    Default fiesta rear wheel bearing

    right got a strange one for ya

    had a fiesta st in today for a new rear wheel bearing
    remove old bearing and fitted a new one
    rebuilt the rear hub and there is massive play in the new bearing to the point that if i grab the whell at 12 and 6 i can move it about 2" each way

    so i removed it and checked it was together correctly and it was

    so in the end i replaced it with yet another new wheel bearing , fitted this and seemed that all the play was gone till fitted it all back to the car and theres still loads of play in this bearing as well
    i even torqued it up to 275 nm to try and get rid of the play but to no avail

    now the person whos car it is got the bearings off the bay at a price of 2 for £25 but there £32 + vat at camberley auto factors

    do you think its suspect bearings or something else???

    surely even a low quality bearing wouldnt do that? they just woulnt last as long i would have thought.

    how bad where the old bearings? theyve not dam,ged the hub have they?
