wheel bearing
« on: September 26, 2013, 23:25:10 PM »
Car had mot today, it ran out in august but I forgot, whoops! Any way, it passed but with some advisories. 2 rear tyres perished, disks and pads on front and front os wheel bearing, what's involved in changing the bearing? I searched on here but nada. I can get one on eBay for less than 20 sniffs.

You'll need a press, probably hydraulic, to get it out of the carrier.

I did mine with a vice and large socket at work :)
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

I'm sure a hydraulic press would work better than the haynes manual. Not enough weight in it.
