    Were they fitted by a dealer as poorly fitted or damaged bearings will knock out very quickly. Are the hub and drive shafts ok as they will wear bearings quicker also.

    Would have thought the dealer would have noticed if hubs or drive shafts were at fault and that the bearings were fitted correctly. I presume they were replaced FOC, did you ask them why they thought they had failed so quickly.

    yeah they fixed it FOC. Well I thought they fixed it.This is the third time in four years that the bearings had gone. the main dealer had put on new drive shafts and hubs a year ago with the new bearing. Must admit the main dealer has not charge me for the new drive shafts that they have put on at nearly £500 each and they give me a new car for the time my car is in being fixed. They don't know why it keeps happening. that's why I'm asking you lot out there if any won else had the same problem.
