01 325i R rear wheel bearing

I have purchased a replacement bearing and would consider replacing myself, Does anyone have a "how to" on this? Do I have to buy the tool or can I get by with something else. Keep in mind my model only has the single bearing , its a2001 325i Sedan

Thanks in advance and my email addy is stephenpowelson@yahoo

Steveo, i have done the rear wheel bearing on my 92' 325i. If you want to do it yourself you can rent the tools from autozone or schucks auto supply. It took me about 6 hours to do mine. it's a real bitch to pull the race out and then press the new one in. good luck though.

Yeah dude you need to get it pressed out... goodluck! Like seriously. Bring it to Canadian Tire and see if those guys are willing to help you press it out.

TRuckee is an unknown quantity at this point
Steve, I replaced a rear wheel bearing on my '00 323i and would agree that it takes about 6 hrs.. I used the Bentley manual and it was sufficient to enable me to do the swap. As you might all ready know, this cars ain't like working on the family Ford. Just jacking the car up and getting it on jack stands to be able to get under it is complicated. In addition, I had to buy the "Sir Tools" bearing replacement kit, the axle nut tool and ( as I remember it) fabricate a puller for the drive flange which I ruined because I waited too long. Get back to me if you want more coaching. Tom
