What do you mean smaller in size? They should be identical. Take measurements of the old bearings (O.D., Bore, and width), and compare to the new bearings. Note: most all bearings are measuerd in metric – so measure in mm, not inches. Also – check the numbers stamped on the side of the old bearings to make sure they match with the replacement ones you have – suffix may be slightly different, but base number should be the same. If the bearings are different, it certainly won’t be the first time I’ve seen the parts diagram disagree with what is there… and one reason I always recommend pulling the old bearings first so you can verify what you got and what to order.


PS: There is no such thing as an “OEM” bearing ! Bosch didn’t make ‘em… some other company made them, and then they were slapped in a Bosch branded box/bag so they could charge you a few extra bucks ;)
