    Hi Spike,

    I was looking through the forum for help with something and saw that you'd had the problem too so I hoped you could help.

    While trying to take off my brake calipers I managed to strip the threads in the wheel bearing housing..nightmare. I saw that you'd had the same issue a few years back, and that you picked up a built up housing and bearing assembly from Audi. I wasn't sure from your message, did you carry out the work yourself? What sort of price would I be looking at?

    Thanks a lot
    Michael

  5. Hi, there are only 2 club members who can help.
