If the bearing is new and the shaft is not damaged,and its fitted correctly,i cannot see why it is been damaged,so,make sure its the right bearing,, check the shaft the bearing fits on to, for damage and wear ,if all ok put plenty of grease on the bearing then re assemble the wheel,make sure the nut holding the bearing is not overtightened,and fit a new split pin.,also make sure the wheel is not damaged, now to be a 100% on the safe side have the steering checked over and the wheels ballenced,then you should be ok...hope that helps,have a good day....

V belt drive and wheel bearings for front wheels

What Is a Wheel Bearing? What Is a Wheel Bearing? A wheel bearing is a set of steel balls held together by a metal ring called a race. They help wheels spin fast with as little friction as possible. They are used on all kinds of vehicles, from bicycles to aircraft and cars. On a car, a wheel bearing rides on a metal axle shaft and fits tightly inside the hub, which is a hollow chunk of metal at the center of the wheel. The hub holds the lug bolts that you use to bolt the tire onto the wheel. The wheel bearing is pressed into the hub from the back
What Does a Bad Wheel Bearing Sound Like? When bearings are damaged and making noise, it's hard to diagnose because you have to drive the vehicle in order to reproduce the sound. Here are tips to help you find the source of the problem: When the seal on the wheel bearing is broken or damaged, the noise starts out very faint and becomes louder over time. It sounds like the noise that your tires make when hitting a rumble strip on the highway, just not quite as loud, something like the sound of playing cards flapping against bicycle spokes
  • While driving down the road about 40 mph, sway the car side to side slowly, shifting the weight of the vehicle from one side to the other. Do not drive crazy or cause the car to spin out, just sway it gently. Notice whether the noise gets louder or softer. If the noise is a little less if you turn right, the damaged bearing may be on the left, or vice versa.
  • Note that tires that are "chopped" or "scalloped" (worn in patches) also make a rhythmic noise that increases in speed. This sounds very similar to a bad wheel bearing. Look at your tires as well if you hear this kind of noise. Why Do Wheel Bearings Make Noise? Most wheel bearings are hardened steel and can withstand a lot of abuse. Its two worst enemies are heat and water. Heat caused by lack of lubrication can destroy a wheel bearing. Water that penetrates a sealed bearing will also destroy it.
    Most wheel bearings manufactured today are sealed. They come from the factory pressed together as an assembly: front race, bearing set, center race, bearing set, and outer race, with seals on both the front and rear. Seals protect bearings from the elements, water, and debris, and they also seal in the high-temperature grease the bearing needs. When a seal is broken or damaged, the wheel bearing will fail and start making noise.
    the Source of Bearing Noise , if you really want to know whether your noise is a bearing noise and you can get the car up on a lift, you can use an improvised stethoscope (actually a big screwdriver) to listen to the sound and find out where it's coming from. Have someone in the vehicle start it and run it at about 40 mph. Using a long screwdriver or stethoscope, rest it on the hub near each wheel bearing. Careful! Don't let the tool touch a moving part, or it could fly up and hit you. Listen through the handle of the screwdriver (or through the stethoscope) for the noise, and I guarantee you will be able to determine which bearing is bad Replacing Your Wheel Bearing Wheel bearings do not fail immediately, and usually give you some time before you need to have them replaced. I suppose if a wheel bearing failed completely it could lock up and prevent the car from moving. Then again, my daughter drove on a noisy bearing for six months and nothing happened except that it got louder and louder.
    You shouldn't necessarily have the bearings on both sides replaced. Just because one fails is no reason to think the others are about to; bearings should last a long time.
    Replacing one is a bit expensive because of the labor involved. There are a lot of parts to remove and get out of the way before you can get to the wheel bearing,

Right front wheel speed sensor, traction control and abs kick in inadvertently.

A damaged or defective ABS sensor can cause the problems you describe.

C1226 Right Front Excessive Wheel Speed Variation, and C1233 Right Front Wheel Speed Circuit Open or Shorted.
Have you replaced the wheel bearing on the right front? the sensor may well be bad, look first at the wiring however, as a bad connection will produce these codes. road salt, road debris, etc can lead to wiring damage. if no damage, I would have the sensor checked for a proper reading, if its out of range, then replace the wheel bearing (or sensor if its replaceable separately, you didn't give a year) if it checks out OK then move to the wiring to the ABS computer, then the computer itself.

Traction control light comes rumbles and brake pedal feels like its coming up...Doesnt happen all the time....can drive two miles or sixty miles...Cadillac dealer changed wheel bearing and it did...

Sounds like a "WSS" (wheel speed sensor) problem. Each wheel has one. Located on the backside of each hub, between the brake disc and hub bearing. Check for loose connector first. Wire damage? Wiring touching exhaust pipes or rubbing wheel or tire? Look for mud or debris or damage to the sensor's or the rotating sensor ring. ( has a lot of "teeth") Try driving in reverse, in a straight line 25 to 30 feet, then drive forward twice that distance. If that does not clear the warning lamps most auto parts stores can hook into your computer (usually for free) and determine which sensor(s) have an issue. Replacing these sensors is common and simple. You may still need to get the code cleared to turn light off.

ABS Light is on, and TRAC off Light on. MIDAS

Either someone damaged a sensor for the ABS/TRAC control, or the replacement parts are not compatible with the ABS system.

Service traction system light

Should be a sensor (look for a wire running to the back side or inside of the wheel.) that picks up the rotation.

I'd suspect that it got damaged during the wheel bearing replacement. If the wire is missing, look at the left side front wheel as a mirror image of what should be there.
