Has anyone ever rebuilt the front wheel bearings? I have what appear to be a good pair bearings in hubs but would like to strip, clean and regrease them. Having removed and stripped them down I cannot see why they cannot be rebuilt. Admittedly I have access to pretty specialist kit and specialist people Wink but has anyone else tried this?

 I had a complicated and irreplaceable bearing rebuilt for the Lambda rear axle by
 HB Precision Engineers Ltd, Riverside Works, Honley, Holmfirth, Huddersfield, HD9 6PQ        Telephone 01484 665 116

 I was pleased with their work and it cost about 100 including delivery, back in 2006.

A possible alternative to Phil's question - but proceed with caution
2 brand new Fulvia wheel bearings offered on  ITEM No. 330842666290 at 16-02 each.
Too good to be true? Probaly
The dimension shown,are certainly not for a Fulvia and the photo is for illustration purposes only.

Got mine from Omicron and fitted them with a simple press.

Omicron replaced my N/S Front Wheel Bearing that suddenly started growling, putting the new one back wasn't the problem, but getting the old out was! Omicron won't even quote a time or price for the job as it depends on how long it takes them to get the old one out, in my case it was a long hard job, even with their knowledge and the right tools.
And the bill still makes me wince Cry
