rear wheel bearing fitting?

I have got a new rear wheel bearing in the hub for my 96 146ti 2.0 and was wondering if anyone has carried out this repair before?.I have managed to get the wheel off by hammering on an old socket because the locking stud key is stripped and now I notice that the calipers are held on with alan keys that look impossible to turn!. Also any ideas as to removing the front wheels as the banging on sockets doesnt seem to be working and I need 2 front tyres for the mot?. Any local willing helpers?

Re: rear wheel bearing fitting?

Ouch - it seemed somebody did not use a torque wrench when fitting the wheels last time. I find that getting wheels off - its better to do the "long lever" rather than "big hammer" - get the longest extension you can find. (And turn anti-clockwise

Now for the hub - Take the complete caliper off - there are normal bolts at the back of the caliper and move aside. Remove the two fastening studs and remove the spacer (if fitted) and the disk. There is a cap over the hub nut - remove and then undo the nut (32mm). The hub can then be hammered off.

Refitting is the reverse - remember to push the brake pads back (open the space for the disk between the pads.

Torque settings: The 32mm hub nut torque 42Nm - the disk studs 15Nm - caliper nuts 25Nm - wheel nuts 85Nm

Its not to difficult - good luck
