how in gods name can you do wheel bearings 10 mins a side, dont be ridiculous.

maybe if you are a cowboy and dont bother changing the collars or greasing up the bearings properly.

you are probs looking at an hours labour plus parts

your meant to take the drum off and knock the collars out and replace with the ones in the kit, unless its different on corsas, they should be one cone bearing at front and back of the drum, and a collar each side. Thats if your not hampered with an abs tone wheel at the back. Youve also got the seal on the rear cone to replace aswell

Doing that would but you should change the races.

All needs greasing, torquing, it's not 10 minutes.

How can so many people who have clearly never fitted a rear wheel bearing to a corsa 'try' to give advice?.
They are tapered bearings thus have no torque setting.
They should be adjusted untill the free play has been taken up.

Its not a 10 minute job, once you have removed the old races, cleaned up the drum before fitting the new races and greased each bearing you looking at 15-20mins easily.
Giving the drum is off it would be advisable to adjust your shoes and clean out all the dust.
I would allow 1-1.5hours for the complete job...done properly.

I've had them off to sort out out my handbrake cable. I had a friend helping me but it didn't seem hard at all, much much easier than I would have ever imagined!

agree with all of that apart from the torque, some taper require light tightening of the hub nut then re tightening every now and again, others, such as mine are tapered and use a waffer (torque) nut, they are done up tight, to 235nm, and dont require adjustments later on
