    Can someone please give an opinion?
    Should replacement bearings in the above DEFINITELY be genuine or has previous use shown aftermarket, eg SKF to be acceptable?

    You will find that the so called 'genuine' bearings are simply an SKF/FAG/etc etc etc bearing, in a peugeot wrapper....with a special partnumber on the side so it looks pretty.........

    if you buy genuine from the dealer, youll be paying extra for a brand name.

    best bet is to just go to your ussual peugeot parts salesman, be it whoever, and order the bearings, cheaper then paying full price for a peugeot wrapper containing a bearing made by SKF/FAG/etc etc.

    even the bearings in the new cars, are supplied to peugeot, and all other car manufacturers, from a seperate bearing company, with a special partnumber printed on the inner race, so it conforms with peugeots' etc. spare parts cataloge, and so they can charge people lots of money for 'genuine' bearings.
