So last week Gina started to feel a bit 'odd' on the back end I can't describe it really she just didn't feel right!
Fearing the worst I read through a few rear end posts here and decided that it could possibly be rear bearings! Only because some described their syptoms like passive rear wheel steering which is possible what I was experiencing.
I orders new hub assemblies and new tools! Any excuse for tools! And read write ups and posts on here!
I have just replaced both sides and the car feels better and most of my growl I was getting has gone!
I say most as I know I have some work to do on the front to cure that.
The job actually is pretty straight forward and has taken me about 3 hours all in!
For those without access to a windy gun than I would say the best method for hub nut removal is the spare wheel ou route and car on the ground.
It's given me a chance to have a poke around at the back as well and although not urgent I can see a couple of jobs to do!
But all in all job well done thanks to the detailed right ups and exchange of info on here! Thanks a lot.

Why....I did one yesterday.....the stub axle doesn't rotate so no need for the brake or spare wheel to be on to stop it turning.
