    Default 03 Scenic Expression II rear wheel bearings

    Am replacing rear rotors and bearings and have these on eBay (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Renault-S...7-Brake-Pads-/380728061196?.pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item58a5292d0c) but they do not have bearings. Can follow link or item number.

    I can buy these bearings but believe they would have to be hydraulically pressed into place.
    Has anyone had experience with this or had it done?

    It is best just to buy the whole lot together. Sometimes the wheel bearings can go a short time after just replacing the discs, whether through age or not liking the person who parted them from the original discs.

    Thanks Simon, I am replacing new rotor, bearings and disc pads. But am waiting for a price on rotor/bearing complete, so may go that way. Genuine Renault cost is $407.07 +postage ex Brisbane. Buying non-genuine may be a little over half that amount.
    This started as thinking problem was final drive in auto but noise does come from rear and two qualified mechanics concur it is wheel bearings despite the fact with wheels off ground and spinning by hand there is no noise or movement. But not under load of course.
    Have a dealer looking at supply of rotor/bearing assembly complete so will see how that goes.
    Had the Scenic since new and no major problems, even timing belt change was quite simple. At 150k now and front rotors/pads will also replace after doing the rear. And rear rotors and pads are still within limits of service life.
    So viva la Renault! Hope my French is right.
