    Hi , need to replace one of the rear wheel bearings on my car

    its the 2005 hatchback 2.0 tdi sport 140

    I had to replace the whole hub on mine due to the abs ring perishing. Only problem i ran into was the spline socket needed for the hub nut...just brought the VAG Laser set.

    Mine is a 53 plate and id pulled off with ease, took me about an hour tops and I am no mechanic

    That ebay one looks different to the one i had to get..maybe they changed em in 2005?

    Got mine from GSF cant recall the price but a lot cheaper than audi. Also did you use the 25% off code for ecp?

    You might need the XZN or "triple square" bit. Google "XZN".

    Note this is not the same as multispline

    As for the part, Dave at Stoke Audi ail sort you out (see Stoke Audi section of the forum).

    Laser Tools | 4939 | Spline Bit Set - 1/2"D 6pc

    This is the set i got, only £20 from a local tool store. I think its the M16/M18 you need. I didnt want to risk it slipping and chewing the spline...what a nightmare that would be haha
