-Jack up the rear of your car.
-Remove the ABS sensor
-Remove the rear brake disc and pads (remove all brake parts)
-Remove the drive axis
-Remove the surety ring
-Throw out the wheel bearing with special tools
-For install the new bearing read this list from below to above!

*Be sure the hub nut is tighten with the right torque (I thought 290 Nm or 212 lbs-ft)

Thanks for the help mate, what are the speacial tools required to release the bearing? BMW have quoted me 200 for the labour if they do the job, this seems way to high.

I don't know what the labour costs are for that kind of work, but it is a hard job when you never did that. Keep us informed and good luck!
