Question about 2007 BMW 328xi Sports Wagon
LEFT FRONT wheel bearing noise - cost to repair or is it on warranty
THE Car is a 2007 BMW 328xi touring
If you have more than a 3 year warranty it is covered under warranty
if you are going to do the work yourself you need to remove the front road wheel
find the bolts that hold the caliper on and remove them
remove the caliper leaving the flexible brake line connected or you will have to bleed the brakes when you reconnect it
once the caliper is removed you have to remove the bearing cap in the centre of the rotor
remove the retaining split pin from the stub axle and remove the large nut that holds the wheel bearing
remove the bearings and the rotor, clean all grease off the rotor where the bearings are
use a drift and remove the inner bearing shells from the rotor by hitting them from behind with a hammer and the drift
place the new shells in position and gently tap them into position using a brass drift or a press
regrease the rotor hub with new grease, pack the bearing with grease and replace everthing in reverse order of removal
if you buy the new bearings from a bearing supplier you will save quite a few dollars as automotive spare parts dealers are usually a lot more expensive with their prices
Dont forget to put a new seal in the back of the rotor hub before you place the rotor on the stub axle
the seal can be bought from the bearing supplier as well
