Question 97 Front Wheel Bearings ??

I just picked up a 97 318i recently and it has the dreaded "humm" coming from the front suspension. NOT bad (yet), but I'm almost certain it's the front wheel bearings. "May" be the tires (need replaced) though.

Q: Are the front wheel bearings on the 3-Series repackable/replaceable like on most other rear wheel drive vehicles ? Or are they the integrated PITA ones like on FWD vehicles ?

Any "How-To" Articles/Diagrams available on any websites to replace front wheel bearings on 3 Series ?

TIA

Thumbs up

Just bought a set of Bridgestone Potenza G019s.

Front end howling went away totally!
