    Default Astra H VXR Wheel bearings!?

    Cars making a hideous noise, front wheel bearings need replacing.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    I've noticed they vary in price massively, seeing between £100- £300 for the pair. Isit worth spending the extra? Any links would be great thankyku.

    Just remember the VXR and 1.9CDTi use different bearings compared to the rest of the range. These as you'd expect are more expensive than those say for a 1.6.
    I'd be looking at SKF bearings to be honest. Probably some of the best you can get

    Would use genuine part especially on a safety item like wheel bearings

    You'll need a good torque wrench to do one, from memory they are 200nm+ for the first torque for the hub nut

    Avoid cheap ones as said
