    Default 205GTI Rear Wheel Bearing

    Gday, I just had a roadworthy test done and got told I need to replace a rear wheel bearing in order for my 205 GTI to pass. My Haynes manual says only a specialised peugeot mechanic can do this, I am living in Sweden and due to them being communists this means it will cost me a fortune. Does anyone know if it is possible to do it yourself with a hammer and a shifty? and i can maybe get my hands on a flatheaded screwdriver too if need be.

    Thanks

    Default check it out

    Check the Biltema catalogue first for bearings, then on the net for Mekonomen and there is anotherie to look at, the name of which alludes me. I don't knoew about the 205s but it should be possible to do yourself.
    Where in this country are you?
    Are you in Peugeot club in Sweden?

    Cheers mate, yeah its possible to buy the bearings at biltema - still not sure about the Haynes book and the specialised peugeot tool requirement though.

    I live in the south east in a town called Nybro. i don't know anything about the swedish peugeot club... if it involves driving some more on icy roads then i am keen.

    Default Peugeotklubb

    G'day,
    You are on the other side of the country to me.I am in Falkenberg area.
    The Swedish club you will find at this address http://www.peugeotsverige.com/peugeotklubben/ and there is a link (länkar) to the Peugeot Sports Club. I never really look at this site. There are also links to photos and the (normal ) club has adverts and such things. In comparison to the victorian club anyway, the peugeot club here is somewhat tame, but then it takes in the whole country and really there are not a whole lot of older Peugeoys left in comparison with Oz. There are meetings and a club supply of parts although this is more for the older Pugs. There are tools and there is help (advice) to be had somewhere in Sweden.
    The sites are in Swedish of course, so you can learn all the terms for cars in Swedish with a Peugeot.
    I always wash my cars thoroughly and show that they are looked after when I go in´to Bilprovningen, this I am sure helps a lot. Those Haynes books are sometimes very difficult to follow ( at least the wiring diagrams), so often it is better just to sit down and work out how to do the job.
    Good luck with the fixing.
