    Wheel Bearings

    I own a Swift Vxi and its done 30k kms. There is a noise and the Maruti service agent is asking me to change the Wheel Bearings for all the 4 tyres though 2 are somewhat ok. Why do the bearings depreciate? Anyway to maintain them? Do i need to change all four or 2 would be okay? Would appreciate a response.

    30K is too early for a bearing change. I was advised to change my cars at approx 55k. If the vehicle is in warranty, it will cover the bearings. Even extended warranty is helpful in this regard. Check if it is applicable in your case. A slight humming is of not much consequence, but if the vehicle makes audible dug-dug noise when going over bumps and speed breakers, that is the point to go for a change of bearings. Could change only for a pair of tyres, and can tackle the other pair next time when one of the remaining two tyres starts misbehaving. On the other hand, if you are planning to take the car across the country on an interstate travel or so, then it is advisable to change both pairs rightaway.

    However I would still recommend that all bearings be changed since two are already confirmed to be damaged - if they belong to the front or rear pair then I guesses only that pair needs to be changed but if one belongs to front and the other to rear then change all four. Even so, in the former case I personally would have preferred to change all four, depending on time/money factor.
