    Looks like you need to remove the brake calliper (disc aswell?), loosen three torx head bolts on the hub (bearing housing), undo driveshaft nut, withdraw shaft a little so get the hub out and refit.

    But I haven't done it myself, yet, just looked - so I could be a bit out or way out!

    You'd get a shedload of answers and opinions if you were asking about HID lights!

    To add, it seems there's two types with and without IDS - Interactive Drive System.
    On ebay, either £55.55 (without) or £80 with.

    If I knew what I was looking for........

    be careful with £55 jobbies on ebay.

    a lot of them with the ABS sensors don't tend to last long.
    go for garage supplied and fitted as then you have the guarantee.

    but if you're DIY then make sure you note the ebay sellers details just in case you need the part replaced in the future.

    I just had 2 replaced yesterday and one was faulty. It's a headache trying to get a replacement.

    the FAG ones are generally the better of the budget brands. motor factors charge around £90 for the same.

    I replaced my NSF with an ebay one. Kit arrived and got a new hub nut and one new bolt (handy when its 3 that hold it onto the car!)

    Since fitting it, I now have jerky cruise control and a grinding coming from that side. Going to have to live with it for now, had to use the cheaper part due to budget and MOT looming.

    As for fitting, not as easy as it may seem. I had removed the brakes, calipers and disc then realised it was crap access to one of the bolts so had toremove the drop link and the strut to get to the 3rd bolt. Was a bit of a struggle getting it lined up without threading it too. Word to the wise - make sure you have someone on hand to help!!

    Good luck.

    How f***ing tight are the main hub nuts?
    I've sheared the 1/2 drive square from a short extension bar trying to undo it!!!

    LOL, thats the only reason i took mine to a garage, they had to use heat on it. I took the centre cap out of the alloy and put the socket through there with the car fully on the ground to crack it, all I ended up doing was making the wheel spin under full load. Garage only charged me one hours labour @£45 ph so I cant complain.
