Question about 1991 Ford Festiva
Have replaced wheel bearing in left rear wheel 4 times in 2 months the car does about 80 kms a day by my wife who is preety hard on the accelerator weve replaced every thing eg,tyre,stub axle,hub,everything exept rim but it still does it the rim seems to be fine ?
I'm not familiar with the style of this rear bearing, there are 3 basic designs that are generally used. The single most important thing to consider when installing any of them is preload torque. Obviously the bearing must be properly lubricated and protected with new seals when installed, but the whole job comes down to how tight that big gland nut is when you finish the job. Because the Festiva is really a Mazda, I would cross check the final installation torque of that nut between different spec sheets and see if some answers can be found there.
