Gavrik in a way you are lucky --- I have all the parts right here in my hand.
So any measurement is no problem . Let us know if the big nut was tight when
the scraping sound was heard. Remember it is a split bearing ---even a loose
nut will be a wiggle. So grab the wheel and really give it a test for slop.
When I asked for more info it was to find out if you have a good place to work
on it.Was it on the car ? etc. Did someone use a standard circlip for holding
bearing in place.?--- I had a nut on the left front come loose in town one day,
limped home with a lot of scraping sounds. (no damage) (1980 Rabbit 300 dollar
Canadian special) --- now looking back ? it was worth every dollar in parts.
PS: Remember the rubber booth protects the joint. The best clamps I have seen so
far are real All Stainless mini clamps. They can be tightened with a 1/4 inch drive socket.
