Hi,

I'm on my way to buy new wheel bearing and the oem from dealership would cost me 305$ each. I saw a Febest, Skf and FAB for more than half of the price. Are these good brand? Febest is the least expensive by far.

What do you think about that ?

Hi Julien
> mind me asking few questions ; why do you need to replace the bearing? what symptoms you had to decide that it was needed new and how many miles you had on the car?
> the reason I asked is I'm having an intermittent humming sound (kinda rubbing metal) when I turn right slowly while pulling in or out of parking

-thanks!

Found a TSB (http://uberlame.com/a6_tsb/Brakes/Brakes%20make%20moaning%20or%20muh%20noise%20when% 20accelerating%20from%20stop%20or%20turning%20at%2 0slow%20speeds.pdf) that may be causing that sound on my front wheel
