Default 2010 SX4 front wheel bearings

Hello Suzuki Fans
Now that I have my snow tires off I can hear some (left?) front wheel bearing noise coming on so I need to get informed and prepared. I have changed front wheel bearings in other FWD cars and I have a press. Before I dig in are there any tricky Suzuki-specific things I should be aware of? I would appreciate any tips.

Will I need to get the parts from a (former) Suzuki dealer or will a regular jobber get me the same thing?

Where can I find a manual? If I could at least see the parts diagram that might tell me something useful. I once saw a manual online but it was terrible.

I have already had to replace one of the SX4 rear wheel bearings and this was much easier than on a Honda Civic.

Just make sure the bearing is the correct way around for the ABS sensor

I don't see anything about the ABS sensor in the diagram. Can you please elaborate?

The bearing will have a seal on one side that looks like this, it needs to be facing inwards towards the ABS sensor (little plastic jobbie up top).

That photo really helps. I can see the sensor needs to come out before installing the bearing. I'm guessing that in order for the sensor to work the seal, or something just under it, must be rotating. Magnetic?
APM tells me they have the bearing in stock for $121 Cdn. I guess I need to make sure it has the proper ABS thing on it. Are there Suzukis that don't have ABS and use the same bearing?

Yes.
I only see one bearing listed and 1 type of front knuckle with a hole for the sensor. I assume they all have ABS. Think you can leave the sensor in place whilst changing the bearing, but if it comes out without a fight I would remove it so as less likely to damage it whilst swapping the bearing.

Thanks very much. That is very helpful. The link about the ABS bearings was useful, too.

In the photo above it certainly looks like the ABS sensor sticks out over the bearing which makes it look prone to damage.

Best to remove the sensor when re/re bearing, prone to damage..

You will need a shop press or "hub tamer" https://www.harborfreight.com/front-...ers-63260.html to re/re the bearing..

CTC may have one in there loaner program..
