    Just out of curiosity, what are the symptoms of a busted bearing? I suspect I might have one.

    thought i would tag this on this post as it seems relevant, i need to change the front drivers side bearing (GLS four stud) what are my options, is it a case of biting the bullet and getting a new hub from Mitsubishi, can a new bearing be fitted, if yes does anyone have the replacement bearing number as we have a press at work

    The bearing itself can't be pressed out...

    As Stuart said... jack car and grab top and bottom of wheel and move to and fro. My left front was trashed. Also made a noise if you turned steering wheel left or right whilst in motion but noise faded in straight line.
