Rear Wheel Bearing

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have a 2001 996 Carrera with a very noisy rear wheel bearing. I have been searching on here and found a couple of threads on replacing the bearing. Before going ahead, I just want to confirm I need to get hold of the Sir Tools B90 kit and there is no other way of doing the job?

Many Thanks!

Many years ago when my car was still under the original warranty I had some rear end noise and the dealer diagnosed it as bad rear wheel bearings. The work was done under warranty. They said the removed the rear control arms and carrier to press the bearings out on a press. The warranty charge was about $2,000!

Glad to see there are alternatives.

Just for those who don't feel ambitious enough to do it yourself, my local shop quoted me $130 for the bearing and $200 to install plus tax... Not too crazy for a PCar, but my rear left has a lot of play so needs to be changed..
