Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf
Posted by Anonymous on
You need to take a close look at this .Jack up the wheel so its off the ground .See if moves at all side to side or up and down it should NOT MOVE .
It could have come lose you say you bought it recently so you don't know .Your not going to die because of this but what it could do is a lot of damage to the shaft that this bearing is spinning on called the spindle..
If I wore you remove the bearings bolth sides check the brake pads rotors and calipers .
The way you can tell if a tapered roller bearing is bad is to look for the rollers turning blue this means they have over heated and distorded .
The bearings are cheap compaired to the spindle or CV joint

The first clue is that it makes a noise. If so jack up the wheel and rotate it by hand to see if you feel or hear anything. The final test is to remove the bearing, clean it in gas and inspect the rollers for marks.

Testimonial: "Tank you very much. I brought my car to my mechanic, whom i trust, to have something else done. When he took the car for a ride, he said he heard a noise front left that sounds like a wheel bearing. He took me for a ride and I didn't detect any noise that I haven't heard before. Of course, I don't know how it's supposed to sound like. He said it was a low humming sound. If it is that, should I fix it immediately. Is it dangerous to drive?"
