    I think it's all built into the hub that you replace so no need.

    Hardest bit can be the driveshaft nut, take of the wheel, remove the dust cap on the hub, put on the space saver (so you can get a socket on the nut) and drop the car down. It makes things alot easier

    I changed my n/s/f last week on my 1.8 LS 52 plate mate. Everything you need is in the box, hub, abs ring, new Torx bolts and cap. Took about an hour, not hard.
    See my thread "Wheel bearing ????"

    Go on, get dirty ! lol !

    I got mine from the local "Euro Car Parts", not sure if they're nationwide or not, sorry. It was £72+vat = £84, after market obviously, and with a mate's garage name for a bit of discount. Another local parts shop was £88+ vat, and the local stealer was £100+vat after SuperTrade discount, (£140+vat without discount), for OEM.

    Good luck, Jayson
