Default Rear wheel bearings

Anyone have any experience replacing rear wheel bearings on Audi A4
quattro 1.8t 2000. I checked my bentley and it appears fairly
involved. I guess I'm wondering how long it took, and how much blood
was involved.

Don,
If you're into doing it yourself, a Hubshark tool or something similar may
be the answer - I believe that JCWitless has something similar - basically
you remove the axle and hub from the bearing and press it out of the strut
in-situ, so you don't need to remove the strut and press it out on a shop
press. The best part (mostly on the front) is that you don't mess with the
alignment.
Cheers!

Fifth item down.

I've just had one done on my 2000 2.8 Quattro. I got the garage to do. It
took them a couple of hours.
