How to determine if rear wheel bearings need replaced

If they are very bad car will have loud rumble sound that can get better or worse when cornering. To really check you need to remove rear brakes and try to spin hub with no load. If it spins smooth and easy and has no rough feel or barely moves by hand the hub is bad. Most front drive cars have hub with both inner and outer bearings included. Just replaced them on brother in laws Accord last night and it was only $60 for each at Advance - $129 for both sides, whole hubs with bearings, seals, and ABS ring included.

How big of a job in replaceing laft front wheel

At first I also thought it'd be hard to do, but I tried myself with a helping hands from an old friend. Roughly less than 2 hr, if you don't have right tool, bearing press, to drive the old bearing out from and new one into the wheel knuckle, you definitely need helping hands to do that job.

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...

grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).
