5473 GEN2 Wheel Bearing Kit 72mm - for VAG

IEC Item(s) need Lubrication Product Video available

Generation II (GEN2) type wheel bearings, consist of a combined bearing and drive flange (hub), which cannot be separated, and therefore require special tools for both removal and fitting of new bearings.The Laser Tools range, consists of a number of individually sized kits, along with upgrade kits to allow for expansion of applications of different sized bearings, without always having to purchase complete new kits for each bearing size. By using clamshells and force plates/pins, the tool ensures that the load of insertion is taken only on the outer race of the bearing. The kits are also designed to allow for extraction of the relevant bearing, without removing the ABS Sensor.

  • Applications: Audi A2; Volkswagen Fox, Polo; Seat Ibiza; Skoda Fabia, Roomster. Vehicles equipped with PAS.
  • For removing and installing the wheel hubs and bearings on VAG models. The extraction adaptor (572-6) for GEN2 bearing kits has been redesigned to allow the extraction of the relevant bearings without removing the ABS sensor.
  • Suitable for 72mm diameter wheel bearings.
  • Replacement spares available - Force Screw (Part No. 0454), Pin (Part No. 0621), Thrust Bearing (Part No. 0662).
  • IMPORTANT: ensure the threaded bar & thrust bearing are well lubricated with molybdenum disulphide grease before use.

Press Release
Generation 2 Wheel Bearing Installer / Remover Kit

This new range of kits for Generation 2 wheel bearings makes light work of removing or installing this type of bearing, which cannot be separated from the drive flange assembly. Should a Generation 2 bearing need replacing, the whole drive flange assembly must be removed and a new assembly fitted.

By using clamp collars and force pegs the tool ensures that the loads of insertion are taken only on the outer race of the bearing and the innovative design of the kit ensures that the job is completed quickly and easily. Have a look at the product video on the Tool Connection’s Youtube channel: http://youtu.be/3SsbSYmngZY to see just how straightforward this job has become.

The range currently includes part no: 5473 (72mm for VAG), 5568 ( 78mm for Ford Focus II & C-Max), 5576 (62 & 66mm for VAG), 5582, (85mm for VAG), and the 5587 VAG Master Kit (62, 66, 72, 85mm).
