Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Raising wheel bearing assembly to unladen position (vehicles with coil springs), rear axle

Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual / Running gear, axles, steering / Technical data / Evaluating accident vehicles / Raising wheel bearing assembly to unladen position (vehicles with coil springs), rear axle

Raising wheel bearing assembly to unladen position (vehicles with coil springs), rear axle

Special tools and workshop equipment required
Engine and gearbox jack -V.A.G 1383 A-
Tensioning strap -T10038-
Support -T10149-

 
  Caution
All bolts on running gear components with bonded rubber bushes may be tightened only when the component is in the unladen position (normal position).
Bonded rubber bushes can be twisted only to a limited extent.
Axle components with bonded rubber bushes must therefore be brought to a position equivalent to the unladen (normal) position before being tightened.
Otherwise, the bonded rubber bush would be subject to torsion loading, shortening its service life.
To simulate this position on the lifting platform, raise the axle on one side using the engine and gearbox jack -V.A.G 1383 A- and support -T10149-.
   
Before the axle on one side is raised, both sides of the vehicle must be strapped to the lifting platform arms with tensioning straps -T10038-.
1 -  Tensioning strap -T10038-
  WARNING
If the vehicle is not strapped down, there is a danger that the vehicle will slip off the lifting platform!
–  Turn wheel hub until one of the wheel bolt holes is at the top.
–  Attach support -T10149- with a wheel bolt.
 

Raising wheel bearing assembly to unladen position (vehicles with coil springs), rear axle

Respective nuts and bolts may be tightened only when dimension -a- between the centre of wheel hub and edge of wheel housing has been attained.
The dimension -a- depends on the ride height of the installed running gear:

1) The type of running gear fitted to the vehicle is recorded on the vehicle data sticker. The running gear is identified by the PR number. Allocation of PR number to corresponding running gear → Chapter „Vehicle data sticker“.
–  Raise wheel bearing housing using engine and gearbox jack until dimension -a- is attained.
  WARNING
Do not lift or lower the vehicle while the engine/gearbox jack is under the vehicle.
Do not leave engine and gearbox jack under vehicle longer than necessary.
–  Tighten respective nuts and bolts.
–  Lower wheel bearing housing.
–  Pull engine and gearbox jack -V.A.G 1383 A- out from under vehicle.
–  Remove support -T10149-.
