    Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement??

    Well guys, I have a rear wheel bearing that is making alot of noise. Do you guys know the best way to replace these and the cheapest place to get them? Also, can I just buy the bearings or do I have to buy the whole bearing assembly?

    Is there any special tools to replace the wheel bearing or special operations?

    it comes as an assembly
    the cheapest would be to DIY it yourself.

    check bimmerzone.com, and I think pelicanparts.com sells VW stuff too. These sites usually sell OEM stuff for good prices.
