Spinning wheel bolt - hub flange but what else
I have an **** of a problem.
Left front wheel, one of my wheel bolts does not tighten properly. it does screw in but then just spins. I have hoped it just needs re-tapping but my mechanic assures me it needs new parts as once the thread's gone I'm screwed (pardon the pun).
I want to source my parts myself then pass on to the mechanic. Looking on EBSpares, it looks like I need the hub flange replacement, IE the bit that the wheel bolts screw into. However my limited knowledge says I probably also need the wheel bearing, as this will get damaged we pull the flange off? Am I right? Is there anything else you guys think I will need for this job? Am I also right that wheel bearings (and therefore flange replacement) are not DIY as it needs the press that garages have?
Any help appreciated
