I think that guy in the video has done this before...

I was surprised that the Audi didn't have a circlip holding the outer bearing race in the steering knuckle...

It's a tiny bit different on our cars...

Good luck!!

Yes it would be.

I have never used this kit, but done many front bearings. On the VW I use a modified (made to be heavier duty) slide hammer to get the bearing out

I would use a piece of wood and a heavy hammer to get it most of the way. as it gets flush with the knuckle, I use the old bearing race.

I would buy the kit if you want to do it 'easily', I think this kit helps get the hub back in as well, you have to be careful to support the inner race properly when putting the hub back in. I would love the kit, I just don't want to spend $200(they used to be $300+) Haven't done a wheel bearing on the jetta in over 3 years, so its not a tool that would get a lot of use for me anymore.

After you are successful in removal of the bearing in the hub, replacement is simple.
Put new bearing in freezer for an hour to shrink it then drop it into the hub.
