    Went to the Jaguar Dealer and got the missing lug stud and installed it using a couple nuts. Had to order 2 lug nuts as they didn't have them in stock. After reinstalling the rotor and brake caliper, I put the wheel back on with the 3 lug nuts that I had. Noticed a lot of play in the wheel, yup that's my noise that I was hearing. The right rear being the worse, but the left rear had a little play as well. Ordered inner and outer rear wheel bearings for both rear wheels from my local auto parts store.

    Oh, what the heck. I removed the whole hub carrier and was wondering how to get to the bearings and just looked at the manual and this is what it says.

    12 Hub and bearing (rear) -renewal 4
    If you want to renew the rear hub and
    bearing assembly (or the ABS trigger wheel),
    remove the hub carrier (see Section 11), then
    take the carrier to a Jaguar dealer service
    department or to an automotive machine
    workshop. These parts require a hydraulic
    press and special fixtures to dismantle and
    reassemble.

    Was able to find a write up and very tiny thumbnail pics. I was able to use a socket and hammer to punch down on the axle. Bearings, etc now in view and out. Ran out of light so I will continue the R&R after work today.

    Got both wheel bearings installed on both sides, 2nd side went a lot fast as the 1st side was the learning curve. Test drove and same noise. Just ordered the parts to do the "output shaft bearings."

    Here is a complete list if parts to do the output shaft seals on both sides.

    2 O-Rings: part number JLM621

    2 Collars: part number JLM615

    2 output shaft bearings: SKF 6207-J

    2 output shaft seals: SKF 18662

    Cheapest kit I could find was $100 per side. I decided to piece it all together from ebay and was able to buy "both" sides for $100 total shipped.
