Re: Rear Wheel Bearing
Listening to the replies i got i decided it was not a DIY thing!
So i got a refund on the bits i bought & decided to go to BILLCAR as Dave seamed to know what he was talking about. I left home this morning at 4am & was on there ramps at 8am sharp for some open heart sugary.
By 8.35am it was off the ramps & we were on a test drive, drowning noise gone. Just over 30mins to get the old half shaft out, new shaft with seals & bearing pre-done back in. New breather in the axle as it had seized (which if pressure builds up, seals blow, oil in your brakes) & re-fill with axle oil.
And the price including £197.50+VAT
I take my hat off to BILLCAR as its a VERY slick operation. They know the probs with the D22/D40 inside out & built a business to deal with them, one hell of a lot cheaper than the stealer's. A lot of stealer's use BILLCAR to replace the bearings & seals on half shafts they say.
Its common for the nearside rear bearing to go as the axle design fevers the right side with oil!
So if you have a prob Dave's your man. TOP BLOKE
