That bearing was replaced couple month ago. Sound is not "mechanical", it 
sounds like air.

Bearing sounded differently.

guilty as charged. Had codes read before (first time I posted about problem 
couple month before) and there was nothing. But didn't now. I will have them 
read today. May be something came out.

I found them pretty cheap but hate to order just to "try"
Because if it's coil - I will go with 1.8 coils conversion
