i have on order my new hub and bearing...my question is, should i have the bearing pressed on the hub first? or should i disassemble everything and then have it pressed on. this would be my first time fixing this problem... i'm just going off the mkiv tech guide...basically, here's my rundown...disassemble brakes/suspension/axle/control arms, then pull apart the hub from the carrier, remove inner/outer seals and snap ring, and install the reverse order...sounds simple enough:ugh2: any tips would be helpful....TIA

so by the way ....i just did this last weekend except i purchased both rear carriers so i did not have to go threw the bs of pressing shit in and out.

You need to press the bearing into the carrier first. Install the snap ring and seal. Then press your hub in. Install the inner seal afterwards and make sure you torque the axle nut to spec to avoid future bearing problems.

Sure no problem.
The exact order you would do this is...
1. press the bearing in the carrier
2. install snap ring and outer seal
3. press hub in to bearing
4. flip the carrier over and press in the inner bearing race onto the hub (you will understand what i mean once you get to this point. The inner race will not stay inside the bearing when the hub is being pressed in)
5. install inner seal

Here's a picture of one i did awhile ago. This would be after step 2 in my list. This is how it will look like when your ready to press the hub in.

thx for all the tips guys! i finished the install today...everything went smoothly except the lower ball joint...couldn't get it off...so i just ended up taking off the whole lower control arm..other than that it was pretty easy and straight forward.
