How can you tell if your wheel bearings are bad... And can you replace one at a time or should you replace all 4 at the same time>..

When i am making a left turn getting into a parking space the front left wheel makes a weird noise... nothing too bad but it gets annoying.

Don't crank the wheel all the way and hold it..it'll do damage..might be steering pump..

its only the left front wheel so I thought it might be a bearing..... My front shocks are shot so after I get my new suspension installed maybe it will go away :rolleyes:

Could be a busted CV joint or CV boot. You may want to get that checked out.

because its only when its turning slow one direction its not a cv joint or bearing. if it was a cv joint youd hear ticking when driving. If it was a bearing... youd know it was a bearing. Like the car pulling hard to one direction and lots of noise and very unsmooth ride.

something to do with power steering

check for a leak when it come to the power steering check for a leak. mine has a small leak, and if not attended to it could get worse and then cause problems. typically on BMW's they leak around the hose clamp up near the PS resevoir.
