Wheel Bearing Replacement

Hello All!

I am a new member to this forum, and new Civic driver as well. I just have a quick question (I'm sorry if I'm repeating a thread that was already answered!)

I have a 2016 Honda Civic LX-P 2 Door 2.0L.

My front wheel bearing is going bad. It's the usual, making noise as the speed increases. Obviously, I need to replace it.

I've done general maintenance with my car before, but I am having a hard time trying to find a wheel bearing replacement, even the whole wheel hub assembly.

If any of you with more experience replacing these has any recommendations or links to a good quality wheel bearing or hub assembly, I would very much appreciate it.

(I don't want to take it to a mechanic because I want to learn how to fix my own car and learn more about it as I go, plus I know that the repair will be so much more expensive than me just replacing it myself)

Thank you all!

How many miles on the car?
Front wheel bearings are covered under the 5/60 powertrain warranty. Take it to your dealership.


EDIT: Make sure you're not hearing choppy tire tread noise first.

Hello!

Unfortunately, I bought the car with a 3/36 warranty. Mileage is 38k right now, and the sound happened right after i passed my warranty.

Re: Wheel Bearing Replacement

if they are anything like older models, you will need a press to press them in, so not recommended as starting point DIY job...

Re: Wheel Bearing Replacement

I am not sure regarding older models, but fortunately I do have a Hydrolic Press, so that is no issue for me!

Bumper to bumper is 3/36.

POWERTRAIN WARRANTY IS 5/60.
(unless HONDA cancelled warranty for some reason, which will show up on the Honda dealers VIN report)

Re: Wheel Bearing Replacement

Wow, I must have no read or known about that warranty. Thank you so much. I'll be taking it to the dealer.

Sorry about not being informed on that, but thank you once more!
