Rear wheel bearing - SKF kit: VKBA 529

The following rear wheel bearing kit will fit the Elan and is available from most motor factors, priced £7.50 each (19/1/2008):

VW Jetta GL 1985-1998

VW Golf 1984-1992 (MK1), 1992-1998 (MK3)

However, the oil seal that comes with this kit is not the correct one.

The following oil seal is required:

GM part number 90217059 priced £9.52 each from Vauxhall dealer (19/1/2008)


Vauxhall Corsa 1983-1993 rear wheel bearing kit priced £7 each from local motor factors (19/1/2008)

I changed mine last week (07/05/2008) and found the seal in the VW kit to be a good fit in the hub. It appears to seal adequately, but I will keep an eye on it to make sure it keeps the grease in! Dave Pink

Timken SET1 and SET8 for inner and outer bearings respectively also work.
