    You need a press weelo, best letting a pro do it.

    If its a fwd you can indeed get a bearing/hub pre made combo.
    Quattro's are a bit more tricky.

    Assuming yours is a FWD model:
    Its straight forward. Remove wheel, brake calliper and carrier and disc.
    Undo the centre hub nut (30mm 12 point) replace in reverse order.

    Might be cheaper to get just the bearing matey and getting a friend that's either handy with the tools or is aa mechanic anyway and getting them to do it rather than forking out for a whole hub/bearing ore-pressed combo?

    Hope you get it sorted easy enough either way :)

    hi mate bit of a silly question but did you no it was a wheel bearing gone by play in the wheel or just a whine? reason for asking is just i have a bad whining which sounds like a wheel bearing but none of the wheels seem to have any play.

    Your actual wheel won't have any play on one edge in and out as such if that makes sense, if it is a bearing you'll normally hear it start a deep grinding sound at about 30mph upwards as you gradually accelerate.

    Hope this helps mate!
