I'm wondering if the $2000 wheel bearing is why the PO traded it in...

This sounds like a fun job to in the middle of winter. I do have two small propane heaters if you need them.

I'm paying the local shop (not dealer) to do it. He has a good reputation and works on quite a few TDIs.

What is so special about the wheel bearing job that cost so much? I think the dealer owner must need someone to pay his Bentley payment.

I guess I must be thinking of simple bearing jobs, remove wheel and caliper, pop the cap, take cotter pin, take spindle nut off, pull hub off, throw away bearings, remove races, press in new races, pack new bearings with grease, reassemble.

That pretty much sums it up, as far as I can tell. Not sure what kind of crack they're smoking.

It's a v10 TReg. Doesn't wheel bearing service require engine removal?

Congrats! Even though I don't know you well,the way you were talking about the T-Reg at the Ho5G I figured you were going to get one. Hey,you only live once,right? Is the Ford still in your driveway, or is that going up for sale? Have fun w/ your new toy......

The Ford is still in the driveway. It's getting sold as soon as we're done with January's traveling. It's been a good truck, but it's just been a driveway queen lately, so it's time to go. If anyone is interested, it just got new brake pads and rotors, one new caliper, and new tires.

The T91 is awesome, much better than the older remote and smaller on the key chain. You should have no problem picking one up on ebay.

Nice ride! My non tdicub buddy had a V10 and 2004 ALH

Neat. I've thought about one but can't get past the silliness of hauling myself and a 25 pound dog around in a 5,500 lb. truck. It's the cheap New Englander in me, I guess. But I think the T-Reg is great. Stealth status: no one knows how nice they are because they're VWs.

We've got three dog. Map mix, pug and yappy terrier thing. The jetta was not working. Thought about a golf wagon, but it felt smaller than the mkiv.

With the dogs in the back and a barrier to keep them there, it's nice.

Golf wagon is significantly larger than a MKIV, especially behind the front seats. But I can understand with three dogs.

No one (except me) has ever been that happy riding in the back seat of the Jetta Wagon. A Touareg would be far more accommodating. But I don't have anyone back there often these days.

Beautiful Truck, Lawson. Just hope you don't need cams anytime soon.
