View Full Version : 2001.5 A4 wheel bearing.

11-16-2009, 01:10 PM
Ok i narrowed my problem with the front end hopping and dancing around to a front passenger side wheel bearing. I have searched and got some ballpark answers to some of the questions I had.. However I see there is a few post's that the v6 2.8 / 1.8t 2001+ have the same front bearing size. There are many diffferent ones. With my car being a 2001.5 a4 1.8t quattro automatic will all of them work or do I need a specific one?

Also, do I just need the bearing? I seen a few that look to be bolted down like this one

opposed to this one

Thanks guys. [up]

i would call up a dealership and have them tell you the part number as wheel bearings much like most things are vin specific. iirc, it is the pressed in version for the b5's as opposed to the bolted version on b6's and b7's. if it is pressed in, you would need to remove the spindle and have the hub pressed out, the press the new bearing in, then press the hub back in. if you have the spindle off the car, most shops will only charge 25-50 bucks to press everything.

The first pictured wheel bearing you have there is for a B6/B7 front wheel bearing the second one is the B5 wheel bearing

And yes the 2001 1.8T's have the same wheel bearing as the V6's the 82mm where the 2000 and down are 75mm
