I just call the dealership and they want $450.00 to do the job I can't believe how much I saved by using this site! They said something about 39mm bearing? I love 2Carpros

Are you referring to the axle nut? I can't think of anything that is 39 mm on the bearing assembly. It is probably the outside diameter of the bearing.

I've replaced a lot of wheel bearings but never an assembly that looks like the ones in the photos I found.

Hello
Thanks for the donation.

I believe I will need more information here to better assist you. Could you please be more specific with the question? Do you mean one side of your vehicle has a different size hub bearings?

Thanks for using 2carpros. Com!

As you can see, I have a 2004 PT Cruiser, I need to know if the left side hub bearing is a job I can handle or not. I've pulled and installed engines, trans, rears, done clutches, etc. The mechanic wants close to 300 for the job, money being tight like it is I'll do it myself if not too difficult.

If you have a good repair manual, and you have done all the other things you mentioned, you will be fine.
