    5 stud front hub for VR6
    Available at Euro Car Parts, GSF, Ebay, and possibly VW Heritage / Classic Parts.

    Below are the only wheel / bearing hub housings that VW Classic Parts stock for the Corrado I believe.

    I'm pretty sure Passat VR6 knuckles are the same as well.

    Can you not get a second hand pair and refurb them ?.

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    The thing I've noticed with my front wheel hub housings, mainly the N/S/F as that was the one I had a problem with, the old wheel bearing was shot, so replaced with new one only to find that when pressing the new bearing in, it went straight in with out any real resistance, so pressed the new bearing out and checked everything, came to the conclusion that the outer case of bearing was able to spin very slightly, where it should be a nice snug fit against the inner wall of the wheel hub housing.
    I used some bearing lock on the outer case area of bearing, so it wouldn't spin like before, only the centre of bearing would spin like it should.
    If my bearing goes again in the future then I'll have to purchase new wheel hub housings, as possibly you're only ment to use these wheel hub housings once or maybe twice max ?
    This will be the second time that I've seen an issue with some of these VW hub housings, one was on my Corrado and the other was on a work colleagues MK3 Golf some years ago now.

    Just food for thought.

    I wanna re-new everything underneath really Rob which is a pain when the price of these housings is quite a lot,£250 plus a side, the new bearings are too loose so I've no choice but to get new ones really

    Yeah so really depends how many times the bearings have been replaced, like I say you might get away with using some bearing lock like I did, but other then that possibly looks like you might need new wheel hub housings ?
