F20 M135i front wheel hub change

Post by justTrebs » Thu Apr 12, 2018 9:00 pm

My car has developed an annoying 'whirring' sound which is really noticeable around 40 mph. Had a suspicion it was a front wheel bearing and after taking o/s alloy off and giving the mount a spin i'm convinced it is the culprit.

I replaced the front hubs on my old Corsa (so i know its generally not a difficult task) but I had the comfort of many tutorials and Youtube videos (i'm just a weekend warrior when it comes to this stuff). Does such a tutorial exist for the f20? I've searched the forums and it seen there was a PDF in existence on dropbox but it has since dissapeared. Failing that, does this youtube video follow the same general process? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwMCmGw5erE

Any help appreciated!
