    Angry Wheel bearing robbery!!!!

    Hi there people,
    Can't believe it!, Had a new near side front wheel bearing fitted today but it's not just the bearing you need to replace its the A.B.S aswell because it comes as a whole part!!.
    So be prepared when you need a bearing cos its gonna sting your pocket Cheers Leeroy!!!!

    Vehicle : Vectra

    They have been like that for a while now, I had to replace a rear bearing on my Vectra B and it was a complete unit with the hub and everything with the ABS connector coming out of the back, probably makes it easier to assemble in the factory saving a precious minute!
