    As per the title chaps. Is there one on each side or two?

    Having just suffered a locked / siezed bearing I'm guessing I am better off changing all 4 / 8 of them to be on the safe side?


    Cheers.

    What is it per corner, 2 bearings and an oil seal?

    I discovered I should really do my rear ones when I changed the disks and pads over

    £240 inc VAT for the whole lot from the main dealers. So thats £60 a corner.


    I know that someone will be along shortly to say that I have been ripped off, and I could have got ****Part ones for £20 a corner, but I know it is going to be a bitch of a job and I don't want to be doing it again this time next year due to inferior parts.

    Discomoneypit it does seem that its a moneypit for the simple reason you do like to go to main stealers. Paddocks do indeed sell timken ones around £7 each or possibly £20 a corner. Timken are Timken nomatter where you get them from and £240 is just silly! Honestly thats mental. Jai

    get some of them bendy locking washers as well when you buy the kit. and the first bearing shell you get out, take a slice out of it with yer grinder, it'll help as a drift to get the new ones in.

    Quite an easy job tae do, here's the back ones...

    http://www.landyzone.co.uk/lz/f41/rear-wheel-bearings-renewed-58851.html

    Ye just need the two bearings, oil seal and maybe a new lock washer per side;)

    The front are the same when ye get the hub off. Just remove the calliper and secure/ tie it out of the way. Ah think ah covered removin' that in me front axle removal how to;):D

    £240? Bloody nora why get parts like that from a dealer? They're are the same thing I get for £8 at my local indy.

    That's bloody ridiculous, no wonder its a money pit if you get all your parts from a dealer.

    BLOODY HELL!!!!!!!!!!


    ****Part bearing kit inc VAT, consisting of bearings, hub gaskets, locking nuts, locking washer & hub seals = £60.

    For the Timkin bearings, inc VAT and all the gubbins = £76.



    Thanks for the heads up chaps. Time to cancel that order from LR.


    For many regular serviceable parts (filters etc), my local LR dealer is within a quid or two of the likes of Paddocks. When I take into account how much closer the main dealers is to me than Paddocks, it actually works out cheaper, (main dealer is about 4 mile away, Paddocks about 20).


    I honestly didn't expect there to be such a huge differance in the price of bearings.

    I would only buy the Timken ones. Even for spares. They are not much more, but should last much longer. always carry a hub nut spanner, drift bar, chisel and 2 of the old races (1 or both with cut notch) with you along with LM grease and the necc. spares.

    Doing it in the field is not much of an issue, as shown below :D
