    Comments about MOOG Hub Assemblies Front Wheel Hub Assembly:

    This is an easy job if the installer has the correct tools. I wouldn't recommend doing it otherwise. For the Mark 5 VW Jetta, you'll need a 12mm triple square or spline bit socket, the longer ones work better to clear the driveshaft CV boot. It was my first time replacing a front bearing hub on one of these Jettas and the job took me about an hour. I'm confident I could do the next one in less time. VW recommends replacing the torque to yield stretch bolts so you should have those beforehand. Make sure you understand and follow the proper torque process of the driveshaft to wheel bearing bolt. It has to be done with no load (vehicle weight) on it.

    No problems. Fit was good. Bearings are nice and quiet.

    This is a good quality made in USA part.

      • Q:

        2006 VW Passat 2.0T front end making loud roaring "woomp woomp" noise at speeds over 30 mph. Louder the faster you go. I think I have a bad wheel bearing. How do I know if I need to replace the hub assembly, or just a bearing? How do I determine if it's the wheel bearing, and not a bad CV joint?

          Sorry, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

        • A:

          You must replace the "Hub/Bearing" assembly. The bearing is not separate from the hub, and as the owner of a 2001 Passat (which did have separate bearing and hub) the current set up is much easier.
          There is no presswork needed on the newer, combined units. Can do it on your driveway.

          Also, what you described is definitely a wheel bearing. CV joints make a clicking noise on turns. The Womphwomphwomph noise is a bearing.

          A:

          The Wheel Hub Assembly from National does not come with the stretch bolts. The stock bolts can be used with this wheel hub assembly.

        • A:

          The large center bolt is a stretch bold and CANNOT be reused.

          The four smaller bolts that attach the hub unit to the knuckle are also stretch bolts (torque-to-yield), but I suspect many shops re-use them.
