The Wheel Seal is a protective component for your car's wheel bearings. Their function is to keep water and dirt from affecting the wheel bearings and to prevent the grease in the wheel bearings from leaking out. Wheel bearings are essential to your wheel's smooth movement and rotation. They also bear the weight of your car's wheels and prevent the wheel shaft and spindle from getting worn out.
If the wheel seals are damaged, the grease in the wheel bearings would leak, causing the lubrication to thin out. A cracked wheel seal would also let detrimental elements like mud and water to seep through the seal. These substances will have a corrosive effect on the surface of the wheel bearings.
If you hear a squealing or grating noise while driving or turning, it's a possible indicator of a damaged wheel seal (and wheel bearing). In some cases, a damaged wheel seal could cause your wheel hub and spindle to become loose due to corrosion, causing your wheels to wobble. Other signs to look out for include a pulling/listing of your vehicle to one side due to restricted wheel movement and an abnormal, uneven wear on your wheels.
