I PUT MY ON AXLE JACKS TO DETERMINE WHICH WHEEL BEARING NEEDS REPLACING BUT AM UNABLE TO HEAR WHICH SIDE NEEDS REPLACING. HOW DO I DETERMINE THIS WITHOUT RANDOMLY CHOOSING A SIDE AND RISK BEING WRONG.

Front wheel bearing to be replaced. Not sure which one.

If it's safely supported, listen next to each one underneath with a stethoscope while running it in gear. One will be questionable, but then the other one will be obvious by the rumbling noise.
