Wheel bearing noise Sign In

1998 Nissan AltimaI had the right front wheel bearing and axle assmb'y replaced Nov. 2015 - 2 1/2 years ago. Sounds like, and a couple other mechances say, it's out again now. Would these guys have any obligation to honor any kind of warranty for this? Could anything else affect this breaking down again - motor mounts, alignment, etc?
I bought this car and the next day spent almost $500 to do this.

Unrelated, but also a concern...unless I use the recirculation mode for a/c, heater, etc., there's a super noxious smell coming from somewhere. I can't place it and haven't been able to figure out what this is yet.

2 1/2 years? You have to be kidding.
NOBODY would be responsible for a repair that old.

If you are getting a smell when recirc is engaged, then the odor has to be coming from inside the car.

If you are getting it when recirc is turned off, then it would be coming from outside the car.
