  • Wheel bearing

    So I've got a droning noise from the rear passenger side that sounds like the wheel bearing is in its way out.
    can anyone point me in the direction of a replacement please? It's a Facelift A, 66 plate tech Line. Just at the garage waiting for them to check but they say they can't replace bearings, but I'm under the impression it's a full hub kit? I've had a look online but need an expert opinion.
    Cheers!

      Yeo part 1 pictured don't think bearing can be pressed in. I replaced hub assembly flange bolts and all that during summer. Ur a wise man going to garage. Terrible job with a ebay slide hammer . Vauxhal ones in parti ular seem to weld very stiff the the suspension leg. It's the dissimilar metals or something. If doing at home u need serious heat and a variety of techniques

        Garage says theres no issue with bearings, no movement or grinding etc. So, what else could cause a noise like a flat tyre (only quieter)? Wheel out of balance? Its in the rear where the noise is, and theres no movement on the steering that would indicate a wheel out of balance.

          Well....the steering ain't gonna cause a noise at the rear.

          F.Y.I all the bearings on the insignia are the same.....fronts and rears are interchangeable....so don't let people charge you more for one than the other.

          If the bearing isn't the cause of the noise, then look at the tyres.....if your tread is low, this can cause road noise.

            Tyres are all OK, all of em done less than 6k miles - pressures are OK (Eco mode so at 38 on rear) - might take it down the tyre place to see if its out of balance

              Does the noise get worse on right bends and quieter on left bends? If so it's still likely a wheel bearing.

              I once had an Astra that showed zero play or grinding when jacked up (no load) and I was similarly confused what it could be. Then the bearing completely collapsed 60 miles from home. Oh, that'll be the bearing then!

                I had a droning coming from the rear of my Vectra C and it turned out to be banana arms ( upper control arms )

                  I had a similar issue with my 16 plate vx line, it's in a previous post somewhere?.Turns out it was the rear tyres,apparently its a known problem that the tyre goes kind of oval and wavy, which creates a bearing like noise . Anyway, after having 2 new tyres fitted, the noise disappeared. The tyre fitter actually showed me the tyre, although it had plenty of tread and very little mileage, it was kind of wavy on the inside edge. Not saying this is your issue, but worth investigating prior to shelling out money...maybe worth seeing a tyre specialist and mention this issue to them.

                    As Arfa said, I also had the same issue and it turned out to be the rear tyres wearing / stepping on the inner edge. It's the way the suspension is set up from factory. I changed my tyres to Landsail and not had the issue since. think they were Bridgestone or Continental from factory. I have the 20" tyres on mine

                      Thanks all, off to tyre place on Monday to have a look at it, not had time today. Can't see anything myself but best for it to come off and investigated by a pro. MOT on Tuesday too so fingers crossed for an easy pass.
