2014 Partner 1.6L van - rear wheel bearing replacement
I took my van to a garage to get the rear wheel bearings checked out and they said it will cost about £200 per wheel so I decided to do it myself.
When looking to buy the bearing I found that it might be necessary to buy a press to get them in / out of the hub?
Then I thought, I might as well just buy a new hub and bearing, remove the old hub and stick the new one in. That would be easier right?
But I can't find a rear wheel hub for my van anywhere online so I was hoping someone might have some advice on
A. How difficult is it to remove the old bearing from the hub.
B. Why can't I find a new hub to just replace the whole lot.

Hub/bearing will have ABS ring built in and replacing whole thing although easier is expensive you probably cant find any available online as there are probably variations and demand is not high enough for them to be readily available yet but having said that they could be the same as older ones and listings are not accurate.
Best bet would be get the hub off and go to motor factors and compare with older one.
assume nothing check everything twice !!
