Kevin is a local mobile mechanic and I have been meaning to give some work, so I gave him a call and he was able to pop round a few days later, brand new bearings in hand. Fantastic.
Kevin is a really great guy and didn't mind me watching / helping him where I could, so not only did I get the bearings changed over for a extremely reasonable rate, but I learnt a few little tips along the way. You can see from the pics below that I took the wheel off in readiness, which meant Kevin was able to get straight to work replacing the bearings. Kevin has a website www.m-v-s-solutions.co.uk and if you're after a top quality mechanic who comes to your house or work, Kevin is your guy. He didn't even complain about the coffee I made him. What a gent!
