Description Reviews If you are hearing a grinding noise when you turn your MINI, it could be your wheel bearing. An easy test to perform to test this is to make a few sharp S turns. If the noise comes and goes rapidly, it is most likely your bearing. To determine which side needs replacement, the side you are loading when the sound is present is the side that is bad. This wheel bearing is brand new and is ready to bolt on. This part is not a cheap China part; it is a high quality, NSK wheel bearing that might actually come in a MINI box that we buy from a local distributor. So while a MINI part, it's not from MINI. This part number is for a M12 Lug Bolt. Note: Sold as each. 1 Review 5 Easy install, fit well Posted by Unknown on 24th Aug 2016 This is a direct OEM replacement so not your cheap $100 wheel bearing on Amazon. I intend to keep my R53 for awhile so decided best bet was to go with OEM replacement. Install was very easy following Bentley Manual, YouTube and some helpful pointed from Detroit Tuned. Saved me a couple doing it myself which helped justify the cost of OEM.
