Dan, squeaking could be from improperly packed bearing or hub nut not tightened properly. Did you replace the races also.

the jaguar front wheel bearing comes complete with a abs sensor and bearing cover if someone has removed the cover it sounds like the air gap between sensor and the reluctor ring is to great or has someone renewed just bearing and not the hub unit like you are ment to do? have a good look at the rear of the bearing cover.
New bearing is actually good? Take wheel off of the ground, vehicle in neutral and rotate the wheel by hand and see that there are no problems with the bearing, CV Axle, or the brakes. And put some pressure on the bearing as much as you can to make sure it is not binding itself.
More than one bearing has been damaged during installation. I now own a 10 ton press and keep it in my basement for the next time I have to replace my bearings. Thank goodness I always buy in pairs.
Here's to hoping you just identified your problem.
If not, then: Have someone turn the wheel in both directions while watching the CV Axle at both ends, to make sure it isn't the problem.
One more issue: Swap your tires front to rear, and rear to front, and drive to see if your noise changed locations, indicating a tire or wheel problem.
If everything you just checked is working properly, then you know what's next.
first thing to try is swapping the wheels from front to back on both sides.
if the noise then comes from a different place, you will know it is a tyre problem and which one it is.
if the noise does not move, try jacking up each wheel, one at a time and spinning the wheel. you should be able to feel or hear a different sound if it is a bearing or joint problem. this should help you to find where the problem is and you can then investigate that wheel further
on that vehicle it,s replacement remove wheel remove brake caliper and pads remove brake caliper mount if you look on back side of spindle around area where axle comes thru you have three or four bolts remove bolts remove axle nut and hub bearing assembly comes off re-install in reverse order if this vehicle has 4 wheel abs unhook any wheel speed sensors
Check your suspension bar and check your front strut assembly, jack up the side you here the noise on and pry against the tire to see if you have any movement between the strut housing and the frame, make sure the top strut nuts are tight, if they are next check tie rod ends to see if you have any play, next pull the wheel from the top and bottom to see if it's loose if it is watch while someone else wiggles the tire, you could have a tie rod loose or a king pin loose. Also it could be a wheel-bearing nut. Let me know what you find so I can tell you how to replace it.
