Hi,

as title states looking for info on front wheel bearing change.

Is it a DIY or does it require special tools?

Have tried to search but cannot find R172 specific.

Thanks
Ray

ALL SORTED NOW THANKS, GARAGE DONE A QUICK CHANGE FOR ME.

We're still in the early days of the 172 DIYs.


Have a look at the 171 DIYS and you might get an idea of difficulty,
if not the exact job.

Yes looked at those and of a C Class and does look relatively easy, but it’s booked in today at my local indie whose reimbursing me for adjusting bearings on last visit and sorting for me this time, even they haven’t changed any yet, but I jacked car up and spun both wheels and you can definitely hear the whirring on drivers side even though there is no play in the bearing.
Just hope spline is OK
Thanks
Ray
