    1.6 8v '98 mk4 Font driver side hub

    Hi all,

    The previous owner of my astra kindly over tightened a wheel bolt and screwed the thread whilst he was at it, I need to replace my front drivers hub (it's been running on 3 wheel bolts for a while but I've a few long trips coming up).

    My car is NON-ABS (manual box).

    I'm fairly good with spanners and an happy to do the job, but I'm having problems sourcing a part. I'm cheap and the cheapest part on ebay is a 'with ABS' part. Can I just use an ABS hub and remove the ABS sensor?

    I tried having a quick search but couldn't quite work out if it was going to work or not...

    This is the part I was looking at;

    Any advise much appreciated!

    Passenger side needs an ABS hub to run the speed sensor, however the drivers side on non-ABS doesn't but can use an ABS or non-ABS hub, just leave the ABS sensor disconnected.

    You'll get a new one for £15 more on eBay, not worth fitting a 2nd hand bearing if you ask me and the link above is for a 5-stud bearing and you need a 4-stud.

    NOT on this model

    the 1.6 8v takes its speedo drive from the gearbox on non ABS models so in this case the same hub (ie bog standard no ABS/speedo plug) is used on both left and right wheels


    Although you may have already sussed out a new part, just a bit of info in case u need to replace the NS one at some point in the future
