147 wheel bearings, sizes?

I need to have a look at the wheel bearings as there is a noise somewhere in the front.

The 156 and 147 bearings are listed as being different , most 147 have the same front bearings.
They all appear the same mounting casing but outer and inner bearing dimensions change .
Some sites list them as being the same for both 147 and 156 which confuses matters?

I have a wreck 156 which was good , are the bearings compatible , same year, same engine/box?
Do they change the hub bearing flange sizes as listed bearing inner can be 35,37 42mm?

*Or is the bearing removable from the hub or outer race integral with the casing?

Any ideas?

I THINK the 147 and 156 are different unless it'just the v6 but sure they are specific.
They have diffrent hubs on the front.

I'm sure you won't be able to get the bearing out of the hub (without destroying it), so you would need to swap the complete hub over from 156 to 147. No idea whether the hubs are the same sorry. Probably easy enough to tell by looking at them.
