A3 3.2 Quattro Bearing Carrier


Recommended Posts

Hoping someone can help me out.

I need to get a second hand hub/bearing carrier for my 2005 3.2 a3 n/s front. But I can't seem to find any that have come from a 3.2 quattro, loads from other models and engine sizes.

Just wondering if anyone knows what models/engines use the same parts so I can look for them.

Thanks in advance

Hello William,

Thanks for being in touch.

I wonder if you would be kind enough to fill in the story of why secondhand. 

Kind regards,

Gareth.

It could also be an aftermarket one. I need the bearing carrier/steering knuckle as well as the hub. It's just that the garage can only get the genuine part for £400. The part where it connects to the steering link is bent. They can't tell a part number from the one I've got as its rusted

Hello William,

So is there a problem finding a quality aftermarket one without the part number? 

Kind regards, 

Gareth. 

You could try TPS and ask them if they could send you a photo of the drawing to make sure you are enquiring about the correct part.

I'm going to a breakers tomorrow. I guess my question is

Do all A3 8P1 models share the same hub/bearing carrier/steering knuckle?

If they do then I don't have to search for one specifically from a 3.2 quattro a3.

Hope that makes sense.

Makes more sense to first sit at home and give TPS a ring William - don’t forget to ask for a copy of the drawing. 

Kind regards,

Gareth.
