When replacing the wheel bearings it is important that the wheel hub unit must be cleaned thoroughly of all the old grease and a good visual inspection of the hub unit is carried out.

The FAG wheel bearing kit comes with two ball-roller bearings, seals and a grease pack. It is important to pack the new bearings with the grease provided within the kit, failure of do this will resort in premature wear.

A handy guide to changing the clutch on the VW Transporter T2, as with so many of these vehicles it is vital that the whole of the clutch release system is checked. Many have a clutch cable which over time can become stretched, and the release arm and pivot points/bushes can also become worn which all could lead to the clutch not clearing fully.

The clutch release bearing must be replaced as a matter of course on any clutch change. Watch out for modified vehicles which may require a non-standard or up rated clutch.
