Post bearing noise....

Phil here, in the UK. I have a 2001 CLK Kompressor, and notice a typical bearing noise, "whooooooooooom" that goes worse when the car is loaded in a long right turn. I have stripped and checked and repacked the fronts, and they are as-new. I have been in the auto industry but not on MB products, since I was 16, and I am 59 now, and my experience tells me that it isn't likely to be propshaft bearing noise. How prone are the rears to hum on one side or the other at 95,000 miles?? How tight is the rear flange onto the splined shaft?? Is a puller almost always needed?? Any cute tricks for confirming that it is a rear wheel bearing before Take it apart?? is offline
