Wheel bearings are driving me mad
Please can any one cast some knowledge on a problem with wheel bearings i am having .I tried to cure some wheel bearing noise on a GTV TS i have recently bought and after trying to discern the correct faulty bearing by steering into a direction to make the noise go away / get less i found by steering to the right the noise went less so decided that it was a bearing on the right side (drivers side) of the car. so after reasoning it sounded like the front replaced that and the driving found no difference ! replaced the rear (at huge expense ) and the drove and found , yes no difference. So before i go further is there another way other than the tried and tested driving way ? By the way i swapped the tyres front to back on both sides to try that and it made no difference.
