Default help!

Hi all! I'm new to this site other than visiting to read threads. I have a question, i have a 97 sl2 (manual) and just within the last 2 to 3 months replaced the passenger side wheel bearing. Now after driving 20 to 30 miles on that new bearing, it started the whining/grinding noise again. Being broke and thinking since it is newish surely it's something else so i kept driving. The whining went away and left behind the grinding and it proceeded to get worse. Finally i took everything off and discovered an almost completely gone bearing literally just a bit left. So my question is what could be causing them to continuously go bad/grind out? Thanks in advance for any help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Welcome to the Saturnfans Forums! I don't know what to recommend to you about your problem unless there's a bad steering knuckle which may also be causing you trouble here - just a guess. Better yet, re-post this message in the S Series Tech Forum where there are many more people with knowledge of these cars and who could be helpful to you. It's also possible that this problem has been written about by others in the past so search through both S Series Forums as well.

Hi and welcome. To make it easier for you, here's a link to the S-series tech forum:

http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=39

I have a 1993 SW2, but have not experienced that problem. I've seen some people complain about some brands of bearings vs. others.... you can either look for it, or just post the thread in the tech forum. There are some very knowledgeable people who are also very helpful.

Good luck!
