Illustration for article titled With one corner in the air and the wheel off, should it spin with the engine running and the transmission in neutral?

I was replacing my drive belts today, and when I was done, decided to turn on the car to make sure they had good tension before putting the splash shield and car down. When I did, like in the title, the hub that was in the air started spinning slowly, although the other side wasn’t at all.

It’s a manual transmission, so is this normal, just not visible because normally there’d be the weight of the wheel and car pressing down on it to stop it?
