Description
 
This is a replacement front outer wheel bearing for VW Volkswagen Bug, Super Beetle, Karmann Ghia, Bus or Type 3. Tapered roller wheel bearings are a direct replacement for the old early ball bearing style wheel bearings. New wheel bearings always come with a new inner race. You should never try to use the old race over. When tightening tapered wheel bearings, there is a thrust washer just before the final clamp or lock nut. This thrust washer must have .002 clearance between the nut and the washer. I will usually tighten the nut down and make sure the thrust washer moves. You can take a screwdriver and pry the washer side to side or up and down to check for movement. I try to get the nut tight as possible as long as the thrust washer still moves. If you tighten down the nut too tight and the thrust washer has no clearance, so when the wheel bearings get hot and expand, they can lock up and burn on to the spindle causing it to breaking off.
