Are wheel bearings and hub the same thing
I had mechanic fix car as it has noisy tire. He determined it was bearing and fixed it. Car still sound same noise. Now he say it's the hub and cost more for hub part. Does this sound right?
They aren't the same thing but they're both part of the same assembly. In case you aren't familiar with what an assembly is, think about a pair of glasses. The glasses you wear would be an assembly of parts like the lenses, frames, screws, and hinges. Each item is part of the assembly. So the wheel bearing is one part of the hub assembly.
I just watched a number of videos on YouTube and it appears that in cars today it is the norm to change the whole hub assembly so I would say that unless you have an older car your mechanic should have changed out the whole assembly.
I'm putting the links to two of the videos I watched. The first one shows you how they change out the whole assembly and the second one shows you someone just changing a bearing. The purpose of the second one is to show you what the bearing looks like (around 5:06).
Thank you. I'm just confused why it wasn't done together as car was still bad after bearing was changed. Car is an 06 Hyundai and I went to Monroe which I had hoped was legit. I guess I'm just paying labor as I had to change hub anyways. Thank you
