    Front Wheel Bearing

    Hello All - Anyone here done a DIY on a front wheel bearing ? My MK4 front drivers side wheel bearing is squealing like a pig and needs changing badly. Anyone here done one ? Is it a big job ?

    It depends on if you want to replace just the bearing, or the hub/bearing assembly. If you don't want to buy a new hub you'll need to press the hub out of the old bearing and into the new one. If you replace the hub/bearing as a complete unit it's much simpler (just undo some bolts, slide hub/bearing out, slide new one in and put bolts back in). I'm not sure about a MKIV, but most cars are substantially cheaper to buy just the bearing for parts.

    Yeah - I was planning on replacing the whole hub/bearing assembly. I picked one up for 80 bux so its already to go. I just have to find a gear pully to get the original hub off. Can I rent one of these at CT ?
