Hi

I've had a rear wheel bearing that has been grumbling for a while - having not worked on 88 suspension before, is there anything in particular that I need to know about replacing the bearings?

The '88 rear wheel bearings are the same as for all years. It's a relatively simple task with the hardest part being the removal and reinstallation of the hub nut if you don't have the right tools. Here is a set of instructions for removing the rear axle from the early cars, but you'll find all the info you need in here just the same. You'll have to remove the tire, caliper, rotor, hub nut, and finally the bearing assembly... forget about the rest: www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum9/HTML/000004.html

Hiya BB

Thanks for the swift reply.

If I've understood the linked thread correctly, as I'm just changing the hubs, I won't need to go beyond removing the calipers and disks - is that correct?

See my Cave, Axle
Covers hub too.
