Ford Falcon: Broken wheel bearing

Asked by John Agst

My 1997 EL Falcon had a droning sound coming from the back wheel, which was diagnosed as a faulty wheel bearing. I had it replaced with a Repco bearing, but within 10 km it collapsed and I took it back to the dealer and they replaced it with another Repco bearing. This one lasted two days before the same thing happened. I then replaced it with a genuine Ford bearing and it too is starting to make rumbling sounds from the back wheel. The mechanic has told me that the axle could be bent. Do you have you any ideas what would be causing this problem?

It's not a problem with the bearings, there is something else wrong, perhaps with the axle as your mechanic has suggested.
