› WHEEL BEARINGS
When wheel bearings become worn one of the first symptoms is they start to become noisy. Initially they will make a low level hum sound. As they get worse that noise can become a continual loud grinding sound. This all happens because the grease in the bearing has dried up and no longer lubricates the moving parts. If the bearing is left too long in this state it will overheat and can even collapse. If you suspect you may have a noisy bearing we offer a free test to see if replacement is necessary.

› STEERING JOINTS
Precise steering is very dependent on the joints being in good condition. Any wear can cause erratic handling and in extreme circumstances accidents! If your steering feels like it is wandering or there is a knocking noise from the front when you hit bumps, you may have a problem with the jointing. For peace of mind ask us, we'll check if there's a problem, and it's free!
CV Joints or Constant Velocity are only found on front wheel drive or 4x4 vehicles. Usually the first sign you have of wear is a knocking sound when the steering is on or near full lock as you accelerate.
CV Boots or Gaiters keep the grease inside the CV Joint. If they split or tear the grease will come out and leave the joint running dry, which will cause rapid wear.
