Volkswagen Wheel Hub Assembly Parts
Volkswagen wheel hub
The 2014 Volkswagen Passat is considered by many to be the perfect family sedan. It has been designed with a European flair to it and is very roomy. Its high-quality cabin has above-average passenger and cargo space and the interior is refined and luxurious. But what makes this car so economical is its fuel efficiency. It also boasts a 2.5 liter, five-cylinder diesel engine that reaches horsepower of 170 hp at 5700 RPM. The safety features include 4-wheel ABS, dual front side-mounted airbags, an engine immobilizer and tire pressure monitoring.
When you are taking family on a road trip, or if you are using your car to travel for business purposes, you need to check your car’s tires, the tire balance, pressure, and alignment before leaving. Road trips can turn into nightmares if the there is something wrong with the tires or the parts that holds the tires in place. When you are driving and you hear a grinding sound coming from the wheel or when you turn the steering wheel and you hear a strange noise, it might be a sign of a wheel hub assembly that is faulty.
The VW Wheel Hub Assembly is the unit located between the brake discs or drums and the drive axle and its duty is to hold the wheel part together. The wheel hub assembly makes it possible to be able to drive smoothly and plays a big roll on movement of the wheels. The wheel hub is a plastic casing that contains wheel bearings which allows the wheel to turn steadily and quietly. If those bearings are worn, or if some of the parts are missing, you need to do a wheel hub assembly replacement.
When you drive with a faulty VW Wheel Hub Assembly, it can be dangerous to you and your passengers. When driving at a high speed, your tires can come off because the wheel hub assembly ensures that the wheels are securely attached to the vehicle’s body and that they stay in place at all times, at any speed. It is good practice to replace the wheel hub bearings in pairs because if one is showing signs of wear and tear, the other one will soon follow.
