Rear wheel bearing replacement

So I’ve had a crazy vibrations for 3 months and haven’t been able to figure out what it is. Just put new control arms on the front and no change. Thinking it is the rear passenger wheel bearing. How hard is this to do and does anyone have a good DIY link. And what are the best tools to use without spending an arm and a leg to buy bmw “special” tools. 2006 325xi.

Unfortunately, wheel bearings on BMWs are not DIY jobs like they are on most cars. What are the details of the problem?

Make sure it's the wheel bearing. You can do this by, jacking up the rear and moving the wheel in and out to see if there's any play. Also, another sign it's the wheel bearing is if it makes a humming noise when you steer left or right in highway speeds.
