Question about Volkswagen Caddy
If its the old type there is a grease cap in the centre of the brake hub this must be removed to gain acess to the bearing ,,, a blunt chisel or screwdriver will prize it off ,, inside you will see a split pin locking the adjustment nut in place ,, remove this and the nut can be undone easily with a plires ,,, the bearing is tapered so the nut is not tightened fully to allow for some clearance,,,once the nut is off the outer bearing and washer will come out by rocking the brake hub '' the hup should then come off and allow you to acess the inner bearing which isin the brake hub behind the grease seal ,, if you fit a new bearing be careful to not overtighten the nut or it will cause the bearing to wear out quickly,,, i find a pliers is the best tool to adjust the nut ,, you just tighten the nut with it and then loosen slightly to allow a tiny amount of clearence ,,,make sure you use axle stands and block the other wheels because the handbrake must be off when carrying out this repair

most likely, the instructions would tell you to get the swaybar off first. double check the instructions at the library.

if it is a solid bearing do it up as tight as you can.if it is a tapered bearing do it up untill the nut is touching the bearing check the hub for play if you have got play do the nut up a bit more until the play is gone in the hub.make sure you do not over tighten the bearing or the wheel will not turn freely.the wheel needs to spin with no drag.

yes it is one big nut, however it looks like 4 individual nuts due to the fact that they are a thinly stacked layer or thin nuts held together by what you called the tab washer............only way to replace is to get a new one from ford........

Testimonial: "Thank-you for that, I have ordered a new one from the ford dealers. I just wonder why the 4 nuts were fitted in the first place? thank you"
