    Which type of hub?

    Morning All

    I'm just about to order a front o/s wheel bearing kit for my 1.6 sxi from Eurocarparts & there are 19 types,how do i know which one i need?

    My car is a 2004 1.6 sxi 3dr hatch,engine type z16xep

    All in know it is a 4 hole hub,does it have ABS etc?

    Only had the car a month and i'm not quite sure thats all,anything i need to look out for when replacing it?

    Thanks,Ian

    you will want the ABS one even if the car doesnt have ABS as it uses the plug for the speedo sensor

    take a look at this post:

    technically speaking its the NS that uses the plug for the speedo drive

    but just to be on safe side id order the one WITH ABS.... if u dont have it, then just leave the plug hanging at the rear (or cut off the plug if u wish)

    not sure on ECP prices but u can get a Continental (Conti-tech) one for £45 delivered

    you can replace it by leaving everything attached but my personal preference is to remove the entire steering knuckle then u can remove/refit the hub off the car - get plenty leverage on the bolts etc which may not be possible once attached
