Rear Wheel Bearings May Fail Due to Corrosion on Ford Focus

Problem Description and Possible Solution

In areas of high corrosion rear wheel bearings tend to fail. Ford agreed to replace these failed bearings at no cost. This program was to expire on December 31, 2002. Our technicians tell us it is unlikely Ford will replace any more of these failed bearings free of charge.

2000 Focus SE wagon. Loud droning humm at right rear. Car also seems out of Control at rear on rough or bumpy roads.
Due to heavy winters here in Canada and in some US states Ford has recalled vehicules from 2000-01 for a replacement of bearings and seals on rear wheels. Just enter your NIV and find out if your eligible, otherwise its'on your cost (200$-500$)
