New front bearings new grinding Sign In

2010 Honda Accord 2.4 160,00 miles

Just had new bearings put in passenger side after driving just 100 miles the grinding is back. How can this be? It is much more prominent when turning left. No real pull or vibration at highway speeds. Suggestions...?

Do you mean a new, front hub/bearing? Hope you spun the old one to know it was bad it could have been the other side! Can't know for sure without it in your hands unless wildly bad.
Other is new can mean substandard metal and quality checked or not shows right up as bad like this.
The other thing is you may be fooled by a brake or backing plate shield and yes turning can make that feel like a bearing so can a tire some that even look good.
Do you have the old bearing? See if it's bad now. Should spin and coast in hand without a sound. If so that one was good and problem was something else or the other side,

had a shop press the old one out and new one in. The first one in they ruined and had to get another. I was wondering if they may have ruined this one pressing it in.

Or you may not have tightened the axle sufficiently.

That's another indication of a failed installation of the wheel bearings. Stop driving this until it gets resolved.

Update:

Further inspection reveals,we didn’t have a bearing. We had bad bearingS. Turns out both sides were bad and left masked the symptoms of the right. New kit ordered. Should resolve the issue.

Good find! Problem was probably they got wet or submerged. I almost never find both sides bad without a common cause like that and water would do that,
