Geddes Automotive Auckland service & replace car bearings & noisy wheel bearings for vans & trucks. We fix car bearing problems.

WHEEL BEARINGS FOR CARS, VANS & TRUCKS.

How to test for a wheel bearing noise? We need to jack the suspect wheel off the ground and spin the wheel. If the wheel will not spin freely it is because there is too much drag on the brakes or bearings to allow testing. Sometimes we need to move the brake pads to clear the discs to reduce the drag. You would normally be able to hear a growling moaning type noise if there is a car wheel bearing problem.

You can often hear a front wheel bearing or rear wheel bearing noise when driving on a smooth road.

ALL AUTOMOTIVE BEARING REPLACEMENT SERVICE FOR YOUR: CAR, VAN or TRUCK.

There are different types of car & van wheel bearings; some are a sealed bearing unit. Some are roller bearings in a cage. This type is tapered with a shell either side. (Refer to the top photo.)

This type can be packed with grease and can be adjusted. The sealed type cannot be adjusted or repacked with grease. They both usually need to be pressed out and new bearings pressed in. What ever type they are we can replace a car wheel bearing and a car & van bearing of all types.

Most wheel bearings range in price from $40 to $90 except hub type bearings.

The cost to fit most shell type bearings ranges from $80 to $110 plus GST.

To replace rear wheel bearings on rear wheel drive cars is more costly. We have to remove the rear brakes, backing plate and axle. The wheel bearings with oil seals need to be pressed off and the new ones pressed back on then refitted to the car, van or truck in the reverse procedure.

They usually cost around $200 plus GST for rear car or van wheel bearings.

Geddes Automotive Ltd has the equipment to repack wheel bearings on your car van & truck.

The prices quoted are estimates only. The vehicle make model, year, registration and chassis numbers are required to confirm these prices. There may be extra costs if there are other damage or parts are seized.
