Question Bad real wheel bearing?

Lately my ZX3 has been making a loud noise like a hum that increases with speed and increases when I make a left turn and decreases when I make a right. This leads me to believe the right rear wheel bearing is bad as this is where the sound is eminating from.

What do you guys think, has anyone else experienced this?

The recall is for 00-01 foci. Don't think 02's were included.

I have an 01 and my right rear bearing went out on me while i was on a road trip. I was stranded and had to pay some small shop to fix it. Had to fight with ford to get reimbursed. THey said that the recall is only for cars made in a certain area or something and now they refuse to fix the other one. I hate ford dealers.
