Passat Sedan V6-3.6L (BLV) (2008)
Wheel Bearing: Procedures
Wheel Bearing, Lifting to Curb Weight Position
Special tools, testers and auxiliary items required
‹› Engine/transmission jack (V.A.G 1383 A)
‹› Tensioning strap (T10038)
‹› Mount (T10149)
‹› All bolts at suspension parts with bonded rubber bushings must always be tightened in curb weight position (unloaded condition).
Bonded rubber bearings can only be turned to a limited extent.
Parts with bonded rubber bearings must therefore be brought into a position that corresponds to the position in driving mode before being tightened
(curb weight position).
Otherwise, the bonded rubber bearing will be stressed, resulting in a shortened service life.
By raising appropriate suspension using (V.A.G 1383 A) and (T10149), this position can be simulated on the hoist.
Before appropriate suspension is raised, vehicle must be strapped on both sides to lift arms of hoist using (T10038).
If a vehicle is not secured, there is danger that the vehicle could slip off the lift!
Turn wheel hub far enough until one of the holes for wheel bolts is on top.
Install (T10149) with wheel bolt on wheel hub.
‹› Tightening of the respective bolts/nuts must then only occur after dimension - a - between the wheel hub center and the lower edge of wheel
housing has been attained.
Dimension - a - is dependent on standing height of installed suspension:
