There is a rather easy solution that I have found. I took a good size
washer, and ground it down to thee ID of the spindle. Place it over the
bearing and put it in a press... or vice (would be tough) hydraulic jack
etc... This requires taking it out of course.... but that isnt too tough
either. The other is to buy the VW tool that removes them while still
on the car. Ita not cheap, but cheaper than buying new hubs!
If anyone has this tool.... CAN I BORROW IT!!!!!!!!! (rent?!)
