Yellow Blaze 72 & ReiRey,

I want to check in to make sure you’re not having a concern. If so, please don’t hesitate to PM me with your full name, VIN, approximate mileage, best daytime phone number, and dealer name/state so I can escalate it up to your regional customer service managers.

It’s best to take your car to the dealer for repairs, hotleadsingerguy. Drop me a line with any questions you have.

WizeGuyDezignz,

Hopefully you're not doing any "stunt flyin’.” LOL

My rear wheel bearings were replaced at 7600 miles!! If you hear a sound that wasn't there before, trust your ears and take the car in.

I took mine in every 5,00 miles at 20,000 told then vibration and like you said sounds like a bad u-joint always no problem found and low profile tires have more road noise, why do they treat use like where 15 years old with a learners permit.
So tired of dealer crap I fixed it my self at 46,000 miles when one night it sounded like the wheels were going to fall off. Might take the extremely loose bearings in and see if I can get a refund... LOL
What's funny is they couldn't find it with there 200.00+ chassis ears but I could with my 20.00 home made one.

What was the cost of parts and how hard were they to replace?

Edit: Just found this how-to thread on an older Focus. Is it pretty much the same?
