3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
Just wondering if anyone has changed one of theirs, I have changed a front wheel bearing on my 84 318i but those are a hub and not just the bearing. Just need to know if I will need any additional tools besides a bearing puller and the 37 or 36mm socket(dont remember the exact size it was) If not Great. If I will need anything else please let me know.
No extra tool a hammer and chisel may be. You many what to buy the dust shield behind the bearing because if the inner race sticks on the shaft you may bent the shield knocking it off, and when itís bent they rub on the back off the bearing
i tried to take this i landed up just taking it to my mechanic cuz i didn't have the tools to do it. from behind drive the wheel hub out of the wheel bearing you would have to use a puller to remove the bearing inner race from the hub.

Yes, you will need a puller to remove that bearing. Any drive wheel bearing needs to be pulled out. Any non-drive bearing usually can come right out without any pulling device. Just for future reference =0
Oh and if you have the right pullers, the job wont take more than 45 minutes per wheel.
