    When I drive my copen at about $80kmph it get a rubbing sound in the front tire or wheel... could that be the wheel bearing faulty?
    what is the part number for the wheel bearing and where can I buy them?

    See page 8 & 9 for the front wheel information.

    When changing the wheel bearing, It has been none to result in accidental damage of the ABS sensor. Make your mechanic aware of this.
    I think I've seen wheel bearings on ebay.

    Mark, i had a same feeling in the wheel, ended up being a really badly worn brakes in the front. it would go off if i tapped the brakes a few times, but come back really soon afterwards, while driving the car. could that be it?

    Hi Dwayner,

    Yes it is possible, I will check on it this weekend. I had learnt from youtube on how to check if the wheel bearing is faulty. If it is not faulty then it could be the problem that you had discribe.
    I will let you guys know next week. Have a good weekend.
