i thought this was good the other day.. really decent write up not for our car but gti.. not sure how alike they are. but its quality info reguardless.
Hey guys, before you tell me to search there is no DIY for the R32 just threads asking questions about getting it done at shops. with that said im going to be doing this with my buddy who is a professional mechanic but not for VW. i have the wheel bearing kit from ECS which includes the new bearing, c clip, and new bolt. i have a 3 jaw puller and the tools needed (sockets, breaker bar, ect) is there antything i should know before doing this and do i have everything needed to change an R32 wheel bearing.
the TDI club DIY is good, the only thing is that I was able to remove the bearing piece that sticks to the hub with a small gear puller but needed to use a hose clamp around the legs because it will slip off.
fun job, the bearing tool saves you so much trouble, removing the knucke to have the bearing pressed, specially if you dont have a press will add tons of time to the project.
