Loud roaring noise when driving. Noise even louder when driving in curves and removing feet from accelerator

What tools do I need to replace the front end bearings or do they have to be pressed out and in? Will I also need to replace the wheel seals when replacing the bearings?

My best advice is not to replace your bearings on your own unless you know to do it perfectly.get an authorized service personnel to do it. since incorrect torque(tightening ) to the wheels may drastically affect your tyres, engine performance as well as your mileage.

Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

There is no way to estimate cost until you know the exact case of the noise. See the dealer for a test drive so a tech can listen to it.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub
