Rear Wheel Bearings On Gen 7 Celica...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here had any trouble from the rear wheel bearings on the gen 7 Celicas? Ive come across a few now that are noisy, some with as low as 30k miles.. They cost an arm and a leg to buy them new from Toyota because you cant buy the bearing seperate, you must buy the complete rear hub assembly...

you could always buy the bearings from a bearing specialist ( that's assuming that they aren't available at your local motor factors ). Always works out a stack cheaper.

what does it sound like?

I have a v loud noise coming from what I think is the rear offside wheel, but I just assumed it was the tyre which was sligtly misshapen causing a loud road noise. My noise can't be described easily, sounds like the tyre is just a really loud one, and the volume seems proportionate to the speed i'm going.

mine is also the off side rear, my tyres were brand new when i got the car and havent done 5000 on em yet

kind of high pitched hollow whining noise, more noticeable at 60-70 mph

i got the same problem. At high speed there is a very ugly hollow noise from rear wheels. Its doing my head in to figure out what the noise is. Do i need to get the wheel bearnings changed??

Hi I'm new to the forum and have just purchased an 04 T Sport with 4600k miles. I have exactly the same problem with my rear offside wheel. The noise is so annoying. I ttok my car to my toyota dealership and they told me the bearing was noisy and would need replaced at a cost of 364 pounds :o

The bearing has not collapsed and is just noisy so i think for the next couple of months i'll just pump up the volume on the stereo.

Does anyone know if there is a step by step guide on this forum to replacing the rear hub and bearing.

I very much doubt there's a guide on here, you might try the celica club uk or newcelica sites. Any idea how much of that £364 is labour?

For anyone wishing to undertake this repair themselves, the link for a free .pdf workshop manual is below:

All I would say is, take it easy and be prepared to struggle a bit unless you have a fair range of tools and possibly a hydraulic press. Although I haven't changed a bearing on this car specifically, I would say that it may be worthwhile getting someone to help who has previous experience just in case. Also, a torque wrench is highly recommended as this is a part you can't afford to have coming loose!

If you have Pirelli PZERO 17" tyres they are very common to go out of shape, i have not known a wheel bearing on a gen 7 to fail, but it is still possible. I would advise you to run your hand around the tyre to feel for any treads that have lifted, or if you can jack and secure with axel stands, spin the back wheels by hand, you can then look at the tyre to see if it runs out of true.

Dear all, I have an 05 T-sport purchased last year and the very same problem has been bugging me from purchase.

I know a couple of Toyota technicians and both gave the same lame line; its the tyre noise; Celicas dont do bearings, especially as i've only done 27k! I too have the P zero tyres, but there's a simple test; put a wheel on that doesn't have the same tyre and see if the noise remains. And it does }:o(

I was thinking of having the bearing re-packed with grease. Is that something that can be done?

Otherwise for peeps wanting a better replacement cost, i found a site that does the part for just £98; Toyota quoted me £255 for the same part.

Strange I've never heard of the wheel bearing being an issue on Gen7's
