You must have had a defective bearing.  I've replaced several but none more
than once.  Mine sit for years at a time and I don't have any problems.  The
vendors should have a lube tool.  I have one but haven't ever used it so I
can't tell you how well it works.  Were you careful to push on the shaft to
press it into the engine cover and press on the shell when installing in the

I replaced my second fan bearing in two years. I drive the car about two 
thousand miles per year. That can't be normal. I guess sitting around all
harms this bearing as well. Can this bearing be lubricated some how?
