Default Re: 04 Saturn Vue MT speed dependent hum- wheel bearing done

I would have thought so too but that is the rear driver and this noise is 100 percent coming from the front left wheel. That wheel bearing has been replaced twice already. The 1st one failed after 500 or so miles and I replaced it under warranty. The one I installed on Saturday felt great but as soon as I took my test drive the noise is still there. Every part of me says it is another wheel bearing but the odds of getting another bad one are pretty low.

What am I missing? What else could make that noise? Why would it be faulty immediately after install? I am banging my head against the wall here. I appreciate any suggestions.
