I'm guessing its the carrier number 8. The bearing 9 floats in a rubber membrane in the carrier housing. I'm guessing that has deteriorated. Dont forget item 11 a thick sticky gooey double sided tape that helps stabilize the carrier. Also the Bently manual say to pre-load the bearing by sliding it back (?) about 10 mm before tightening the mounting bolts all the way. You should consider replacing item 1 (guido) since it has to be removed to get to the bearing. Match mark your splines at both end before removing the axle. I used a oil filter strap wrench to loosen the item 5 locking collar
