Front wheel Bearings on 86 e24

Post by Ronnie Wilson » Fri Jul 10, 2020 8:04 pm

Hi

I want to fit a new set of front Wheel Bearings on my 86 e24. Can you just change the Bearings and reuse the old Hubs or are the Hub and Bearings only available as one unit.

Thanks

Hi Ronnie,

You will destroy the bearing when you remove it so the new one comes complete with hub and bearing.

Do you have a Haynes for the E28? Excellent write-up in there on the bearing replacement.

All the best.
