Hi,<br> <br> If I make a sharp right turn, I hear a sound (very minute) but a sound coming from the front left wheel. It almost sounds like when the rotor is dirty - and the pads pressed - you get that 'chunky' sound and feel... but it's not the rotor or breaks. Have had them replaced... Do you think it is the wheel bearing? I have not driven the car in a few months, and noticed, grease (yellowish) coming out from the center of the wheel cap... Could that be oil from the bearings? Nevertheless, I ordered a bearing kit... for the left... and wanted to know how hard it would be to replace. Is this a job that needs special tools? Or should I just have someone do it for me. Please let me know if any of you have thoughts. <br> <br> Thanks,<br> Stephen

Well now - this is familiar.<br> I also rushed out and bought wheel bearings when I had a graunchy noise on fast turns and bends on my 280CE.<br> Guess what? Quite simple - turned out to be the exhaust heat shield at the manifold down-pipe which was giving a rattle under the extra torque and tilt.<br> Not to say yours is the same but it's certainly worth considering.<br> Bruce<br> Anyone need redundant front wheel bearings?
