    yeh you need to change the hub as it is one unit, you can get them on ebay cheap enough.

    As above, the bearing is the whole hub unit and is not too difficult to change.

    Try ebay as stated you should be able to pick up one easy enough. Are you sure it is a wheel bearing what is your symptoms?? If you are experiencing droning you should get your tyres checked out or swap front to rear to see if it cures your problem. There is a recent thread on here somewhere and the vast amount of droning noise from the rear turned out to be the tyres.

    in case of tyres, put your spare on one corner, take it out, if it still drones, put that wheel back on and try the spare in another corner etc. you may find that with one of the wheels off the droning stops. My dad has a rover 600 that drones. it turns out one of the new (very budget) tyres is malformed. you may even have a tyre on backwards - check the rotation markings.

    this is a free test that you can do and may find that you can fix the problem for much less money than a new set of hubs!
