Owners may be interested to know that my 2006 S40 2.4i has had a wheel bearing needing replacement at 74K miles. The location is right front.
The symptoms: whirring noise at 20 mph and up. No noise when spinning the wheel by hand off the ground and only slightly noticeable resistance to rotation by hand. Took two visits to the dealer service to diagnose it.
