Noobie Advice Needed

Hi,

Just wanted some advice really, probably more generic advice about wheel bearings than Yaris specific, unless there's something I'm not aware of.

I have a '01 Yaris, it's of an age where things need replacing on a regular basis (which I understand!). In the last year I've had both front bearings replaced, and now after driving 200 miles on a motorway there's another very loud humming noise that's just appeared, starting at around 40mph and increasing noise all the way up to 70mph.

The tyres needed replacing at the front anyway so I've just had those done today, as it couldn't possibly be more bearings! And it's still making a very loud humming/droning noise. Doesn't make a difference when turning, and I'll try the wheel grab test in the morning.

Just wanted to know if anyone could suggest anything? Is there any precedence for bearings being faulty from new, or overheating on a long journey (the last bearing fail/noise started on another long trip a few months ago).

Could it be anything else? Tracking, engine probs?

Cheers!

Ian

likely the rear bearings, depending where the noise is coming from

Oh yes it could be the front bearings if the shop botched it. How long since they were done mileswise?

Thanks chaps. Ended up being the off side front bearing which the garage did in February. It had done around 10k since then. They said it was a faulty bearing and covered it under the part warranty. At least that's what they blamed it on! So didn't have to pay a thing thankfully.

I'm taking partial credit for stating it was likely a bearing

plus I'm now working on my 4th star so I'm looking for anything I can get

More advice needed...

Apparently the radiators are notorious with mk1 yaris for getting damaged by stone chippings etc. Now I bought ours over four years ago when it was already 11 years old, and noted then some damage (holes in the cooling fins?). A garage suggested a replacement 2 years ago, and now a shop have a sale on so I'm thinking of getting replacement radiator and doing it myself.

My question is, does it really need replacing if it's not leaking or overheating? Should I just wait till then?

Oh something else to note is that the coolant needs replacing anyway (not been done in 4 years and done 60k since then), hence why I'm thinking of replacing rad at the same time.

Cheers for any advice!
