    Here in the States it's listed as TOQ000060, fitting '02 to '05 Freelanders.

    V6 bearings are different - don't fit to Td4/1.8/L-S

    If you are just looking for the bearings (Not the rubber mount & bracket), they are SKF 6006-2RS1. They are a quality bearing and reasonably priced, if you Google or search Ebay for them. Do not buy "Budget" bearings, they are a load of cr$p and wont last five minutes!! They are used on the Td4...dunno about the 1.8 or 2.5 V6.

    Minor thread revival. Saves another new one!
    The G4 has now done 500 miles in my ownership. Loads of standing water on the roads and over the weekend I could hear the tell tale sound of the prop bearings. Bearings were fitted by PO just prior to sale. Dropped the prop off and the bearings sound like sandpaper.

    Tried to find make from PO but unknown.
    Left prop on bench overnight and bearings are stuck and won't rotate without some force!!
    So, ordered a new FAG set and did an ortopsy on these.
    Pressed bearing out of rubber holder and took side rubber off bearing. Full of water and no grease to be seen.
    Have concluded that they are cheap and nasty, but as the bearings came out of carrier easily I have ordered a pair as above. SKF seem o.k. as a brand. Supplier says that if SKF are unavailable they will send FAG!
    Can then keep a spare set of bearings in carriers.

    Weird fault, shortest lived car component ever!!

    You could always lift the seals on new bearings and add a bit more grease,

    SKF or FAG should have proper water tight seals.

    Agreed - I work on oil rigs, and 99% of our bearings we keep in stock are either of those makes.
