    Can I ask if it is required when one front wheel bearing (passenger side) requires renewal does it follow that the other side needs renewal too?
    Might seem like a stupid question but Marquis are replacing the noisy wheel bearing under warranty and I am concerned that both might need replacing.
    Thanks in anticipation for your wise comments
    Ian.

    No... I had 2 nearside ones fail on my previous van (2005 apache 700) The drivers side was never an issue..
    I blame it all on the wife, as that's her side.. ;)

    No, one at a time is fine.

    Agree, I replaced one side about 4 years ago on my 2005 Apache, sold the van earlier this year and the other side was still fine. That was also the nearside, couldn't possibly blame my wife:).

    Thanks guys for the kind assistance- I've also been informed that it can't possibly be a female responsibility

    No as above, but might be worth asking them to repack with grease the other side if it is not the sealed type.
