My advice is buy a quality bearing you dont want to be doing this twice. I  unfortunately brought a cheap one and did do it twice. This happened to me about 2011 and i was working for a Skoda main dealer and was able to use some of the special tools. The main tool you need is a 12" bolt and 1" nut  to draw the bearing out and the new back in. I had access to this but the other tools i didn't have. So i used what could find around the workshop.

Hi.

If you don't have one already, I would seriously invest in a Haynes manual. They are never perfect but I wouldn't be without one.

I use Mister Auto for many parts. I think they are in the UK and they usually give you a choice of brands for each part.

Good luck

Good luck with the repair.

Check out this ebay item 252492833178
This is the kind of tools you need to remove and install your rear wheel bearing.
