FOr what it is worth, my 87 300TD has the original bearings that I have never repacked and my car has 227K. I know I should repack, but my father-in-law who worked as an airline mechanic for 37 years said that wheel bearings go bad more often when played with than when left alone.

On your question about tightening for the nut, do a search for this and you will get some answers.
