Default S8 D2 front and rear wheel bearings same?

Hi all
I am looking at replacing the rear wheel bearings on my car. Meyle have a complete set (bearing and hub) already pre assembled but only list it as for the front axle. Would this same set do for the rears?

I am trying to avoid having to buy the hub and bearing separately if I can as I don't think my press will be able to put them together.

Thanks Frank

Etka says not. The front bearing is 8E0498625B, the rear is 4D0407625H.

However, both are 82mm bearings and the hub is the same part number - 4D0407613D. I've asked TPS to check supersessions on the bearings - they may end up on the same number.

I have both in the workshop so I will check if they are physically compatible shortly.

I just looked up the parts on autodoc.co.uk and immediately found a non-OEM part that was listed as having both those (and several others) as the OEM equivalents, so chances are they're the same.
See the first item here: https://www.autodoc.co.uk/car-parts/oem/8e0498625b and expand the list of OEM equivalents.

Ah cool. I searched the rear bearing which doesn't show the front as equivalent but didn't do the other way round

There's no supersession between the two numbers, but I just bolted a front hub and bearing in to a rear upright. There is no discernable difference between the two so I think we can conclude they are the same part
