Q: Changing Rear Discs on MK3 5 Stud....
« on: June 01, 2012, 01:59:00 pm »
The Question pertains to the Changing of the Rear disc on a MK3 GTI/VR6 Rear Beam...

The New Discs don't appear to have the ABS Speed Rings installed on them?

Is there a ABS Specific Disc or does the Speed ring get removed from the old disk and pressed on to the new disc?

Before you start greasing up bearings, make sure the speed sensor ring actually fits over the little hub on the disc.
I built up mine with new bearings and packed it all with grease, then when I went to put the ring on, somehow they wouldn't fit over the disc.... not sure if it was a bad batch or a different part. Either way I had to clean the stupid thing out and take it back to the shop to be replaced. Second batch fitted fine

The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?
