Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual / Running gear, axles, steering / Wheels, tyres, axle align / Wheels, tyres / Wheel change, protecting wheel centring seat against corrosion

Applies to alloy and steel wheels
When changing a wheel, wheel centring seat should be waxed using wax spray to prevent corrosion between wheel centring seat and wheel rim → Electronic Parts Catalogue “ETKA”.
–  Remove wheel.
–  Thoroughly clean wheel centring seat on wheel hub and the centring ring of the wheel rim.
   
–  Apply wax to centring area -arrow- with a brush.
Ensure that only centring ring -arrow- but not contact surface of wheel rim has been waxed. Otherwise, the brakes will be soiled, which would reduce the braking efficiency.

Wheel bolts, contact surfaces of wheel hub and wheel rim and wheel hub threads must not be waxed. Never treat wheel securing bolts with lubricant or corrosion protection materials!
