I've never been clear on this. Thanks to all wiser hands who fill me in on the facts.

What's the worst-case scenario?

Are you concerned because yours is whining? I doubt it would disable the car.

To my knowledge, it's only the annoying whine. I've never read of the bearing seizing up and disabling the car.

Actually, no. I asked because a friend was contemplating an RL but had heard about the whine issue, and I didn't know what was the accurate advice to give him.

Thanks, Vertx.
