Dont forget to pack your new bearings completely full of marine grease (also sold as "propshaft grease") its specifically designed to withstand moisture even submerged in salt water. It will prolong the life of the bearings significantly compare to the original grease that I suspect it's designed to NOT keep the bearings alive for much longer then your cars warranty..

Erm, citronut passed away five years ago. However, I feel certain somebody with more knowledge than I will be able to advise you.

Malcolm, check these are the right parts before you buy as the diagram/reply by Marc shows a 'Wheel bearing' (3) kit, whereas original post was for "rear arm bearing kits" which according to the diagram should be parts 7 , 8, 9 & 10 (Possibly 6 spacer tube?) at least.

Item (1) in the diagram at the bottom is for the complete rear suspension ARM which includes ALL the components highlighted:

I only mentioned the rear hub bearing which includes everything in item (3) in my original diagram as the complete kits are no longer available from Citroen given that some parts are now unavailable.

The complete kit part numbers (1) when available were:
(Left) 5175AP £458.82
(Right) 5175AQ £458.82

Any items not in Item (3) you may need, list them up here and I can tell you if they are available form Citroen.

If you’re doing the rear arm bearings, there was an excellent article showing exactly how to do the job in Car Mechanics magazine in the last couple of months.
