Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.


Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

        Rear wheel bearings are very easy to replace. Jack up car, chock front wheel, take handbrake off, Remove wheel, remove dust cap, remove split pin, undo castle nut, (left handed thread), pull off drum. Bearings knock out very easily. There's an inner and outer bearing and a spacer. Knock in new bearings and old spacer and reverse what you did to take the drum off.

            If that's happened, just buy a long socket that's the correct size. Much cheaper
