failed the MOT but not major....

Ah, the story now continues.

MAF sorted, Mot has shown up both front wheel bearings need replacing and the front brake flexi pipes.

Anyone got some tips, I am going to replace the front pads at the same time and may also have a look at the bushes? Anything else worth a look at whilst I am at it? May do the disks as well and go nuts.

I take it the easiest way is to have the new bearings pressed in by a local garage, I have recently done the ones on my wifes MGF of which were a complete swine.Managed to press them in with a large vice and a small diameter old bearing. No damage fortunately occured, but was twitchy bottom time.

I understand the rear calipers need a tool to rewind them back in before fitting new pads?

Many Thanks.
