Traffic front hub/ wheel bearing

I have a 2009 traffic 2 ltr dci van. It was fine untill it reached 120000 miles, since then I have changed the passenger side N/S front wheel bearing on 3 occasions. Drivers side is still original with no problem. I have used Lucus wheel bearings and have had them removed and pushed into the hub proffesionally. Once they are changed they last between 6000 and 8000 miles. The wheel is not buckled and the hub has been checked that it is not running out using a dial gauge indicator. Can anyone help with suggestions?

Re: Traffic front hub/ wheel bearing

Has the same place fitted both replacement bearings?

Maybe the bearings are being pressed in but I doubt they are doing it correctly.

The outside of the bearing should be used when pressing the bearing into the hub carrier, most people know this and will do it this way.

Then the hub needs to be fitted into the bearing, this where things can go wrong.
A lot of the time the hub is just pressed into the bearing....this is not the correct way to do it.
The inner race of the bearing needs to be supported while the hub is pressed into the bearing.

I suspect that your hub has been fitted to the bearing with no support which has cause the bearing to fail.
