    Front wheel bearing fitting

    Hi, I need a new front wheel bearing and im looking for a diy guide.

    So if anyone has a link or can write up a step by step it would be much appreciated.

    Is this an easy diy job or should I leave it to the professionals?

    Thanks

    You will be replacing the whole hub as you wont get just the bearing itself. But it is a fairly easy job if your handy with the spanners

    I have been reading up on how to do this too, and surprisingly searching youtube had me watching so many of the same videos, its virtually embedded into my brain.

    My understanding is that;

    Wheel off
    Undo the two caliper bolts from the back of the hub
    slip the caliper off and sit it somewhere safe
    undo the torque screw on the disc and take the disc off
    Now i think at some point the middle cap comes off and you undo the nut, dont know if thats before or after the disc but it will be apparent.
    There's three bolts that hold on the hub and bearing unit
    once undone it slips off the driveshaft, and as the manual says, refit is the opposite of removal lol

    If you are going to buy the bearings yourself, be aware that one side may have a speed sensor attached to it. Check with a Vaux dealer to see what ones you need. AutoVaux sell the bearings for about £55 exc VAT

    Mine is getting done this week sometime and i'll be doing it by myself got to start somewhere :P
