    You will find the hub plate is loctited on from factory, every one I have ever needed to remove it was incredibly tight, but not $600 tight though!

    The bearing it self though is pricey, genuine or SKF round $100
    genuine: ERR5285
    SKF: 3206 A-2RS1TN9 / MT33
    Regards

    If you cross reference the bearing part number, the bearing can be had for less than $20 from a bearing shop.

    and if you fit one of those it'll give up within a year , then it will get really expensive , the bearings that Dazza has listed are C3 rated and they will last

    The bearing number is the same as an SKF wheel hub bearing except for the suffix which denotes the type of grease.

    I bought an SKF wheel bearing on ebay for about $70 AFAIR , after checking it was the same. I believe the grease is probably higher melting point seeing its a wheel hub bearing.

    so you fitted a cheapo bearing and now you're getting defensive
    not taking the advice of people on here that have more experience......stupid?
    telling another to research via google when you haven't done enough yourself.......stupid?
    repairing a leaking expansion tank with silicone........that's 3 out of 3.

    Be careful when buying bearings on line - there is a big problem with counterfeit SKF bearings and even vendors on line who will sell second hand bearings. I would only use a trusted LR parts supplier these days and will pay a premium for this. The price you pay can be a clue to if it is genuine, but not always. I have seen SKF bearings where the packaging box says it was made in Austria but it was shipped out of China.

    As you are just looking to borrow the tools (I hope you have luck with this - must be someone in Adelaide who can help), no doubt you have already read up on these two great posts:

    How to replace the Td5 viscous fan bearing

    www.discovery2.co.uk / Viscous Fan Pulley - Bearing Replacement

    At the time - I used this job to justify buying the right removal tools. It take a surprising amount of force to get it to come undone so do protect the radiator - but the rest went exactly as written up. I ended up with the fan removal tool wedged underneath rather than above and then had a 1m pipe over the end of the breaker bar and was convinced I was going to break something with the amount of force it needed. I would not try to do with two people as this is a recipe for the person holding the fan removal tool to get injured.

    ROFL.
    ...and Sigh...
    What a hoot! Its a Bearing. Its a Bearing that is readily available from a Bearing Shop. An actual shop (not online)
    If you believe that paying 80 or so, dollars for a Bearing is the way to go, then knock yourself out. Go nuts.
