Socket size for rear axle nut


A2OC Donor
Need to replace a rear wheel bearing - does anybody know the size of the 12-point socket for undoing the hub nut? Found one post that says 30mm but wondered if anybody could confirm please.

I've replaced rear wheel bearings myself but can't remember the nut size. Also searched for related service info but that's the only link I could find.

yes can confirm this as I did the same job on Wednesday evening! rule of thumb - rear hub = 30mm 12 point star. Front is 35mm 12 point star - yes 35! on the later model - a bit of a ******......but i have one if anyone gets stuck
