It may have just passed but i've just had to replace a front wheel bearing which was very close to collapse !
It got very hot, boiled what remained of the grease and nearly seized. I was under the impression that this couldn't happen with a noisy bearing but believe me it can.
It isn't just a car it is a BX and it's my BX. Long live the BX.

How did it get through the MOT if the bearing was that worn?

That is what I would like to know, Tim.
It was noisy when I took it in for the MOT but it passed !
