Rear Wheel Bearing

Rumbling noise which changes frequency at different speeds = wheel bearing.
Noise subject to turning/going straight - outer CV joint ( but
typically front only)
I believe that my experience with a rear bearing failure was
accelerated by a malfunctioning rear caliper parking brake mechanism
which created substantially heating to the wheel hub. Of course AFTER
I rebuilt the rear caliper and fixed the operation of the parking
brake did I notice the wheel bearing noise....
I ended up removing the rear wheel hub assembly from the car and
using a 12 ton press to remove and replace the bearing.
