Turbo wheel bearing

by Curnow » Thu Oct 10, 2013 12:45 am

My 96 4x4 turbo calibra is registered in Australia.
My front left wheel bearing is wrecked and needs replacing.
The problem I am having is; no one has been able to order me the correct wheel bearing.
What I'm wondering is does my car have a different wheel bearing to all or most other calibras?
And does anyone know where in Australia or even anywhere else in the world that would stock one?

Try autovaux here in the uk they are very good if you give them the chassis number thay should sort it as long as they are still the stranded struts

There are two wheel bearings for the turbo model if i remember n chassis onwards is the later bearing its only about 1mm narrower and 1mm bigger in diameter but its enough to burst a hub as my mate discovered trying to press one into his early struts :(

What about the rear bearing is there more than 1 size or are they all the same as I'm about to change mine
