Default drive shaft / wheel bearing problem

hi i have a mk 1 saxo about a month ago my drive shaft went so i took it off and got a new 1.
the one the car parts supplyer sold me snaped as soon as i moved the car so i took it back off and went back again thay then got my old shaft and messured it against others to get the right one turns out its a mk2 drive shaft in a mk1 saxo but the problem is my car keep chewing wheel bearings in the same side as the new shaft it has had 4 in it now 2 used (whole legs) 2 new any ideas.......

What wheel bearings are you using? Cheap bearings are notable for not lasting.

Make sure you have got the correct driveshaft and bearing or the bearing won't last two minutes. I can't remember when they changed over off the top of my head but I think it was January 99 when the later shafts and bearings were used.

Careful you're not overtightening the hubnut and causing unessacary stress to the bearing.

Only other thing I can suggest is getting your suspension checked out to make sure nothing else is damaged which will be putting stress on those componenets.

there is two types of driveshaft ends/wheel bearings.

tapered and non-tapered.

If you fit a different shaft to wheel bearing you'll go through wheel bearings very quickly - check the end of your old shaft against the new one, make sure it's the same.

Changover was 1999.


Don't count on them ordering by reg plate mate. They did that for my shafts and I ended up with the wrong ones.
