when changing the rear wheel bearings on my 64 beetle, i came upon a gasket/O ring that's about 4 inches in diameter and i didn't get one in my rebuild kit that fits this particular one. the O ring i got fits up in the bearing, or at least that's where i put it. does anyone know what i'm referring too?

Here's a page that will give you an exploded view of the rear wheel bearing.

Maybe you can figure it out from this.

Looks like there is a small o ring on the axle??

plus the large o ring goes onto the bearing housing to stop oil leaking past....

always use new o rings and coat them with oil...

from the Haynes manual...

that is with a swing rear axle which I believe you would have..

 

cheers
