Hi All
I have just discovered a considerable amount of play in the rear wheel of my C1 Exec (30k miles).
I presume this is the rear wheel bearings, which I believe are different from the Front Bearings.
Has anyone published a guide to replacing the rear bearings, and where they can be sourced, any other parts/kit required?
Thanks in anticipation of your help

You sure it isn't just a loose nut? It's unusual for these bearings to go and replacement isn't as straightforward as front ones. The bearing itself is a 6205 2RS C3  (two rubber seals and a larger than standard radial clearance) available from any bearing stockist/motor factor/ebay!

Found the problem thanks.
The central wheel nut was not tight as you predicted, pulling it up to the correct torque removed the problem.
While I was in there I replaced the rear disk and pads (all EBC parts) and made sure that everything else was tight and orientation of spacer was correct.
Thanks for your help
