    Mine had the recal for the multitronic transmission bearing change at its 3 year end of warranty service..

    Within a month one front wheel bearing had started to whine, replaced by the dealer FOC.

    Then 2 months later the other side started whining so I bought the part and fitted it. Cost £109 just for the bearing, it comes in a holder that is bolted onto the hub carrier.
