    Question 04 with a front passenger grind

    Well, my 04 seems to have developed a small grind that sounds like the front passenger wheel. I am thinking that it may be the bearings.

    Thoughts?

    The conventional test for wheel bearing failure is to: (a) jack up the suspect wheel and check for play by holding the top and bottom of the wheel and moving it back and forth; and (b) spinning the wheel to detect the grinding noise.

    The only trick to verifying the noise while driving the car is to make sure the noise is not tire noise, which can be very similar. Since it is the passenger side you might have a passenger assist by listening out of the window. You can also swap the tires front to back if tire condition appears to be a factor.
