You can adjust front wheel bearings by spinning wheel, turning nut tight, then backing off a bit and going back to just past tight. (Kind of hard to explain in type lol.) The more important thing is that they failed you for this? If your bearings need adjustment that they found during an inspection, I would say your bearings are gone. The only way you would say that the bearings needed adjustment through an inspection is that they were howling, loose, or both. Which means if you did not literally just put them one (in the case of being loose) than they are shot.
Something does not sound right to me here.
Edit: Robert P. good call, I had a brain fart and was thinking old school bearings lol. Our cars do NOT have adjustable bearings at all, so someone at the shop is pulling your leg imo.
