Hi All,

Looking to do a front gen 2 bearing on my Daughters car, any one bought the tool if so what one did you get?

Will the freezer trick help on these gen 2 bearings?

Just looking for some advice (y) (y) (y)

I bought mine from eBay which is for my T5. There are several different sizes available singly or you can buy a multi kit, for more money. If you go the ebay route check they havecstock before you buy. I watched a couple of YouTube videos on how it worked. Unfortunately the lead time meant I had to get the garage to do the work for the MOT. I only replaced it as the reluctor ring for the ABS is part of the bearing,and changing the sensor did not fix the problem.

Probably too late to help, but having done the rear wheel bearings on my T5 (they are also GEN2 type bearings) I would say the tool is the ONLY way to do it. The problem is removing them from the hub, the tool has specific reaction plates for each vehicle. I have access to some big presses at work, but unless you can find a way to hold it a press wouldnt help.

I bought a chinese copy of a Sealey / Laser tool, and despite my concerns ( I had to swing off a 3ft breaker bar before the bearing let go!), it worked perfectly.
