I have replaced the wheel bearing on my left rear side and it has went bad again. This will be the fourth bearing that I have had repaired within the last 7 months. My mechanic informed me that there is a recall on the exact bearing I am having issues with, the rear left. He said that this car had the most recalls that he has ever seen on one car. He told me to have a recall repaired I would need to contact Ford. After speaking with the dealership, they told me that no recall was found on my vin and that starting at the lowest the diagnosis would be $100...I called the 1-800 number and they told me the same thing. The lady seems to think it is either a coincidence or that its really not the bearing that is bad, that it is something else, but the mechanic didn't catch it the first 3 times.

i have changed the entire rear drums 3x now to get rid of the noise. it is a temporary fix and i have ruined 2 new bearings putting the new ones on because there are rough pieces of metal that catch it when putting it on. I have sanded it down and i am currently looking for a complete rear axle or rear end hoping to get rid of the issue with as little cost as possible.

This problem is recurring. I have had ALL my wheel bearings replaced at least once, not to mention SEVERAL other problems. After having several of the bearings replaced I asked my mechanic why this continued to happen...was it something I did? Maybe my driving ...nope... part of the wheel bearings are made of plastic...PLASTIC?!?

Nothing like laying on the frozen ground trying to fix this sh*t in the middle of winter. Ford knows there is a problem with the seals. But no recall was ever issued. Let one of the Ford Family come down and fix the next damn problem with it

I just noticed that my wheel bearings have gone bad. Now I am tryign to figure out what to do, where to go, who is paying for it.

63200 miles is too early for the failure

Focus 2.0L V4

  • Automatic transmission

I was informed that my right front wheel bearing was "shot" when I had my 2000 Ford Focus in for repairs with the engine light being on and poor engine performance. I was also told the left front bearing was going and needed replaced very soon. Not a normal problem even at 85,000 miles. Ford needs to have some major re-calls on this vehicle and year!!

Focus SE

  • 35,000 miles

I noticed a whirring sound in the front end with a little bit of wobble in the steering wheel and a definate shaking when appplying the brakes. Ford replaced the L front wheel bearing. I got the car back and it was much improved but still not right. Seems like the right side might be having the same problem. I worry because the warranty is about to expire.
