I always used to say it was like Ian said with wheel bearings bus with modern double row bearings in the last three I've done its been the other way round with the noise coming from the side that you put the pressure on. If its a complete hub assembly it makes it so much easier for you. all you have to do is loosen main hub nut, huge nut in the middle of wheel then jack up remove wheel and hub nut undo and split the relevant ball joints for steering and swivels then remove. refitting is a reversal of it all. Its nice and easy just needs a few specialist tools like ball joint splitters and a torque wrench for doing everything back up again.

Oh and knowing Kias prices for their spare parts for this Sedona then you may find that that price is just the bearing. get them to ring the supplier and actually find out for you.

If it is then once you've got the hub off then pressed the bearing out it'll have a number on it. if you find your local bearing supplier in the phone book they'll normally be able to sort it a bearing for half the price of the parts suppliers.

Your guide Iain is very helpful, but the last bit is the bit which does not add up to my problem, I thinks/suspect an issue with front left passenger and it has a bit of play now the drone/hum/whine does get louder the faster you go but it comes on as the car starts to turn to the left which goes against your above theory

Called by 2 different car parts suppliers today both quoted roughly the same about £75 for front left set they said it would probably be a full hub assembly for that money....I have no idea what they meant by that though

I know only too well the telltale "whine" of failing wheel bearings. I have a 2003 rio 4 dr with 114 K. I have had to change a total of 9 wheel bearings, [some front, some rear], since I bought it used with 40K. When my warrenty ran out, I decided to try the repair myself. I buy parts at auto zone for many reasons, but the best is that that will loan you tools FREE, and tell you how to do it. They sold me rear bearings, inner and outer, plus races and seals, and loaned me a tool to "press" the parts in neatly and securly. [You pay full retail for the used tool. When you return it, you get ALL your money back...or keep it if you like]. Just push the parts out from the other side with a chisel, screwdriver, whatever, and gently push the new in with the tool. The constant failure of the bearings drives me nuts, but now at least I can fix it myself at very reasonable cost.

Default Whining from the wheel

I too have heard the whining thing... i have noticed when i turn to the right the whinning stops leading me to believe that its the left bearing. I havent taken anything apart yet due to time schedule but this forum has definetly gave me an insight on what the problem may be and how to correct it.... Thanks gentleman/ and ladies.....
