Traction Control System and wheelbearings,CV Joints

Hi All,
It is my first time at this forum. I replaced my Ford Focus 2,0L CV Joints and wheel bearings Dec 2011. After replacing I found the TCS, ABS and Breake lights on the Instrument panel lights up while driving. The CV joints was after market and did not have a split-pin nor a castle nut, only some kind of self-locking nut (that came losse-failing bearings).
Now the bearings failed on me again! After google a few things I realized that you get diffferant bearings/CV joints with the "ring" attached for the TCS, but where? (on the bearing, Hub or CV?)
Also wher can I find specs on my car according to the VIN number? (WF0AXXWPDA2T62092)

Thanks for this forum...

Silly me...
After further research I found that the Ford Focus wheel bearing is suppose to have a magnetic "strip" on one side of the bearing. The after market bearing I bought did not have the strip in, nor did the salesmen told me about it. I will exchange it tommorow, hopefully they stock the right type of bearings. The CV-joints is still a problem... And why did the bearings faill after such a short time? Might it be because the CV Joint Nut came loose and was tighten again? What should the torque be on the CV joint Nut?
And my VIN Number is not listed on the FordFleet site (WF0AXXWPDA2T62092)-South-African Model.

Thanx again..

By the way...

What is the normal life time of a Ford Focus?
Mine is a 2002 model with 251 000km on the clock. It seems like everything starts to fail on me now..

Regards,
