04 2.2 Diesel estate. The OS rear wheel bearing has been making a noise for the last few months but only on motorways and wheel getting hot to touch on OS only, it's mainly used local so not been a problem, but a longer motorway trip was planned for this week so time to get it sorted out. I found the correct bearing on Ebay and arranged for the supplier to fit as well, but when we took the wheel and disc off the bearing seemed to be fine, so we decided to look at the other side to compare, that too felt fine, we spun it, same minor noise form both, I put a long pry bar across the threads and let it swing down on both side and there was nothing in it, however both discs were badly corroded but plenty of thickness left on the discs and pads, but for the price I was quoted to replace £85 all in I thought it worth doing, the brake back plates have seen better days but attacked with a wire brush and an old screwdriver they succumbed to my not inconsiderable charms the dust cover is missing in one tiny place so needs attention later at some point, these should be made of plastic not metal Mr Honda, so put everything back and took it for a spin, voila! quietness from the nether regions and less beer vouchers lost. So don't always assume the worst, the cost was going to be £250 all in, so a huge savin. We were going to replace the big Front OS lower wishbone bush but one bolt proved to be a swine to get out, mainly because Mr Honda didn't design the access very well at all, you can't get in with a windy gun, and the steering arms and anti roll bar stopped almost all ratchet movement, warming up the captive nut was looking iffy too due to pipes and gaiters all around it. Anyhoo the reason for this post was to ask if anyone had had any success with changing the bearing itself rather than the housing as they are hellish expensive, Mine being the tourer was over £150, it seems to me if the bearing were put in they can be taken out with some effort and maybe made an exchange item by someone. Kev.
