Chewing Wheelbearings??


bearing failure occurs mainly from several things .1 will be excessive preload ( over tightening the nut or missing spacer between bearings. 2 will be incorrect grease . 3 will be excessive amount of grease ( excessive grease will overheat the bearing and together with excessive preload will cause quick failure. 4 unbalanced wheels and faulty cv joints cause brinnelling which destroys the bearing Personally I would look for a missing spacer between the bearings or an incorrect size spacer.

Rear wheel bearing


If you have ABS then the wheel bears are not replaceable, and the entire hub needs to be replaced as a unit. The OEM part # is 4340250G11

If you do not have ABS then they are replaceable. The inner bearing is part # 0926225061, and the outer bearing is part # 0926220069.

The rear wheel bearings are pressed in the brake drum with a spacer in between.

Remove the rear brake drum and place it on a work surface.

Tap out the opposite side with a screwdriver/punch and a hammer. (i.e. tap out the inner bearing when the outside of the brake drum is facing you, and tap out the outer bearing when the inside/brae shoe side of the drum is facing you)

Tap in the new bearings making sure that the sealed sides are facing out.

How do i replace my front wheel bearings on my 1997 vw jetta


You'll need to remove wheel hub assembly. Disconnect from the strut and lower ball joint, unbolt the brake caliper, carrier and rotor. Press out the wheel hub, remove the retaining clips in the assembly and press out the old bearing.

How to replace front bearings


I'm afraid that I will have to give you the same advice. The VW manual states that the wheel bearings are pressed into and out of the wheel bearing hub assembly, and to do this you need to have access to a shop press and the properly sized sleeves for pressing the bearing seats out of the wheel bearing hub.

No, the front wheel bearings are relatively easy to replace on the Festiva. They just knock out and press back in. I recently replaced the front bearings and all (4) struts on mine and it went well.
