Default Wheel Bearing

How do you know your wheel bearing is going bad? What's the sound it makes? How do I check if it's going bad?

Bump. I just started hearing this weird humming noise that seems to be coming from the driver's side when my window is down.

or if you have azenis on with stock exhast and muted stereo

if you start turning and you hear a grinding noise, and check it when the car is on the ground, just try to wiggle the wheel, you'll be able to tell if it's going bad

i don't have a press to work with, but how much would this cost to get fixed. i know i'll probably need to replace my passenger-side front soon

When I replaced my brake rotors and bearings on my Accord which is hub-over-rotor making it a PITA I just took the knuckle assembly to a machine shop and had them disassembly everything and reassemble it all. Tokk them like an hour and cost me 25 a side. Well worth it IMO. But if you take just your bearing/hub assembly in with the new bearing it'll probably be much cheaper since they don't have to do so much work.

Yup, it sounds like a very loud howling tire sound. I had to blast the stereo to drone out the sound on the highway. Just had both of my fronts changed about a month ago...no more annoying sound and no more looseplay in the steering.
