My KA had the front O/S hub bearing replaced at 57,500 miles because the bearing was whining and felt rough when free wheeled on the jack.
Now at 63,000 miles I'm getting a knocking sound coming from the front of the car at low speed ( less than 10 mph ). The knocking sound is increases with vehicle speed and at first I thought it might be a bad spot on the brake disc.
After some investigation the discs look OK. The front O/S wheel has play in it top to bottom. This play is reduced but not eliminated when the brake pedal is pressed.
The Haynes manual suggests a problem with the hub bearing.
Anyone got any experience with recurrent hub bearing probs on a KA?
Why would the same bearing fail after only 5,500 miles?
Any ideas anyone?
Or is there some adjustment in the front bearing? Does something need tightening up?
Thanks in advance.
