Series 1 VS Berlina 3.8L
Big hey to all,

I'm only new to the site and have a problem with both the front hubs on my VS series 1 Berlina V6. My mechanic has told me that the bearings are fragged and that they are a one piece unit.

The car has ABS but is NOT IRS.

After having a look early today I can see the hex/allen screws on the back of the hub that I have been told can be pulled to remove the hub, but the mechanic said the ABS model shouldn't have these, however mine does and it's ABS.

If someone has the time to just post a quick run-down of the hub replacement that would be great, cause it's driving me mad :bang: by now.

I'm sick of hearing different things from different sources. Repco told me i'd need a $580 dollar machine just to the job, and that i think is a load of bull.

all you need is an allen key to remove the three bolts + the abs sensor. be wary with the new hubs as the abs sensor wheels are different between irs & solid axle one hasa black plasic backing the other is grey . i cant remember off the top of my head which is which but make sure you order the right one for your car
