About Wheel Hub Carriers
A Fiat wheel hub carrier is mounted to the suspension and steering system and as its name suggests it holds or carries the hub assembly. The hub carrier is able to move up and down with the suspension, and also to move left and right allowing the front wheels to steer via movement of the steering gear.
The hub carrier is generally attached to the suspension using ball joints which allow it to move up and down freely as the car travels over the ground. The steering gear is linked to the carrier with a steering arm, also connected using ball joints to allow flexibility as the suspension moves up and down.
A Fiat wheel hub carrier is cast piece of solid metal so generally very strong and robust, and as it has no moving parts is generally very reliable. However, a light impact such as hitting a curb can bend or deform the carrier, causing misalignment of the wheel hub assembly.
Additionally the connecting ball joints for the suspension and steering are prone to wear and will likely need to be replaced over time.
- While the name Fiat is an acronym of 'Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino', it also translates to 'so be it' in Italian!
- Most Fiats are still manufactured in Italy, but the second-largest producer is Brazil. That's because Fiats are the most popular car make in Brazil, and there are more sales of Fiats there than all of the other manufacturers combined.
- During the extended car chase in the film The Italian Job, the Mini Coopers and police Alfa Romeos drive around the rooftop track of the Fiat factory in Turin. Fiat actually offered the
- film studio all the cars they needed, but the film company went for the Mini instead. However, a Fiat car does show up in the film, driven and owned by mafia boss Altabani.
- As a car accessory that should be seen much more than it is, the Fiat 500L came with its own coffee maker. The espresso machine would have made those morning commutes far easier.
