So Long E46

Traded the Touring. I needed a new Truck and something had to go. The Touring got the nod. Passed the dealership today and it's the best looking car on the front row. Won't sit there long.

Attempting Double Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement - HUMP DAY!

Did mine last winter. In Florida, winter is 75 degrees. Had all the needed tools and didn't screw anything up. 2 hours per side. Doing well. Got my pullers etc. from local Harbor Freight.

The linkage from the outside handle to the latch has come off. Remove door card and reattach. There is a keeper that you'll probably find in the bottom of the door. It may be broken.
