Fw: Jetta GLX Wheel Bearings

Well A guy from VW dealer in Puerto Rico told me that all begining from
jetta III 1993-1996 have wheel bearing problem, some broke at 10k and other
at 40-50k...some automatic VW have the cluck" problem when you make a full
turn and then corrected the sterring wheell..must probably the wheell
bearing....this problem is caused by a "play" inside of wheell bearing
housing!!! so VW replace the wheell bearing and put inside the wheell
bearing housing locktite(red) and the problem gone...
