No I just replaced the seals. Is the bearing replacement rather straight forward? Is the a DIY on this site? Anytime a start a service of something new I'm a little intimidated but they've all been fairly simple due to the excellent tutorials available. (Bluebee now is the time to inject your EXCELLENT research and compilations!) The noise does go away after a couple of minutes but I was led to believe it was a symptom of seal failure and would disappear when the seals were replaced.
