Don't know about SE5A, IIRC there were two different diameters depending on the year; but Nigel at QRG will know, and he only sells top quality such as Timken, etc.

Depends if you've got early or late bearings (they changed during production), and if a PO has fitted the later version. Safest way is to get the bearings out and get the numbers off them.

I think the inner (larger) bearings are the same on both types, it's the outer (smaller) bearing that is different on early and late cars

I bought a set from Nigel a few years ago for a SE5a and the outer was too big - mine is an early SE5a so takes the smaller SE5 bearings
As Phil says, best to check what is fitted first

looked into my notes for my Se5a

the inner front wheel bearing is available from TR6, the felt too

The outer bearing is, if dimensions are 45,2 / 19 / 15,5 mm

SKF VKHB2270
TIMKEN LM11949 or LM11910

cheers!
Michael

That's the larger / later version, where the outer bearing is 3/4" inside diameter

The smaller /earlier version has an outer bearing with 5/8" inside diameter
Bearing code is 03062/03162 for this one
