I bought a 2004 used Focus LX TD DI last November and have been very pleased with my purchase. About 3 weeks ago I became aware of a regular speed related binding noise from the rear, and my local garage said I needed a new wheel bearing.

This was done at a cost of around 120 and all was well, except this week I have noticed a similar noise coming from the front - the same garage now tells me that one of the front wheel bearings is now going.

Is this a known problem with this model, or am I just unlucky, and should I have the other two bearings changed at the same time?

TIA

Have something to contribute?

Interesting thought! The front tyres are Accieieta and the rear are Energy, 195/60/R15 on alloys.
