Fiesta front wheel bearing

Recommended Posts

Our 03 fiesta front wheel bearing housing has NO groove to retain the new bearing, two months ago we had a new one fitted, but after a while the bearing started to move out causing the housing to grind on the disc, I now have bought a new bearing that comes with circlip and new nut, but am  baffled as to what stops the bearing moving in the housing again, I understand it can't go one way as it pushes up to a lip, however there is nothing at the hub end ???

would have thought the circlip would have held the bearing in place after being pressed into the hub got any pics?

No, there is no circlip groove, i think this model and year doesn't use the circlip supplied.

had the previous bearing rubbed the housing you can get bearing lock just like thread lock but for bearings try this it might help. if u know and machinist u could get a grove machined in. apart from that I don't know what to suggest.
