    • A shop literally just messed up my wheel on my 98 lexus rear left wheel. And when I was driving home I immediately knew it was the wheel bearing

  • SCOTTY IS MISTAKEN!!! 95% of the time when you swerve to the left the weight transfers to the right side, loading up the bearing causing it to reveal if it's gone noisy. They don't have to be loose to be noisy, and they don't have to be noisy to be loose. Road test then double check with the wheels in the air by spinning them by hand.

  • Fun fact: Wiggle it left to right like Scotty did, you can also tell if it's a inner or outer tie rod (there's a popping noise.) Apply the same wiggle affect but going from top to bottom, if theres play could be the wheel bearing/hub

  • The bearing would get louder when under more weight, right? (That's probably where I'm wrong.)

  • You need to stop giving automotive advice. This isn't the 70's, cars are far more complicated and half the stuff you say is bogus or doesn't apply. I manage a European auto repair shop and working on cars for 25+yrs, even I don't go around giving unsolicited automotive repair advice.

  • He’s actually wrong on this one it would be if the left bearing is out when you turn right there’s more weight on the left causing more noise for a fact 😂

  • These people that suggesting that you change both wheel bearings must like wasting money. Only change the part that is bad. person might’ve hit a curb that’s probably why it went. I’ve had cars were wheelbearings have never gone and had north of 250,000 miles on them. These people sound like well one ball joint went might as well change them all.

  • Using the swerving method is definitely very good for diagnosing which side the wheel bearing that needs to be replaced is on. If ya turn left and hear it it’s the right . If you turn right and hear it . It’s the left

  • Well, not every day do you find that you can do something better than the master because today I have a better way to check that. Jack up the front right or left wheel independently just like you did. Instead of shaking to struggle to listen which requires a professional or keen ear to tell the difference, get back in the car and engage your parking break/foot break/ hand break. Then start your vehicle and put it in drive. DO NOT STEP ON THE GAS PEDAL OR THE BREAKS. The suspended wheel will start rotating and if it's the one with worn out bearings, even a blind person with not so good hearing would tell because the noise would be amplified.

  • Hunh? Swerve right All weight is on left! Swerve left all weight is on right! Best to jack the car up. (4x4 jcak stands both ends) Use long screwdriver 🪛or prybar..put car in gear (with someone inside just in case) hold tool to the knuckle and other end to your ear 👂 . Bingo! You will easily be able to hear it

  • Or u could spin the tire while u have it off the ground and put your hand on the struts coil spring. If u feel vibration u got a bad wheel bearing.

  • In the back it is the other way arround when I go left my noise is gone but when I go right it gets louder so I replaced the left back bearing and now its gone. I can explain it too. When you go left the hole weight goes to the right wheel and when you go right the weight goes to the left wheel. But I dont understand why its the other way in the front can someone explain??

  • Just so I'm in the understanding you wiggle the wheel that is off the ground and if it wobbles that is indicative of a bad wheel bearing?.... funny though I was always taught to use a bar under the raised tire to check for a bad bearing. And what you show is a check for a bad tie rod end or lesser a ball joint. (Also the bar under the tire method can also show a bad ball joint).

  • Yes but what about Toyota Celica's wheel bearings? Some say they are made of pure plot armor and that Japanese mechanics would rather commit suicide than try to replace them....All we know is; Scotty makes great short videos 😂

  • I’ve never really liked how scotty came across in his youtube videos, too eccentric but here he is so much calmer and I honestly enjoyed watching this

  • I had a bad wheel bearing without play in it and no noise or resistance when spinning the wheel with my hands. Jacked up the car so only one wheel is in the air, started it, and accelerated it so the wheel spun until the speedometer showed 60 kph. Turned off the engine with car in neutral, and you could hear which bearing was bad while the wheel was still spinning.

  • What makes the wheel bearing fail. Is it a specific driving habit or maintenance

    Polat AlemdarPolat Alemdarหลายเดือนก่อน
  • But when you turn right, the left wheel has more weight and vise versa. So based on that troubleshooting you would think the right side is bad.

      Kane RichardsonKane Richardson26 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Also, you push and pull on the wheel with your hand at the 12 and 6 positions on the tire, not side to side as that would be steering play (tie rod, steering rack, etc)

    • @iLikeWaffles that’s what I was taught too. If swerving to the left, more pressure on the right indicating a bad rf wheel bearing. And it doesn’t always have to have visual play to be bad.
