Question about Volkswagen Jetta
Hi, first make sure the bearing is really bad. The rotor is normally held on to the hub by just one screw. If that screw is missing, the rotor could be loose while the bearing is actually fine. That said, I think you probably did crack the bearing--and possibly the race too. That is exactly what to expect when you hit a curb really hard straight on. If you want to do the repair yourself, you will have to inspect everything carefully to make sure you replace everything that went bad. You should probably do both sides and get a 4-wheel alignment afterwards, but the other side is up to you. You will also need a bearing press to get the bearings in and out of the hub. I have pasted the instructions from autozone.com below. These are not tapered roller bearings, so there is just one on each wheel. However, they may be sold in sets, as I think they always recommend replacing both. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
1995-99Cabrio, 1993-99 Golf and Jetta
NOTE The hub and bearing are pressed into the knuckle and the bearing cannot be reused once the hub has been removed.
