Default Repeat wheel bearing failures

Wondering if anyone has experienced repeat premature wheel bearing failures? Problems started last year had a garage replace wheel bearing for mot which failed almost instantly so they fitted another one which failed. They then fitted a brand new knuckle with hub assembly which lasted almost a year but has had play in the bearing for months. I have now had the bearing replaced twice recently and it keeps collapsing
Hub nut has been torqued correctly to 320nm.

Assuming hub nut has been torqued correctly and that all these bearings have not been installed incorrectly, What else could cause a front wheel bearing to fail so quick?

Maybe the bearings were damaged when they were pressed in..
Did the same garage replace the bearings twice..?

Garage first time then myself second time. The hub seems to seperate from the bearing which is making me think the problem might be with the driveshaft as the hub nut is correctly torqued. Yesterday I removed driveshaft and got my wheel bearing kit out and pressed hub and bearing tight again and replaced shaft in hub and torqued nut to 325nm and hub assembly felt solid again but after taking it a short drive the hub assembly is loose.

Going by a-data there are two torque settings for the 2.0 hdi (90bhp)
M20 = 245 Nm
M24 = 325Nm

Have you got the full history of the car...was it involved in an accident at any stage..?

Yep mines is the nut and clip type 325nm. Not got much history and only things that I can see on that axle on mot history are wishbones, wheel bearing, and on 2 different mot's it shows tyre on that axle with ply cords showing and one excessivly worn close to legal limit.
Could bad alignment be causing this?

Interesting article davie206...
Usually when the driveshaft nut is torqued it should pull the bearing tight against the hub but for some reason after a heavy cornering and braking play is been created between the bearing and hub...

I wonder if one fitted a new bearing and torqued it up then take it for a good drive heavy cornering/braking and re-torque + alittle extra would this slove the problem..?
If not then i guess you'll have to get on a lathe and make up a few spacers...

If you need spacers for this find an engineering shop with old machinery dependant on inner bore they may have some steel shims at 1.25 inch or 1.00 inner bore which are used on milling machine spindles on horizontal mills look just like the picture
