Installation errors during the replacement of wheel bearings are quite 
common. I found one A4 with an almost finger tight only left front wheel shaft 
center bolt. Two others had rear wheel bearings with completely loose hub nuts.   
The installers also often push/and or apply pressure on the wrong bearing races 
when installing new bearings. In addition a lot of mechanics don't think a 
torque wrench and/or factory specifications for tightening suspension components 
are necessary at all.
