Re: Right Front Wheel Bearing
Sometimes knucke bearings have different sizes, like one side has 4.5, then the other side is 4.6. just make sure that the components are alligned well and if in case a rubber hammer is available, do use it, just apply more grease on the bearing hub, then try to use the rubber hammer to punch the bearing back. please refer to the picture below for the assembly

Could be a rear wheel bearing that is bad. Being half deaf might not help so much in a noise related symptom. Best might have to take it to repair shop. Just have them pin point which one or what is the problem and do it yourself.
get both front wheels of the ground. now spin each wheel and with one hand grab the strut coil spring. you will be able to feel the vibration. Compare both sides and you will be able to tell which one is bad.
It's most likely the left wheel bearing that's causing the noise, when turning to the right the weight of the car shifts to the left placing more load on the left wheel bearing and takes load off the right bearing.
Unfortunately you do not always get "play" in the bearing and they are unserviceable. Replace the entire unit. Here are the instructions for replacement. They bolt into place making it pretty easy to do. Soak the CV shaft which pertrudes from the hub where the nut goes with a good rust penetrant to ease in removal.
Removal & Installation
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Front wheelWheel Speed Sensor (WSS) electrical connectorBrake caliper and bracketRotorDriveshaft nut
Install a front hub removal tool to the wheel bearing/hub assembly with three wheel nuts. Use the tool to push the driveshaft out of the wheel bearing/hub.
Remove the wheel bearing/hub assembly and discard the bolts.
Install or connect the following:
Wheel bearing/hub assembly using new bolts and torque them to 96 ft. lbs. (130 Nm)New drive shaft nut and torque it to 118 ft. lbs. (160 Nm)Brake rotorFront caliper with the bracketWSS electrical connectorFront wheel
Jack up the wheel that may have the bad wheel bearing and position your left or right hand at the top of the wheel and the other hand at the bottom of the wheel and rock from top to bottom if there is over 1 cm of play your wheel bearing needs to be replaced and if there is excesive play from left to right your rack ends need to be gresed if the have a grease nipple or replaced hope i was some help
