How to service your wheel bearings on your own and guard against wheel bearing failure:
To properly check your wheel bearings, you must jack up your vehicle and secure it on jack stands. Place your hands on the tire at 12 and 6 o’clock. Try to tip the wheel. Do the same with your hands at 3 and 9 o’clock. If you note a lot of free-play, you may need to replace your wheel bearings.
