Nothing special. Itís just a bolt on k04 car. At least on race gas itís fun. More reliable than messing with meth.

How do you know if your front bearings are bad? I donít have smooth rotors anymore so it makes it more difficult for me to tell.

The whole hub assembly can start to wobble when bearing gets really bad.

For me, the rear was bad early in the summer and I didnít notice till it started making enough noise that when I jacked up the car and looked it was critical that I left the car at the shop and got a ride home. Sort of a rotational noise unrelated to braking but increases with speed for me. Came back to finish it later with the parts.

For these fronts itís not that bad but the noise is getting there. I had originally thought it was just because I had low pads and/or rotors but itís definitely a bad bearing. At least the front and the tears are the same part and you can knock it out pretty quickly.

Yeah, the older school car had it pressed in to the knuckle. It seems you can just unbolt this hub assembly from the knuckle & replace the unit with a bearing already pressed.

That's only true on AWD cars. FWD cars have a different part number for the rears iirc.

Yup. This is a r32 so itís the same all around. The mk6 gti unfortunately isnít. I buy crates of oil and parts that I can mix and match - eg the front brakes on both cars are the same now so I try and buy rotors in sets of 3/4 so I donít have to. Same with pads, oil, filters, etc.

Replace the whole assembly and be done with it. Already had to do the rear last year but it feels recent. Planning to do fronts this week so I donít have to worry about it again.

Still considering selling the car on a wagon or something. If I do, never going to do the chains. If I donít, then itís all in. Itís fine as a daily, just old. It would be nice to have something comfy and faster.

You should just part it out. Probably worth more that way lol.

I have 3 front grills, two of them oem. Just selling the hoard of mk5 and 6 parts I have would be worth it.
