    Hi guys,

    I'm suspecting that I got some broken wheel bearings in my Vitara model 94.
    Just wanted to ask if this can easily be repaired/replaced in most shops or is it something that I would need to order the parts for, just like most Vitara spare parts.

    TIA.

    /Kenn

    Inspect bearings now. Worst case scenario is a broken spindle. wheel bearings are common in auto supplies. just note the number &letters on the bearings. Inspect both sides.

    sir, would you know if availability of said bearings are common even for Vitara's? I have this notion that Vitara parts are not so easy to find.

    your bearings are sold with installed hub as a set. it is quite pricey. make sure it is the bearings or the hub that is bad before purchasing replacements. check the tires and the torque of the lugnuts first.

    sir when you say pricey, what price range are we talking about? I also bought a new set of stud bolts since they're pretty worn out already. BTW, does anyone know a good place down south (Las Pinas, Paranaque) who can fix this?

    Thanks for the info sir. It's not a GV. It's a Vitara JLX. And yes. '94.
