Hi Sean,I have a noisy rear wheel bearing is it difficult to replace? will I need special tools ? I did the fronts a little while ago which were quite easy. On that note if anybody needs to borrow the tool to replace yours you are welcome (Colchester based)
Thanks in advance for any help
Hi Rod Davis,There is no need for a puller on this job. The bearing unit just slides over the stub axle. I suppose some may get gunged up but a bit of tapping could be used if that is the case. The bearing is part of the unit and does not have to be seated.
isn't it 30 degrees? 90 is quite a bit of extra force?Inspired by the OP, I've just done mine: easiest job on the car so far! Literally under 15mins including putting car into workshop and jacking it up.
No special tools: No27 torx (drum screw) 30mm twelve sided socket, breaker bar and a torque wrench if you're keen (70NM plus 90 degrees, new nut).
As others have said, it just pulls off.
I think the only thing of note was that my kit didn't come with a new hub nut cap, so be careful to remove the existing one in one usable piece.
