When you check the bearing. Make sure you clean all the grease out of it and look closely at the surfaces of the bearings. If there are any imperfections - change it. Also check your bearing race for cracks or wear. One final thought. Before you remove the bearing - jack up the front of the car so the tire is off the ground and grabbing the tire at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock push it back and forth with effort looking for sideways play. I've had rear wheel bearings on non-mercedes cars that had a low howl and they were so worn the wheel had play in it.
