It's usually not a wheel bearing problem. People have noisy tires with belts separating, dealers like to make money, so they play along with the "wheel bearing" Kool-aid.

Okay, so I changed the gasket and (drumroll)... no gunk. None. Some varnish color, but it looks the same as it did 60k ago when I last did it.

Did they buy you dinner and drinks, talk to you nice, and promise to still respect you in the morning too? If not, I would say you've been totally violated.
