About Wheel Bearings
A BMW wheel bearing is an essential component of the car’s hub assembly and is responsible for the smooth rotation of the wheel on its axle.
Most modern cars use sealed bearings consisting of an inner, central and outer race housing 2 sets of bearings (inner and outer). They are lubricated with high temperature grease and sealed to prevent the ingress of moisture and debris.
The sealed bearing unit is pressed into the centre of the hub assembly.
There are generally 2 types of wheel bearing, roller for driven wheels and race or tapered for non-driven wheels.
Due to the high levels of friction and movement the wheel bearing is prone to wear. This is especially likely when water or debris enters the unit. While sealed bearings are maintenance free older style bearings should be regularly greased to prolong life.
Worn bearings should be replaced as soon as possible to prevent additional wear to other components of the vehicle including tyres, hub assembly and suspension.
- Did you know that BMW built a Lamborghini? The two popular companies decided to make a race car together, but Lamborghini pulled out during the manufacturing process. BMW carried on, and the final result was the original BMW M1 supercar.
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
- Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
- The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
- The main headquarters for BMW in Munich is designed and shaped to look like car parts. There was a whole new 'four-cylinder' building added on in 1973, and there's definitely the look of an engine about the architecture.
