    Hello there,
    I was just wondering if a 60 plate Audi A3 Rear Hub will fit my 57 plate A3 and also how easy is it to change the rear hubs? My wheel bearings have gone both sides and ive been told its easier to change the hub rather than the bearing itself.

    Has anyone got a guide on how to change them and also is there any special tools you need?

    Cheers
    Grant

    The wheel bearings are built in to the hub mate and i am told they can't be separated.
