Re: new scoob 95 uk 2000 wheel bearing advise !!!

Is the noise front or back? this whinning your hearing nomally get the whinning at any speed especially cruising at 60mph round that when the bearing gets hot it gets louder but first Id check your oil levels in the gearbox and rear diff as when you run low on oil in these they sound very like a wheel bearing problem like the same whinning
Also front or back where ever noise is jack up car securly on axle stands hold the wheel 12-6 poistion like a clock example rock the wheel if you feel a good bit of play its the bearing worn you might get a tiny bit of play say 2mm freeplay any more renew the bearing on hub, replace as a set of 2 either side then while you rocking the wheel also just have some one press the brake pedal and hold it down try rock the wheel again 12-6 positon if the play gone now its definite wheel bearing as the brakes holding the hub in one place so no freeplay
Stripping it down is not the hardest of jobs but you will have to get bearing pressed out at a garage as they do need a fair bit of pressure to pop out and fit the oil seals correct taking note how last ones came off hope it helps
