Re: Suspect Wheel Bearing Noise 156
Wheel bearings are a pain.
It is really difficult to figure out which one is at fault.
I replaced all 4 on the wife's Polo before getting the right one and it seems that way on the Fiat (2 rears done, 2 fronts left to do).
Droning isn't really anything but bearings in my experience.
Strangely I thought the sound was coming from the back on the Polo, fixing the faulty front wheel bearing last.
The only thing I thought might help is to put the car on the MOT station's rolling road and go to each wheel for a listen as it turns.
