Wheel bearings are driving me mad
My 2000 gtv TS has a noisy wheel bearing and so i thought i would tackle myself, So after road testing to discern what bearing i thought it was by the steering and trying to find when the noise went away/ lessened.
Having found that when i steered to the right it went quieter that it must be the right had to be the right hand side bearing i decided that it sounded like the front bearing and when after replacing that bearing i took it for a drive and it was exactly the same i reasoned that it must be the rear and after replacing that one after getting a shock at the price found no difference i am now reluctant to shell out for another bearing without being certain as to the correct bearing and after replacing the bearing using what i thought was a tried and tested way of finding the correct side then i would like to just ask any of you guys and girls out there if there is another way i might try?
By the way i swapped the wheels front to back on both sides to see if it was the tyres.
