Hi all, is it hard to overhaul the rear discs on a 325, ive noticed that the rear left disc is getting hotter quicker than the right, so maybe it needs a overhaul, is it hard to do? or should i take it to a mechanic. Also i think possibly i have a bearing out on the same wheel, but im not sure if the noise im hearing is the breaks on this wheel, any help would be appreciated :P

could be either, but my guess is its a siezed caliper, or one waiting to happen.


just taking a stab at the answer to be honest, but pull things apart and check them out.

very well could be, checking the wheel bearing is quite easy if the car is in the air. spin the wheel check for the noise, if its present, and you have ruled out the possibility of any other mechanical issue like brakes, than a wheel bearing is probably shot.
