    Default Lost left wheel bearing

    Left wheel bearing went out last evening on my wife's renagade. We were within 35 miles of home after almost 200 mile trip. Left it sat went and got trailer to bring home. Glad we didn't ride any further as bearing was completely apart when I disassembled this morning . Will have replacement tomorrow thanks napa. Thankful for the info I have read here on this subject to help in replacing it . Will try and post some pics.

    Replace them both.

    I hope you were able to get a non-Chinese bearing.

    The Chinese bearings are $*** !

    I get Japanese (Timken or Toyo) shipped from France from my supplier.

    Sold and used Chinese bearings for Lehman Trikes and it got so that 1 out of 5 were failing (not enough grease).

    Haven't used a Chinese sealed bearing for over 7 years for anything.

    When I built the Harbor Freight Chinese trailer, it had Chinese bearings, obviously. One had plenty of grease, the other was like almost dry. I repacked both of them (not sealed) just so I know what is in there. Don't trust them at all.

    You will find Japanese parts are way better than Chinese

    IMO, the Japanese take more pride in their products

    And just think, 50 years ago we were complaining about Japanese junk in our market place, now we are begging for it. America got out of the bearing business in 1980.
