ok, so i think my rear bearing is going, as it makes a road noise type sound and when i turn right the noise increases to a louder grinding style noise, also i noticed my diff has been weeping, it doesn't look recent so im worried its ran dry. i w\s planing to change it with the clutch change any way but i think i am going to buy some diff oil next week to be safe, but would a dry diff make these noises and more so turning a certain way?
also how do i go about changing this, is this a pressed bearing or do i need to get this to a garage?
im very mechanically oriented/minded. and do everything myself down to clutches and head gaskets etc, so i want to avoid a garage at all costs.
i can get access to a press but i want to know if this is how it comes out, and if i even need a press im wondering if i can use a large socket or pipe and a bolt and washers to draw the bearing out and then to draw it back in?
also where's the best place to get one, i know pattern bearing dont last long, im in touch with all german parts about my clutch and bearing and seals so would they be best place? or should i go direct to vw/audi. i can get trade as i send trade there way from my place,
