can a rear carrier bearing be detected as going bad before it goes bad? on 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

2007 sport trac v6 4x4 brought to ford dealer to have checked over because warranty was running out in october. no problems found. 3 months and 3000 miles later the rear drive shaft carrier bearing blows out. Is this something that was missed on the inspection?

The simple anwser is no unless a noise was evident on a road test. When a bearing fails it can fail rapidly.

Depends on the experience of the tech. Sometimes it's not as obvious. So the answer is Yes and No.
