04 Clio 1.4 noise from rear, wheel bearings?

Hi All

Running an 04 1.4 16V Clio, 69K miles.

Ive recently noticed a whining noise coming from what appears to be the nearside rear, most noticable above about 40 mph but tails off above about 65. Deffo speed related.

My guess is a grumbly wheel bearing but how to find out which one?

Just how difficult are the bearings to replace, any special tools required? I'd imagine the'yre tapers?

Many Thanks.....
