My cuore is making some noise from wheel while my car is at speed above 40 km/h and increase with speed. My mechanic told me that its due to the faulty wheel bearing . he checked while lifted car on the jack and turning wheels by hand. I also heard a abnormal noise from my back wheel (right side). Could you please suggest me the place where i can purchase a genuine bearing. I am intending to purchase from toyota society motors karachi. also recommend me that whether fixing requires special press machines or any mechanic will do the job.

purchasing from Toyota service centers cost about Rs. 1300 for only one wheel bearing set and labour charges 550. A total of Rs. 1850. If I additionally grease other back wheel bearing it will also cost 400 more. Please suggest me whether i go with toyota motor service center or not. If not then please advice other good shop for genuine japanise bearing.
firstly - when you install a bearing with a press get it cartridge and hub pressed separately - thats how the service manual suggests it, and load the bearing with synthetic NLGI3 lithium based EP grease when installing it. Just for insurance (because bearings are shipped with a very very low amount of grease nowadays.
