Front Wheel Bearing

My front drivers side wheel bearing has started making a rolling noise. I think it's time to replace it. According to the forums it's relatively easy, itís about as difficult as changing the brakes. I think I am going to channel my inner mechanic and tackle it myself. With Pinky being a 2006, I suspect there is going to be a lot of rust. I have my liquid wrench ready for the job.

I have a new Axle Nut, and 4 hub bolts on order. Looks like I will need a 32mm socket and a breaker bar for the Axle Nut, and some torx for the rest of the project. I briefly glanced at the Bentley Manual; it looks like it has the torq specs listed.

Two weeks ago I got the whole ABS system replaced by the dealership. I am really hoping that the speed sensor comes off with no issues.

Any words of advice?
