If you are running tapered bearings then I would say that your problem is over-tightening and will destroy bearings very quickly. Too much or not enough grease will do the same . To properly grease new bearings you have to get the grease between the rollers and under the cage (that steel bit that holds the bearings apart) To do this place a small amount of grease in the palm of your hand and use the open end of the bearing to create a scraping action through the grease . This catches the grease and pushes it between the rollers. Do this action until you see it coming out the small end of the bearing. This is all the grease you need for a properly lubricated bearing. Repeat the process for the other bearing. Reassemble and fit the washer and locknut. Tighten the nut at the same time turning the wheel. When the nut is firm against the bearing but not tight turn the wheel a few more times. Now don't touch the wheel but loosen off the nut then retighten it up until it just touches the bearing. This is a no pre-load no end float situation that is most desirable for tapered roller bearings. Fit the split pin in the hole and open up the pin to catch it in the hole. If the pin hole will not allow this to happen tighten it just enough to get the first available slot to line up to allow the pin in. If you have thrust ball bearings they same method of greasing and adjustment is applicable.

My ford festiva makes a loud whining road noise. Recently the gearbox was changed, and 3 months before that the lhs front wheel bearing was replaced. Any ideas what the problem is?

that has all the hallmarks of a faulty or worn wheel bearing. Run the car on the road, come home and jack up all 4 wheels. Spin them and see if they feel rough, hold the top and bottom of the tyre and see if you get movement in and out.

The trick with replacing wheel bearings, is to tighten down whilst spinning the wheel until it locks up, and then release, if i remember correctly a quarter turn. Locking it up makes sure the bearing is fully seated. If not, they become very loose in a short time and the rollers in the bearing start to shatter. Ruined two before I was told that trick by the parts store.

I just answered this but I forgot to mention that you have to replace both parts of the bearing--never mix old and new and never mix different brands in the same bearing.

Front wheel bearings 1994 ford probe

Since I am out in the middle of nowhere with internet, a woodsplitter, and no hydraulic press, I removed the hub assembly from vehicle and used the hydraulic woodsplitter to press the bearings out. An adapter can me made to cover the blade and provide a flat surface.

How to remove rear wheel bearings on my 1999 Ford Expedition and how do i know what pulley to rent/buy?

The 1999 Ford Expedition is built on an F150 platform. The Expedition uses a 9.75-inch rear axle. The axles are retained with C-clips at the end of the axle shaft, inside the differential carrier. The axle bearings are of the roller type. A failed axle bearing can manifest itself as a noise at the rear wheel or gear oil leaking past the oil seal. When replacing axle bearings, the oil seals must also be replaced.
Torque the caliper mounting bolts to 30 foot-pounds. Torque the bolt to 20 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket. Click this link below for complete detailed procedure:--- -------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Keeps chewing wheel bearings

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.

Noise in front end, sounds like wheel bearings, 110,000 miles, rear end axles and bearings replaced, sounds still present, louder when making left turn when weight of vehicle shifts to front end right side

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
