    Usual symptom for that is a dreadful crunching noise during applying a full footbrake application whilst stationery

    front passenger groaning/moaning? if not then probably does sound like a wheel bearing although they tend to droan rather than moan

    I need to replace my o/s front wheel bearing too.

    Is this a PITA job that's best left to the garage?

    I'm having the same problem, as shown here - http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=129503

    F***ed if I know either! Older cars were simple to find if the wheel bearings were fubar.

    If you have a moderate amount of tools then its quite a do-able job.
