[Solved] Rear Wheel Bearing Issue
So my 2004 Ford Focus wagon has a rear wheel bearing issue that I've been working on for about a year. Originally I bought the super cheapo hub/bearings cause the car is old and only used for the wife's short commute and for utility jobs. I've never done a repair like this but with the help of YouTube it wasn't that difficult. About 7 months later I noticed the howl was back! So I said screw it and went to Autozone and got a Duralast hub. Now a few more months later the howl is back again!!! Now I'm thinking it can't be the Duralast hub but I honestly cannot tell which side the noise is coming from. Suggestions are greatly appreciated. 😀
This is why I only buy OEM wheel bearings!
I’ve had aftermarket ones go out after a few months of use.
Ofcourse, verify which one is roaring before you replace it.
In a recent video I think Scotty may have pointed out why it went bad. He mentioned things failing easier when suspension components are damaged or need replacement. The rear shocks are pretty much shot so I guess I'd better stop being lazy and replace them. Don't know if that was the reason but couldn't hurt.
