Default Wheel Bearing like grumble sound

My wifeís 2008 XC70 D5 135k Miles has a rumble like sound from O/S front wheel. It has a classic knackered wheel bearing grumble with usual symptoms. It gets louder the more miles into a trip you do, is worse when cornering to the left & under braking. Iíve changed the bearing & itís exactly the same & sure itís not the wheel because itís the same with a set of winter steels on. Any ideas what to try next? Thanks

You sure it was the right bearing you changed?

I was convinced the grinding noise from the brake disks was from the nearside but could see nothing wrong, untill I checked the off side and it became obvious.

With that milage I would change both as the other one will be not far behind it, but that's me.

Cheers that sounds like a good shout, especially as N/S bearings normally go before O/side in my experience. Itís a shame theyíre press in bearings unlike the old style bolt on or iíd Be able to do it myself.

Iíve been caught like this in the past. First time I encountered a front wheel bearing problem was on my daughterís Ford Orion ( the first FWD car I had worked on.) I asked around and was advised that it would be the bearing which was loaded when cornering. ie cornering left so it will be the right hand side bearing. Wrong, it was the unloaded bearing which increased in noise. I only found out after replacing the wrong bearing, so then I had to replace the other one.
