    Every time I turn left there is a sort of drone/hum coming from front right wheel area...could this be the bearing? I jacked the car up and tried to rock the wheel as they would at MOT, but no movement discernible. Anyone have an idea what this would be? Car is s Golf MkV 2.0tdi.

    You will never see any free play in these and yes the do fail BUT also rear ones can sound like the front and are more prone to going AND the rear tyres on the Golf 5 platform can cause the same noise.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    That's interesting, thanks. At times I have thought the noise was from the rear, so I suppose we'll see, come MOT in a few weeks. I've had a look at both front and rear replacement procedures, seem to be pretty straightforward jobs. Thanks again

    Meant to ask - is there a way of determining bearing wear, if the wheel-rocking test doesn't show anything?

    The noise when spinning it off the deck, it is an MOT failure now, one of my techs Golf 5 failed for it a week or so ago.

    I have just done one on an A3 8P which is the same, the worst bit is the M18 XZN bolt, 180Nm+180 degrees...

    Did a test yesterday, span both front wheels with them up in the air - couldn't detect any noise or roughness at all. Have to move to the rears! Though I did find that the ns cv gaiter had no retaining band, with the result that the driveshaft outer bearings have been exposed to god knows what for god knows how long. Don't you just hate former owners...
