I have recently had one rear and one front wheel bearing changed and was hoping this would get rid of the grinding noise at the front. However I have found that it still makes the grinding noise. even when stationary when I have my foot on the accelerator, please help!

Re: LDV PILOT 200grinding when stationary
If the noise does not go away when the vehicle is not moving then your problem is in the engine or one of the components.
Belt Tensioner Bearing
Power Steering Pump
Try to identify the source by having somebody step on the gas while you check the noise. If not sure where it is coming from, get a 3 ft. piece of garden hose,place one end on your ear and touch the items I mentioned, making sure to avoid touching movig parts.
If the noise comes from the Power Steering Pump, check the fluid, if Ok,Replace it. The same goes for the other items.

There is a little difference between the front and rear. The days of packing wheel bearing is almost over. The front bearing you have to pull the hub and change to bearing. The rear wheel you have to change out the hub bearing and all. The front is a sealed bearing and not serviceable. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.
in a front wheel drive car you need to first disconnect all sensors take off wheels take off controll arm,half shaft, ball joint, front,side,and rear motor mounts remove front exhaust pipe, change control rod, stationary control rod, unhook battery, remove joint shaft, starter, tie rod end, right and left axle..... there is a lot of disassemble but if you are ready for the job then go to autozone.com sign up its free then click on repair manuals you will find
all of your info there....good luck
WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

My advise is when u get a humming noise when banking left or right. Its beter to change both left and right wheel bearing and ball joints. Cause if u think about it those parts are put on at the same time . So if u think about it they have the same where in Terre . left or right hope this helps you.
It's probably not that the wheels are moving at a different speed. It sounds like a simple alignment issue to me. Installing a bearing could have thrown it off. You should just have a simple alignment job done.
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
