    Question coupe rear wheel bearings??

    how can i tell if a wheel bearing has gone??? there is like a whirring noise and gets louder as i increase speed... im pretty sure that this is the cause but how do i tell which side it is... noise is coming from the rear so im guessing its a rear wheel... how much is a replacement one??? its for a 1.8 se2 coupe it has abs and traction control... is this a diy job??

    any help appreciated...

    cheers

    Try jacking the back up and spinning the rear wheels also check you tyres coz if there unevenly worn then that can sound like bearing

    what i would suggest m8 is if it is the wheel bearing then get both because usually when one goes the other will follow soon after.

    well was the case with my front.. 3 monthts apart
