Front wheel bearings

Are the front wheel bearings adjustable? The front left wheel has a lot of movement. the MINI has only done 28k kilometers

I just replaced a front wheel bearing. I don't remember any adjustments. Is it making noise? Possibly a bushing (lower control arm?) I had mine replaced at about 40k miles under warranty.

There is no noise, and when I got under the car and moved the wheel, all the movement seemed to be in the hub.
