Talk to Yves and he can order the bolts, I got mine along with the bearings. He special ordered it for me. You might be able to catch them before it ships to add it to the order.
It might be this number for the bolts 31 12 6 760 203 4.50ea 36.00

was the wheel speed sensor visible/exposed while replacing the wheel bearing assembly?

UPDATE: the supposedly 'bearing' noise went away --- after replacing tires. New tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. Very quite and great grip! Had nothing to do with the bearings.

Finally, I got enough miles out of the ContiSportContact 2's (run flats) to justify replacing the tires. Got 55K miles on fronts and 25K mi on the rears.

Fronts were still OK tread wise, but bean to 'feather'. Front left was feathering on the inner side of the tire. Front right was feathering on th outer side of the tire --- any guesses on how alignment needs to be adjusted?

For the rears, the rear right was worn almost to no more tread. Rear left has plenty tread left --- maybe another 10K? Does the rear differential favor transferring the torque to the rear right?

Thanks!

Just a side note: If I have a choice for brand of wheel bearings it will most definitely be SKF! Their quality is unparalleled!
