When the bearings it actually showing signs of excess movement wear,grinding or play in the bearings/housing?
I asume your saying its every 30,000miles it needs done?
What make is the bearing thats been put on each time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I dont know the other previous makes but today we have ordered the actual part from Vauxhall so touch wood.
Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.
No doubt the reason for early failure if cheap aftermarket bearings have been put on in the past..if your going down the parts genuine route via Vauxhall may find the bearing will likely last of luck with the repair
