    Default New rear hub assembly - where from?

    Been trolling the web to try and find the best place for a new rear hub, apparantly the bearing on its own can't be changed. Typical consumer society ****e.
    If you've bought one before, where from and how much did you pay?
    Thanks peeps.

    Thanks for that, I can't believe that you just can't buy the bearing!
    Having some new rear tyres today so we'll see if that cures it first, if not new hub it is I guess.

    A thrumming/drumming noise from the rear of the car between 50 and 65mph.
    Could be the tyres (it was before) but knowing my luck it will be the wheel bearings.

    Thanks for the info,
    I'm started experiencing a similar noise on the Signum, starts at 30mph and goes away at around 50, sounds as if you are driving over cats eyes

    Update for you, just changed the rear tyres and rear shocks (didn't "feel" right). The O/S shock had a leak. That was the tyre that was on the limiters, whilst the other had another 1mm or so of life left in it.
    Always change tyres in pairs so did them both.
    Driven it home tonight and the noise seems to have gone. Good value at £240 inc VAT for Yokohamas (235/40/18 91w) and a pair of shocks. IMHO.
    For those interested, you can get a bearing kit for £60 plus VAT from motor factors using SKF bearings.
    May save someone some cash in the future.

    Am on 78 000 miles. The good news is that the noise has vanished with the new tyres so it was probably a combination of the leaking shock and worn tyres.
    I'm one happy bunny. Left me change to replace my glow plugs at the terrible price of £21, FOR A SET!!!! That's value IMHO.
