Mitsubishi is a very popular Japanese automotive brand everywhere you go. Quality, performance, ability, and features, are well compensated in every Mitsubishi vehicle there is in the automotive industry. But we won't be talking about how great their car is, but what one of the components that helps with the ability of this automotives. A car isn't a car without its wheels, and what makes the wheels roll down the road with ease? It's all because of the wheel bearings that it is equipped with.
The Mitsubishi wheel bearing is still in some way a part of your vehicle's suspension. Its purpose is to allow your car's wheels to rotate with, if not all, very minimal friction while supporting the vehicle's weight. To be able to do these purposes, you better make sure that its seal is leak free. This assures you that you're wheel bearings will be in perfect condition because the seal keeps out the contaminants that could cause damage to it. One of its vital components would be the wheel bearing hub. The hub is the one that actually carries the weight of your automotive. This weight is then transferred to the wheels as its rotational motion goes without generating too much friction. Here in the wheel hubs is where you'll find the wheel bearings or ball bearings that are very efficient in holding the weight.
Your Mitsubishi wheel bearing is advised to be repacked with grease every 24,000 miles, and should be checked often. Particularly, wheel bearings are made to last up to 150,000 miles. By then, it should be checked and replaced. However, from its purpose and being under pressure most of the time, add on the idea of not knowing that you have your wheel seal broken and taken for granted therefore rusting and damage happens earlier than expected. Some of the signs that you could look out on to know if you have a damaged Mitsubishi wheel bearing would be having growling, rumbling, chirping, or cyclic noise from your wheels.
Sometimes, you can also check the looseness and roughness of your wheels when you raise the suspension and feel it by rotating the wheel with your hand. Apparently, a damaged wheel bearing can be really risky when you continue to drive with it. The wheels of your automotive could come off from the vehicle and you might end up in an accident. So, to avoid any mishap, make sure that you replace your Mitsubishi wheel bearing when it is needed.
