  2. I had mine done last month. A local garage was recommended by a member on here and he saved me a fortune.
    I paid £45 for bearings and grease bolts (ebay) then the garage charged just £226 for fitting.
  3. someone know the part number of the swivel bearing?
  4. The top bearing is the needle bearinged point. The bottom/lower ones are ball bearing and very rarely fail (told by my mechanic).
  5. Thats the kiddys !! Yeah they are lower ones actually, my bad.me and the mechanic where looking at it the wrong way up haha.

    Yeah needle bearing are defo lower and ball bearings top. Sorry for confusion.
