Why is my front wheel bearing goin out so much
I have changed my front wheel bearing three times
in a week and a half on my 2003 Ford escape 4wd
3.0 could anybody give me a heads up on what to
do or what to look for
One thing is if you are buying a cheep bearing, I never have luck with these. Another is if you are torquing the axle nut to the proper torque with the wheel still off the ground. One other thing to check would be the axle shaft CV joints. Look and make sure the boots are not torn, if so then the bearings are contaminated.
I found this out the hard way when I first became a mechanic installed wheel bearings using a air gun was over tightening the bearing. Do not use air gun use a torque wrench.
