Rear hubs needed, urgent....
« on: July 16, 2017, 17:32:01 »
The only thing i did not check 2 years before during my MK IV rebuild was the rear hub assembly on my MK IV.
   
   Now, I think on the Silvretta high alpine road, it happened, the lousy thin shims between the wheel bearings and spacer gave up, a quite big endplay in the bearings caused the outer cone to walk around on the hub.
   
   The right hub is worn out where the outer bearing cone sits and need to be replaced.
   
   Does anybody know who in the UK has the MK IV hubs in stock ??
   
   I highly appreciate every support.
   
   We planned a Cobra holiday in Italy for the first week in September enjoying good wine and food in the Barolo area.......hopefully with the repaired car.[:0]
