Wheel Bearings.

So I've done my rear right wheel bearing. I just ordered another one on eBay but there was another piece a mechanic said I had to get with it.

Is it a lock nut?

I can't find anything listed under that name on eBay.

Cheers!!

He could be referring to the axle nut. Manual recommends replacement.

Yes, it is the axle nut, which is on the end of the driveshaft, visible right in the center of your brake disc. It's a "one time use" item, so once you remove it, you have to replace it.

Here is an eBay auction for one. I think they may be cheaper than this at a dealer.

Proper torque....I broke a large breaker bar doing mine....also get good bearings as this is a job you do not want to do often......F.A.G. , Timken are probably the best bearings to use.
