judder, reduced acceleration, grinding, unevenly worn tyres, unbalanced wheels and vehicle pulling are all potential indicators that a wheel bearing is failing.
To undertake quick and efficient replacement of the failing part, technicians will require a wheel bearing kit, complete with the relevant accessories required for the specific application – precisely the solution that Comline says it has to offer.
Comline claims its range of wheel bearing kits deliver a “competitive, no-hassle, high-quality option” for workshops. Production of a Comline kit is governed by strict tolerances, with facilities operating to ISO 9001 certified standards and in compliance with TÜV regulations.
Lightweight, high-carbon steel for a robust, heat resistant and long-lasting service life, combined with stringent and extensive in-house testing, ensures motor factors can be 100 per cent confident in the product they are selling, and technicians can be similarly assured of a simple and quality fit, according to Comline.
In short, Comline boasts that its wheel bearing kits are premium quality products delivered to market with the promise of a competitive edge.
Wheel bearings play a pivotal role in mobilising all vehicle types; therefore, technicians require the support of a supplier that offers a wide-ranging portfolio – Comline has a range of 600 that spans across European, Japanese and Korean applications.
Depending on the required application, technicians will note Comline wheel bearings that stretch from generation to generation: from the humble, single row ball ‘gen 0’ options, to more complex, dual flange with double row ball ‘gen 3’ variants that are typically found in more contemporary vehicles.
Workshops can be assured that the Comline kit has been developed specifically for the needs of that application, the company says.
To help spread the word about the symptoms of a failing wheel bearing, Comline has produced a short clip that it hopes motor factors and workshops alike can utilise to educate the market.
