COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 8th July
Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still strongly recommended to get one done.

Replacing the wheel bearing on an Alfa Romeo Giulietta

Replacing a Giulietta wheel bearing.

:alt

First job is to get the car safely jacked up off the ground and remove the road wheel, then undo the brake caliper retaining bolts and slide the whole caliper off the disc.

:alt

Undo the brake disc retaining screw and remove the brake disc.

:alt

Undo the hub nut, a nut gun is best for this as it is difficult to hold the hub still when using a spanner.

:alt

Using a puller and bracket pull the hub out of the bearing.

:alt

The inner bearing will almost certainly come off with the hub and this will need to be carefully cut off using a grinder.

:alt

Undo the four bearing securing bolts ant the bearing should come out, but you may find you need to use a bit more aggressive methods as it will almost certainly have corroded in place.

:alt

Once you have removed the wheel bearing clean out the housing so the new bearing fits nicely. Then fit the new wheel bearing using the reverse of the procedure above.
