Do the Type 2 rear outer wheel bearings need to be pressed into the drums with a hydraulic press? I'm ordering new rear drums/shoes/outer bearings, etc. and need to know what to expect. If the bearings need to be pressed in I may be better off purchasing locally and having a machine shop press them in?

 

cheers... and Cardinals are the Champs!!!!

Cliff,

 

I looked all over the net and came up blank. Then I looked through all my VW manuals and they only cover the Beetle. So...here's a link to changing a wheel bearing on a Beetle. It cover both standard and taper bearings, I hope that it helps:
