Replacing rear wheel bearings AGAIN


my Abarth Punto Evo has 124 000 km on the clock, I already had to change a pair of rusty rear wheel bearings a few years ago when it had only like 40 000 km.

Now the sound of metal grinding itself to dust has come back, I located it to the left rear wheel (disapeares on sharp left turns, gets stronger on sharp right turns).

Why is it that those bearings will not stay functional, is it ill design stemming from the Abarth factory tuning, or does the regular Punto evo also suffer from these problems?

I had a 1995 Bravo before, drove it during 15 years through heavy winters and stuff, it had a few problem, too, but the wheel bearings always ran fine until the end.

And no, I do not do river crossings with my Abarth. It even has a covert parking spot...
my car and I have problems beyond the dreams of analysts...
get us a shrink, please !
