Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but the guide mentioned in the thread is about to be a life saver. I am gathering parts and tools for the trip to fix our LR3 on the edge of civilization.
Last weekend, Mrs Noname was driving home at 10 p.m., when she stopped halfway for a burger, when she realized, after 200 miles on the 75 mph interstate, that the wheel bearing was gone. Couldn't even drive across the road to the hotel to wait. Geico roadside assistance arranged to tow the LR3 (and brought her) back to Dallas, arriving at 4 a.m. Dealer took a day and a half, and charged $850 for one bearing.
Today, a week later, the other bearing has failed, and she is in a small town 400 miles from an LR dealer (and me.) Thanks to all of you for the help. I'll make the membership upgrade when the parts are on and things slow down.
