    The front wheel bearing is a cartridge type wheel bearing and is not "repackable" like older cars. It is a larger job to do and requires pressing in the new bearing with a hydraulic press. Have the noise checked out prior to jumping to conclusions.A failing wheel bearing will normally make noise wheel wheel is "loaded" on turns under speed. Could it be a brake noise?
