Hi all.

42k on the clock and about to have fitted (next week) THIRD SET OF FRONT WHEEL BEARING units.

Anyone else had as much trouble with these sealed units?

I know the 2 litre diesel is a heavy engine but this is unacceptable or have I just been unlucky?

Cheers

Very strange that you have had this problem.

Question:- Have you got the standard wheels and tyres fitted, as changing them for none standard ones with a different offset can put a lot of stress on the front wheel bearings, and causing premature failure...

stef123 also as a good point, you could try a different make..
