Life of a wheel bearing

Postby jimbo07g41 » Mon Feb 22, 2021 8:55 pm

How long do they last?

I have my mk7 T350 rear hubs and discs in pieces. I have over 100k showing on the hubs and bearings Should I replace or soldier on till I have noise?

180k on my old mk7, still on its originals when sold, and with stupid big 18's on it.

I'd wait for a noise.

Think I am with you Punto. No noise on current bearing pack, no play and no roughness. Motor factors bearings might not last anyway.

Wait for noise. Just make sure CVs aren't split. Wont just go and you left stranded. You will get plenty of notice.

If its anything like the rear wheel bearing on a Renault Kangoo i replaced recently from Euro Car Farts it will only last 5 days. The van was empty.
