FOR YA WELL WHAT ABOUT DAMAGE FROM CONTAMINATION YEAH WELL CONTAMINATION IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT
BUT THAT HAPPENS WHEN FOREIGN MATERIALS ENTER THE BEARING NOW WATER AND HARD PARTICLES ARE
THE MOST COMMON THE DAMAGE STARTS ON THE ROLLING CONTACT SURFACES AND EVENTUALLY LEADS TO FLAKING
AND SPALLING THE CONDITION IS WORSE IN GREASE APPLICATIONS CAUSE YOU CAN’T GET THAT CONTAMINATION
OUT OF THE GREASE NOW LET’S LOOK AT THIS LARGE TAPERED ROLLER BEARING RING HERE THAT
WAS SENT TO OUR ANN ARBOR TECHNICAL CENTER FOR EVALUATION WELL THIS IS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE
OF WATER DAMAGE AND WHEN WATER AND GREASE MIX TOGETHER IT FORMS AN ACID AT ALL THE METAL
TO METAL CONTACTS IN THE BEARING SO YOU SEE ALL OF THESE SMALL LINES YEAH THAT’S ACTUALLY
ACID ETCHING CORROSION SO OVER TIME WHAT HAPPENS IS THOUGH THIS MAY NOT LOOK LIKE A LOT OF
DAMAGE IT EVENTUALLY TURNS INTO THIS LARGE SPALL IN THE LOAD ZONE SO HOW CAN THIS BE
AVOIDED WELL THIS TYPE OF FAILURE CAN OFTEN BE AVOIDED BY USING THE RIGHT SEALS AND SEALING
TECHNIQUES BY USING THE CORRECT RE LUBRICATION AND MAINTENANCE INTERVALS AND PERHAPS BY MAKING
HOUSING MODIFICATIONS TO HELP WATER DRAIN

    I have a similar car that you have. 2001 Accord. What kind of fuel mileage are you getting?

    The sad thing is, is that that NSK bearing was one of their poorer productions. I have an Integra with 350K miles on it, with 3 original bearings, the fourth was replaced around 100-150K ago with Timken. I had wheel hum come back, and naturally assumed that it was coming from the unreplaced side. But upon further investigation, I realized that it was the "new" Timken bearing with half the miles of the other three. I also have an Accord with 290,000 miles all original bearings. This time, I'm putting an NSK back in again.

    I'm trying to figure this out but bearings fail because the grease dries out. Trying to see if a needle attachment and grease gun can pump grease into the bearings, if so bearing will last forever
