    Hi all

    I own a 1990 Volvo 240 that is making a sound that is driving me nuts! I am
    95% sure that the rear wheel bearing on the right (passenger) side is the
    problem. Due to the high cost of labour (I was quoted $207 at one place
    cause it is a 3 hour job), I was considering doing it myself, with the help
    of my boyfriend and my trusty Bentley's book. I was wondering if anyone on
    here has attempted this type of repair and if there are any tips and trick
    you can provide me with.

    TIA

    It is not something you can do yourself within 10 minutes. I suggest you ask
    a few generic garages for a price. The bearing is btw more expensive than
    similar bearings of other brands.

    I replaced the rear bearings on my 1800. I don't know if the 240 axle is
    similar or not. On mine I had to have a machine shop press off the old
    bearings and press on new ones. Basically you pull the axle half from the
    car, take it to the shop, then put it back together.

    This is certainly an advanced DIY job and there is no way to know if you and
    your boyfriend have the skills or not. Only you can make that decision.
