[B]You're averaging 13,000 miles between front pad changes. This is rather low life for pads, but it may be normal if you drive in a hilly urban environment.
I've only had the car since 111m, but the pad wear is not encouraging. Hopefully I can do better with this set of pads.
>How do you plan on checking the wheel bearings? If you're only checking for axial play, be very careful not to let any grit into the grease cavity. Anything more will require you to completely clean the old grease, regrease with proper amount of new grease, replace the grease seals, and properly set the axial clearance. Sometimes it's better to just leave it alone.
Don't laugh, but all I was going to do was pop off the cap and make sure there was fresh grease there!
