    Got my bearing from Ebay for £65, 1 hours labor cost me £40 to fit. HTH Its not a big job if you have the tools, any good garage should have it done in an hour.

    The hardest part is getting the hub nut undone. That's the only reason I took mine to the garage, mine was proper stuck. No separate parts in these one's ether, all one unit, hub and bearing.

    Same as Rushy - if I hadn't been put off by the difficulty of getting the big nut off, I'd have done my own as well. You need a very, very big and strong breaker bar IIRC.
