Well, here im back to tell about my rear wheel bearing installation that i had asked on this forum if it was indeed the rear bering. Well it was, and it was also true that to replace them it was a real pain!!!!

First off, dont ever try doing this job without renting the rear wheel bearing BMW tools from they offer great prices and great tools.

Let me say that even with the use of the tools, i still had to do a lot of pounding to get the hub out of the bearing using the slide hammer, and that did hurt my harms and back.

I will also say, do not delay this job, the more you let it stay bad, the worse to take it out. on the passenger side, my bearings, on the inside, had deep harsh grooves in them, i dont know how it got in there, but the damage was such that taking them out was hard.

Anyway, ill post pictures later,

so if you plan on doing this job, do yourself a favor and get the tools.

ask if any questionss,

see ya.

Rear wheel bearings.

Thanks for your post. I now have a better understanding of the complexities of this task. Should I repair the other rear bearing when I do the defective one?
