    Bloody squeaks now!

    i hear a repeating squeak at low speeeds (which is proportional to my speed) at the nearside front so i assume its the hub bearing. is there any way of greasing these up etc or is it going to be replace only?

    no way to grease, it is a sealed unit. pop a new hub unit in and you will be sorted. i have replaced 3 in the last 12 months for squeeking, it is down to the inners running dry and breaking up

    Try a carefull squirt of wd40 on the inside face of the hub( where the drive shaft goes in) on mine that cured it and ive done 40,000 miles since it does depend how dried out the seal has got though.
