[Vwdiesel] When it rains...

I had a bad casting on a VW spindle which caused me to go through a bearing
every 30k miles., until I caught on.  This is different, but I have not
sashayed the car side to side.  Tommorrow, if the snow is not too bad, I'll 
do just that.

Wheel bearings are easy, and I actually have a couple on hand.

That doesn't explain the vibration on the clutch pedal.  Kinda of a irregular
vibe...not like a VW (or at least the one's I've owned).
