The car has developed quite a grinding sound when cornering to the right on the front drivers side. So today I jacked it up and wow! I've never seen so much play in a bearing before. Perheps it's not too unsuaul but for me it's seemed very, very excessive. I'm surprised it passed it's MOT last year. We've done next to no miles this year what with working from home 100% of the time during. I can't imagine a bearing would just fail so fast.

Anybody know roughly the cost/time a garage will chage for wheel bearings?

Also while torquing the nuts back up (I removed the wheel to take a nosey behind) I discovered two of them wont torque. They get hand tight then tighten a bit more with the wrench but then just seems to keep spinning. Never experieicned this before. It's almost like the bolts have become loose on the hub or something. Anybody know what's going on and how can I tighten? I thinking it might be new hub time also.

Actually thinking about it perhaps the threads are knackered on the nuts. I'll move them to another stud and see if the problem follows the nut.

It is either the nut threads being stripped or the wheel stud slipping in the hub.
The wheel studs are press-fit into the hub and if they are rotating as you try to tighten the wheel nut then you may need a new hub depending on if the spline marks in the hub have been stripped or on the studs.
