Seems like it will be a while before it all gets figured out.


Yep, who knows how long this is all gonna take.

In the meantime, my Jetta has a rear wheel bearing going out. The dash on our Jetta is lit up like a Christmas tree. Errors for the stability control, the ABS, the air bag, and the TPS system along with the noise from the bearing. I connected my laptop up to the Jetta via the VAGCOM cable that I have and the thing told me where the issues are coming from, right rear wheel. All of those systems rely on data from the speed sensor and the sensor reads the tire rotation from the bearing (I already replaced the sensor). I now have all the parts and tools I need to replace the bearing and I'll be doing that this weekend. It's going to be a bear since the axle bolt gets torqued to 150 lb-ft PLUS 180 degrees.  :o




axle bolt



caliper to carrier (counterhold to keep from spinning) 35 NM REPLACE

caliper carrier (XZN 14 bolt) 90 NM plus 90 degrees. REPLACE

little screw/bolt that holds the disk on. 4 NM

rear axle bolt (XZN 18) 200 NM plus 180 degrees REPLACE

The axle bolt should be torqued to 200 NM and then the tire gets reinstalled, then remove the jack stands/jack so that the cars weight is on the tire. Then the bolt is tightened the additional 180 degrees. Of course the car will have to be jacked up again and the tire removed so that the new dust cap and the brake caliper can be reinstalled.    :o

I finally replaced the ailing bearing yesterday. All went well and after clearing the error codes my dash is no longer lit up like a Christmas tree and the bearing noise is gone.

The hardest part of the whole thing for me was torqueing the caliper carrier bolts (because of the clearance issue) and getting the damn new dust cover on.

When I pulled the old bearing out it was plain to see that it had a big problem. The big axle bolt was covered in oil and so was the bearing. There was a lot of play on the outside portion of the bearing as well.

Next!

Are you going to do the other side?

I should but since it's fine and not making any noise or causing any error codes I'll leave it alone for now. I have under 40k miles on the odo and there was no reason for the bearing to be going out so early anyway. I'm thinking that it was just a fluke with the bad bearing having some kinda manufacturing defect.

Is that the side all the exhaust pollutants is pouring out of?

No, that would be the left side. The extra NOX emissions is keeping the other one protected when in reverse.
That is very low miles for a wheel bearing failure. Glad you got it fixed. I've never replaced a wheel bearing in any of the VW fleet yet. Brake pads and rotors, plenty of those, mostly from corrosion.
Diesel fuel prices locally took a $.25/gal drop over the weekend. I suppose the extremely mild winter and the crude price dropping below $40/barrel is making its way to the diesel market. Finally.

Looks like a lot of work for a low mileage car.
Diesel prices are looking sweet. I've been paying $2.169 per gallon. It is actually quite  bit cheaper to drive my car than ride the bike.

Yes, diesel prices are closing the gap on gasoline some lately. Price of crude oil dropped below $40/barrel and with the warm winter so far fuel supplies continue to increase even more. The price dropped about $.25/gal locally and while it's still about $.30 more than gas my cost per mile is still less to drive the diesel VW than the C10. And with the winter season the bike stays parked anyways.

Just lucky I guess?  :(  In the 40 years that I've owned vehicles this is the first time that I've had to replace a wheel bearing. The right front in my 03 Silverado has a lot of play in it (no noise or vibration yet though) so I guess that one is next. At least there's more room to work on that thing.

I received my 'goodwill' package today from VW. Just as advertised. A $500 gift card to spend anywhere, a $500 VW card to spend at the dealership (I'm thinking tires), and the 3 year 24/7 roadside assistance stuff. I have to visit a VW dealer in order for the offers to be activated. They wanna see the car with proof that I'm the owner and then I can spend the dough.    :thumbs:

I have been seeing their combo- [ Holiday / Save the Company] ads lately: $0 down, $0 first month, $0 interest and $0 something else. A 'sign and drive' deal. I am seriously considering buying one of those things.... the only consideration left is how much the monthly payments are. Anybody have any idea of the approximate amount that they send you monthly after buying one?
