Front wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

Cameron hearne

Hi, could anyone please advise me I am needing to change my front wheel bearings and I can’t find any which look like the ones in my car which are open race bearings type, I can find sealed bearings which are bigger but does this mean I have to buy a different hub to fit these bearings or is there anywhere which would still sell the old style bearings please? 
my car is a vw polo coupe s mk2 1989 1.3 litre 

if anyone could please help me I would really appreciate it, thanks

If you don't change the hub, you have to remove a spacer collar from it. I thought about doing it once and decided unless I turned it down in a lathe, there was no chance of shifting it. Much, much easier to change the hubs with the bearings, they're not particularly expensive.
