Stub axle on eBay for around 25 and bearing around 10. So should cost 35 to sort hopefully

its kinda true though, you can usualy hear a rear bearing and should atleast try and find out what the noise is,

mine was purely an apprentice at a pikey garage fitted it for free and didnt put any grease in it

Stub is usually wise as a precaution because something must have caused the bearing to fail and they can chew the stub on the way off.

If there's a bit of play you might find it'll eat the next set because that play introduces premature wear.

Generally if its not scored or bright blue you should be OK.

The bearings come as a set with both the inner and the outer, change both, the inner one will have been damaged by the wheel not running straight due to the collapsed outer. I think it was only 17 when I bought them, that might have even been 2 sets.

Because the bearing would normally take up the space, once that has failed there's nothing between the castle nut and the drum.

The bearings will fall out, you might be thinking of the races - the metal rings - yes they will knock out.

Can someone confirm that answer, I've not done Corsa ones for a while - based my post on trailer parts

The racers also sometimes get stuck on the stub axle. If I was you replace the whole lot f bearings/racers.
I just replaced bearing on mrs Corsa, 2 weeks later and it's gone again. Otherside that I changed (with stub axle) has been fine. So will replace stub axle now or same issue will keep happening.
