#1 of 13 Wheel Bearing
Jan 10, 2013 (12:44 pm)
I have 05 Toyota Sienna. One of my rear bearing essembly and one front bearing making sound and every tech is saying its need to replace.
I want to know that shell I change all the four sides or just change the bad once.
Pls note that my van has 140K plus mile on it and I never change the bearings before.
Which brand is recomended, I found many which are as follows
Or something better then above
also from where I can get a good deal.

If you plan on keeping the van long term and you have to do two, you might as well do all four. Not keeping it more than another year? Only change what you need to now.

Or compromise and just change both on the same axle.
If one side it worn, odds are the other side isn't far behind, especially since it's been compensating for the weak side.

Can you please also recomend any brand from above. I also find Dura Last at Auto Zone.
One more question:
I never replace the timing belts and my van runs good, it has 140k miles on it. So should I change the timing belt or wait for sometime.

or wait for sometime.
I like the way you put that! Unfortunately, there is only one thing you are waiting for - the sound of metal on metal as your pistons and valves try to occupy the same space at the same time. Interference engine! Change that belt.

I'm planning to buy the belts from the dealer as I get some good discount from our local dealer. Pls advise if there is any other good after market brand.
For the bearing, can you pls recommend any brand.

While I've bought Gates or other nationally recognized brands for accessory drive belts where the risk is overall lower, I've always bought OEM timing belts.
Last time (long time ago), I think I went with Timken bearings. Again, nationally known, but I have no idea if they are better or worse than others. Sorry - cannot really help you here.
