    you'll need a socket big enough to undo the main bearing nut on the driveshaft and torx bits to undo the bottom balljoint pinch bolt. you'll also need torx sockets to undo the 3 bolts that hold the bearing assy to the hub frame..

    undo the bearing nut before raising the car if you can as it's tight..

    raise and support the car and remove the roadwheel...remove the brake caliper and support it so it doesn't hang on the hose.. remove the caliper carrier and disc..undo the lower balljoint crossbolt and seperate the balljoint from the hub, slide the driveshaft out of the housing.. disconnect the ABS lead coming from the hub..Now, undo the 3 bolts that hold the hub to the upright. clean the mating faces and refit the new bearing to the hub.. then rebuild..

    Cheers GSi (Once again!!) Do you know what size torx I need? I don't have any so would prefer not to buy a whole set just to use two!!
    Also do you know any of the torque settings when putting back together, especially the hub nut? Or is it just a case of doing it FT??!
