As to where you would get one I am not sure. I bought mine from SAAB but that was 10 years ago and I don't think they still do them.

But before we get carried away, Why do you want to change the bearing? I was doing during a renovation, and on looking at it decided it was fine so didnt chnage it. Are you sure yours has gone? What are the symptoms?
