This an aftermarket rear wheel bearing from a mate’s Freelander, which I fitted about three years ago when I owned the car. It was rumbling badly but there was no play.
This may not be the right forum, but there might be some proper engineers here who know what could have caused the damage shown above. There’s some clear galling on both the inner and outer races of one side. The grease looked cooked. The other side looked perfect - grease the right colour and ball bearings still shiny silver.
There were no foreign bodies that I could see.
