I've had the same as James, whine/noise from bearing but no play. Reason seemed to be water had got inside the bearing and corroded races. Very bad looking but no play whatsoever.

And, just to remind: use ONLY well-known brands, as SKF. Cheapo ones do not tighten properly and after this kind of a extreme operation you certainly do not want to do it all over again just for a bad bearing.

James didn't feel able to do the bearing change so he sold the car. I bought it and have been using it as my daily driver for over a year.

Last week the noise changed. It is too loud to ignore now so today's task is to fit the bearing that James very generously included in the sale (I just hope he was supplied with the right one).

I still don't know which bearing it is (left rear, right rear or prop centre) so the first task will be to get the car up on axle stands and get the wheels spinning (must remember to press the TC button first..........)

In the meantime, I found turning the music volume up fixed the bearing for a few months. ::)

Much to my relief the job is progressing as planned.

There was a brief interlude when I couldn't get the brake disc/drum to let go of the hub and a longer interlude when I discovered that I couldn't use my triple-square spline bit to get the backplate bolts out because the hub was in the way.

The new bearing is safely installed and the hub/shaft is half pulled in to place. Having another interlude now while assisting with the monsters dinner/bath/bedtime. Once they are tucked up in bed I should be able to finish putting it all back together :y

Finished at 10pm :) then noticed that there was a locking washer left over that I should have fitted to the drive shaft nut after I had torqued it up to 220 ft lb >:(

After stopping   for something to eat I took the CV joint off again to fit the washer and finally finished at midnight

He did the other side for the same price when it turned out to be the wrong one first time. ::)

The bearing goes quiet when loaded :y

Last one I did on a Renault 16, loading increased the noise, hence my diagnosis, albeit based on 40 year old experience. :y

Same with the o/s front bearing on my V70.Noise present at all times but corner it so weight transferred over o/s wheel and noise increased.Replaced o/s bearing and all good again.

Loads are different front and rear... Also the Omega stub axle is secured from behind, whereas WWD and others tend to have the nut OUTSIDE.  ;)
