    Hi guys, so im pretty sure my front right wheel bearing on my 04' 325ci is getting worn out. Heck, its been making noise for the past two years (about 20k miles) or so and now its getting a little more annoying, not really loud but just... annoying. I have not had any trouble driving my car so...

I didn't think much of it, and kept going - then I changed lanes and heard a grinding-like-groan. Now as soon as I even touch my wheel basically it sounds like a grinding-groan. I had my dad...
