Has anyone had a rear wheel bearing failure on a 200 series Landcruiser? It has done approximately 60000 km towing a 19ft Bushtracker. Thank you in advance 😎

We had a front left cv go at 53000kms not impressed with Toyota schedule servicing.

Not sure what the service schedule for the 200 series, but if it is the same as the 100, then all bearings should be done every 20k. As I do my own servicing it is a bit of overkill, but they will be need to be done at least every 40k if not towing. I have over 240k with the original bearings all round because they are regularly done, albeit time consuming so it sounds like they may have been neglected by your servicing agent or it simply failed (quite rare). Can also happen if mechanic did do it and overtightened the bearing causing the grease to be pushed out and then overheat.

I always thought the bearings were a non-serviceable item on the 200 series.

Yes, I confirmed this with our Dealership in Geelong. Bearing services on the 200 are a non scheduled item and the front ones I know for sure are not serviceable. I didn't specifically ask about the rear bearings but I'm confident Loki would be correct with his statement.

Cheers.

Yea,

Director of Bushtracker say: In four 200 Series in R&D, no, never dealt with the wheel bearings... Maybe an odd Lemon out, but none in mine.... We go with Loki....

Kind regards, Steven Gibbs, Admin, crazy R&D Guy.... Laughing Laughing Laughing
