No not yet, I removed the one as doc stated, I found that it was in good condition

Okay, there is a lubrication that comes with a new bearing set. It goes in to the white holder. Now, sometimes event hough the bearings look good if the white "socket" is even slightly over to worn that will cause the noise also. In short it is still a good idea to replace the bearing kit even if all looks good. Now if you decide to lubricate make sure you use a lubricant that won't harm teflon as that is what the white holder is made of. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.
