    The hub is a factory sealed unit which incorporates the ABS reluctor ring and sensor. Easy to just bolt a new unit on and I only paid £55 for a FAG OE one on ebay.

    If you think you need a new rear wheel bearings, is it because of a rumbling noise? If so, that's usually caused by tyre wear rather than a faulty bearing.

    Unless there is play it wouldn't fail the mot.

    The Vec C/signum bearings don't tend to have play although they can whine like hell. What you have to do is jack the car up and listen closely as you turn the wheel, the rumbling bearing will feel different to a good one
