    I have a 55 plate (facelift) a3 1.6 FSI, the wheel bearings have gone so I went euro and got the whole hub with the bearings etc, but I just want to know how hard/easy it is?

    Any tips?

    Do I need to remove the big multi spline in the middle of the hub?

    Any help would be great as I am attempting it tomorrow!

    Is the multi spline a M16 or M18? I have just found a M16 spline bit which fits OK but not great, but I reckon I'll be able to get it off with a M16 spline bit?

    Make sure you have the correct spline socket - it has to be spot on otherwise it will slip and round off due to the amount of torque you are going to have to use to undo it.
