Let's Talk Wheel Bearings!

Let's Talk Wheel Bearings!

With Discovery 3's and RRS's now getting on for 14/15 years old, we are forever being asked for a cheapie, but rather than go down the cheap route, we have negotiated a volume price on this quality Optimal version, and a unique enhancement to the warranty period which conveys our confidence in the product.

LR014147 RFM500010 LR076692 Optimal 881717 Front wheel hub Bearing Discovery 3 & 4, Range Rover Sport (02/05-/)

4 Year warranty on this kit applies from 12th November 2019

Kit contains:
Optimal Hub Bearing Unit
4 x Retaining Bolts FC112146
1 x Hub Nut - Old type for original drive shafts RFD500020 (CDU1534L)

Hub nut torque has been reduced to 230Nm / 169 lb-ft, correct torque is important.

The retaining bolts are known to sheer if over-tightened so it is important to ensure the threads are clear before refitting and tighten to 115Nm

Awesome, I could hear a brg had gone and sure enough found FOS is on it's way out. I know I can trust your products from other stuff I've had from you. I'll be placing my order to do both sides shortly Smile

Are you still doing Timken bearings? They seem to be the most recommend on here. Not sure I want to be doing it twice.

Whilst the 4 year warranty on the above Optimal is great, the labour to do them again isn't covered.

What is the general feeling on the forum.

Timken or these new bearings from AF?

I'd like to know too, mine are being replaced next week and they're fitting Timken at a cost about twice as much if these

My feeling is Timken. But still unsure and surprised at the lack of response from AF.

I wouldn't try anything other than Timken. I changed my NS front 50,000 miles ago (and 4 1/2 years) for a genuine Timken, still as good as the day it was fitted.
Only my opinion though, others might have had a good experience with cheaper parts. Thumbs Up

AF used to sell Optimal bearings

Then stopped

Now selling them again Thumbs Up

Same as our local motor factors sell. Never had an issue with them in the past Thumbs Up

What’s the best value tool to fit these? Is there a generic tool or do I need a LR tool?

No special tools required.
33mm socket for hubnut, (assuming you have original driveshafts)
Torque wrench
Ratchet ring spanner useful for mounting bolts, socket to torque up same.
Wire brush to clean up exposed thread of mounting bolts before removal.
WD40 or other dismantling fluid.
Club or other hammer. DO NOT HAMMER DIRECTLY ON THE END OF THE DRIVE SHAFT
Old screwdriver or cold chisel to unstake / stake hubnut.
The brake disc and caliper have to come off and this requires bihex sockets and a TX50 bit.

See wiki forum under maintenance and also search for Front wheel bearing thread started by Rnclayton on 14/10/19.

Good luck

John

I take it the new type hub nut doesnt require any staking or retaining as such?
