Thank you mcdonalds drive through,,, without your acoustics I wouldnt had heared the crunching sound whilst slowly moving coming from the rear near side wheel.. new bearing needed.. begs the question ,should bearings be replaced in pairs?? As I had the off side replaced last month...

The frequency e51 bearing fail (often but at irregular intervals) probably means it is worth doing them all every 3 years, or as soon as you hear them. They fail fast 50 (front) to 100 (rear) miles (ime) once noise can be heard.
