Which statement is correct? I struggle to read things without punctuation marks sometimes. Either way it's not really the common symptom for a bad wheel bearing. Does it make a grumbling noise when turning one way, but not the other?

Cheers,
Glenn

Worth checking one or more of your rear brake shoes haven't broken free from their pins and clips.

My guess is it probably is not a bad wheel bearing, BUT worth having a look to see if something is out of place and making contact with the brake disk or wheel - like and ABS sensor cable or actual brake caliper anti-rattle springs.

Cheers,
Glenn

I had an Austin 1800 some years ago and the nearside front bearing went on that while on the motorway taking a friends girlfriend and her kids to Bristol. It went as we were passing Nottingham.
Trust me, the grinding noise doesn't go away when you apply the brakes
By the time we got to Bristol the housing had split as well. My mate down there knew someone who worked in a garage, and he put a steel band round it to hold it together. It went again a few weeks later and the front dropped significantly. I just left it on a side street and called the scrappys. They wanted £10 to pick it up. I said no, but a couple of days later went past the road and it was gone

Not a wheel bearing but you do have to take the wheel off and make a visual inspection for anything loose.

For information, I had a similar noise and it was a small piece of gravel wedged next to the pads. Gravel driveways! Hate em!
