- Turn the wheel hub, until the wheel bolt hole is on top.

  Caution

Risk of destroying the wheel bearing when installing the wheel bolt.

So that the installed wheel bolt cannot push against the wheel bearing, it (the bolt) must be installed with a washer inserted in between.

- Install the Engine/Gearbox Jack Adapter - Wheel Hub Support -T10149- with a wheel bolt -2- and inserted washer -1- on the wheel hub.

- Slightly lift the wheel bearing housing using the Engine/Gearbox Jack Adapter - Wheel Hub Support -T10149- with the Engine and Gearbox Jack -VAS6931- this allows the threaded connections to easily separate.

  WARNING

Risk of accident!

  • Do not lift or lower the vehicle when the Engine and Gearbox Jack is under the vehicle.
  • Do not leave the Engine and Gearbox Jack under the vehicle any longer than necessary.
