Hello,
would a front axial / hub/ spigot/ bearing from a W214 E300 be the same as a W210 E300TD and fit it?
Cheers.

Its possible but because they have very different front suspension design --- unlikely Bearing part nos will be your friend

Cheers Graeme,
it'll be great as I know one not too far away from me, but I need to be sure.
Very different suspension design is not helping tho...

Just seeing the title, I ment the whole assembly as explain after, not only the bearing...
Sorry for that.
Cheers.

The hub assembly is completely different. In the W124 it forms part of the Macpherson "type" strut[ SHOCK ABSORBER] In this arrangement the hub swivels on the ball joint on the lower suspension arm and the strut acts as the upper swivel. In the W210 the hub casting has both upper and lower ball joints and the shock absorber is separate.
