Default Bearings

Are front bearings supposed to be even a little loose???? My GXP is at the dealer now getting the front left bearing checked.

I agree with Justin. Should be no play.

I didn't think so just wanted to make sure. Thanks for your relpy. One of the service righters said there will be very little play in the bearings.

I would fix it my self but its falls under the extended warranty so why should i pay to replace. I have not heard from the dealer yet, i'm sure they will say it'* ok. I'm driving to Florida next month i need it fixed not ok.

They are going to replace the bearing but they told me I've got a lot of carbon build up so any ideas that will get rid of it and I've got a brake job to do also, they want to charge me $142 per rotor I can get a whole kit that amount almost anyway.

must be trying to make back the free bearing job, tell them no way. just have them do the warranty work and do the rotors yourself if they really need done.
