    Hi all,

    I have recently found the wheel bearing on front passenger side is failing and I will need to get it replaced! I wondered could anybody give me any advice on how to remove and refit and what tools needed, sockets and bits etc.? Also were would be the best place to purchase a new bearing.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    The bearing comes complete with a flange that fits onto the hub carrier and a new allen screw that goes in the end of the driveshaft. £109 from Audi main dealer.

    Its just nuts and bolts to fit, but you might need a slide hammer to get it apart.

    You might as well do both sides, mine went within 2 months of each other!

    Mine went after about 120k and having just changed my front discs and pads myself, and having had issues with seized disc location screws etc and both sides taking me a total of 8 hrs (to save £100)... I took mine in to my local VAG specialist. Good job too, He had the tools and Oxy-Acetalene which he needed as it was seized solid and took 2.5 hours aledgedly. Just under £200 inc parts per one side!
