Mk3 Mondeo Estate Rear Bearing Replacement Urgent

8 posts in this topic

How long before it lets go it sounds a dry as the proverbial i have had the caliper off and the noise persists i was hoping pads but not to be !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Do i look for a complete hub s/h or new or is the bearing a simple replacement with the correct tools?

the rear hub on the mondeo is a sealed unit, so the bearing cannot be replaced on its own.

A good quality replacement will cost you around £100 - £120 new.

only held on with 4 bolts, so certainly an easy diy job. you will need good quality 1/2 drive torx sockets though

Wouldn't say I was "had" considering as someone has posted a good replacement will cost around £100-120 and I don't posses the tools to perform the repair myself. And still much cheaper than Dealership

Well, you were had, a bit.

You only need basic tools to do the job - and even if you didn't have them, it would still have been cheaper to buy the new bearing and all the tools to do it as well. Probably the biggest expense would have been a torque wrench as the four bolts need torquing up to (iirc) 90nm.

Hi, my rear bearing went recently on my 52 plate mondeo saloon, dont know if the bearing differs on estates, but I found a site on ebay that only cost about £29 for a new bearing and about £4 postage.
