This paper highlights failure analysis of wheel bearing of the TATA 1210 vehicle. It examines the life span of a journal bearing during its application in the required area. It involves the experimental results (Surface roughness and hardness) of tests done in normal conditions, which affects the life and efficiency of bearing. The life estimated for the bearing is approximately 60,000 km. of run under normal conditions. The test results show that the failure of the bearing occurred due to low maintenance, which caused gradual wear of the various surfaces viz. roller surface, cone OD and cup ID. The remedial actions suggested include greasing of bearings for every 15,000 km. of run and routine check-up periodically
