I just removed my strut last night and the strut bearing went rolling under the car when I turned the strut upside down.  Also I took this picture from the wheel housing looking up at the strut towers.   Did I have this seperation you are speaking about?  I was suprised to find blue color when looking up at the top of the strut tower.

  In my opinion, which is often warped, isn't one of the failure mechanisms
the separation of the bearing from the housing creating a rattling and
thunking. The bearing is only pressed into the housing. This has happened to
my UrQ countless times with the blue correct bearings.
