Your Jeep Cherokee wheel bearing is one of the more important parts connecting the tire to the axel, but one that's so small and hidden away you probably don't think much about it. The next time you are out cruising across the sand dunes, listen closely for any sputtering noise coming from your wheels. While bearings and bearing bolts generally last for several thousand miles, sometimes up to 100,000 or more, once they start going bad, it can quickly mean serious danger for you. Bad bearings can affect your steering, and losing control on the dunes can mean bad news for both you and your ride.
Replacing a Bad Wheel Bearing and Bolts
The causes of bad wheel bearings primarily include excessive heat and water leakage. The former can occur when the parts are not properly lubricated, which can lead to high friction and increased heat. The latter can occur if the seal has rusted away or if the wheel bearing hub assembly bolts are worn or not attached correctly.
If you choose to replace your 1999 Jeep Cherokee wheel bearing yourself, you can save a lot of money on labor, but it can be a more difficult replacement to DIY because of limited accessibility to the bearing and the bolts. Be sure purchase new hub assembly bolts along with the new wheel bearing installation parts which match your vehicle make and model.
