Strikes a nerve with me . Be careful ---VW's rear wheel will self destruct from a bearing failure. My 1982 Rabbit 1.6L NA did just that . The casting is very thin . I lost the Brake-drum ---Axle ---and some of the brake parts. Put the wheel on and spin it while you tighten nut as much as you can with fingers. For a first tightening I use a Visegrip , to put a bit of preload on. Works for me. Hagar. PS: Secret word is PRELOAD.
