The same thing happened to my 95 Celica, the first mechanic or suspension shop replaced the front wheel bearings and about a month later the noise was back. I took it to another shop and they said that the bearing were bad because the base of the spindle assemble,where the bearing sits, was wallowed out. They replaced it and the bearings and all is good. I would have them check the spindle assembly.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Locate airbag retentions on back of steering wheel. Unbolt or unclip retention devices, and release airbag. Then: Unplug airbag electrical connector. Remove nut or bolt in center of steering wheel with pneumatic impact wrench if necessary . Using appropriate steering wheel removal tool kit, carefully remove steering wheel, paying attention to associated wires, etc. Unplug anything not accompanying wheel, or that is in the way. Pay close attention to any rods, or contact pieces associated with the horn button(s.) Replace these upon reinstall. Reverse order to install including tightening center bolt to 35-55 ft-lbs. If this is your first stg wheel removal, try an old chevy, preferrably someone else's! If inexperienced, don't risk bruising your favorite Bimmer!!! Hope this helps you make your decision. Tater Todd

Its a lot of work. but if your rdy here we go. if u are not doing this on a hoist be prepared for alot of grunting cursing and swearing.
1. raise the vehicle and put it on jack stands high enough so u can work under it safely
2. disconnect the positive battery cable
3. make sure the steering is loose. What i mean by this is: have the key in the ignition in the acc. position. this allows u to turn the wheels with less effort.
4. remove the front tires
5. remove the center caps from the axle hub.
6. next remove the retaining nutz for the axle shafts.
7. remove both outer-tie rod nuts.
8. using a small sledge hammer hit the mounting point of where the tie rods insert into the hub. not the tie rods them selves
9. next with the ties rods out turn the hub assembly outwards towards your self and remove the axle shaft end from the hub.
10. remove the axle shafts.
point of note: on some axle shaft assemblies there is a retaining clip on the shafts them selves. u must make sure this clip comes out with the shaft when u remove it. if it does not and drops in the transmission. u will be taking the trans. apart to get it out.. not fun
11. next remove the transmission to frame connector.
12. there will be 6-9 13mm bolts that connect the transmission to the engine. remove these
13 . do not separate the transmission yet.
14. disconnect the linkages for the shifter that are to the right when u face the transmission.
15 disconnect the sensor assembly from the transmission. its 3-7 wires that plug into the transmission.
16 at this point look around while u are under there to see if there is anything will will hinder the removal of the transmission. exhaust pipes. oil filter starter, transmission lines.
17 next with a prybar , seperate the transmission gently and rock it side to side to aid the removal.
18 remove the transmission from the can not stress this enough. be carefull. heavy parts can fall and break fingers and hurt you. so take your time.
19. with the transmission out remover and replace the torque converter. when replacing a trasmission always change the coverter with it. they can wear out as well and can cause premature failure of the transmission
20. to assemble, reverse the order.
21 when the transmission is in the car. fill the fluids and check for any leaks.
22 start the vehicle and check again for any abnormal sounds, leaks etc. repair as neccessary.
