Rear wheel Bearing Gone

  clio 172
Can someone tell me if you have to press the rear wheel bearing pls. I knpw you have too on the front.

Because on my mk2 172 theres a drowning noise coming from one of the wheels. I though it was the front left so i changed the barring with my mate and drove it and the noise was still there

SO pissed.

So if anyone has any technics as to how i can find out which wheel its coming from, would be great.

Also does anyone have a guide how to change the rear wheel bearings.

spin the wheels one at a time for the rear ones hold the base of the shock any bad virbrations/noise it will be that bearing on the front just hold the spring. the rears also press out just watch you dont crack the disc.

End result

My rear discs and pads needed changing anyway. And a garage reckons the noise is coming from the rear. So some disc come with the bearings built in. So hopefully problem solved
