2006 LR3 HSE with 260k km. My mechanic doesn't like working on this vehicle. Yesterday I asked him to look the vehicle over before a road trip to James Bay. He thought the front bearings might be going and advised to go to a mechanic that works on bearings for European cars. I decided to look for myself. The fronts seem solid, but the backs have a lot of play. Front assemblies are easy to find, but backs are not. Atlantic British sells the bearings and hubs separately. The fronts look really easy to replace, but I am thinking the backs may require a press for the bearings. Is that correct? Thanks in advance.

thanks. after posting i found a video from powerfuluk. looks a bit tricky but I think I can pull it off. Was a shame I didn't get to this sooner. I took a road trip to the farthest northern road on the east coast I can drive to. Had to take the Lincoln instead. Not as much room for boondocking in.

My first point in the repair was to replace the lugs. Many were rounded and almost all were swollen. I used a nut remover for most, but one wouldn't release. After removing the chrome and getting to the harndened steel nut, i snapped it off. Now I am drilling the remainder out. So it looks like a hub replacement is required over a bearing replacement. Would like to know your thoughts.
