OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is TEMPORARILY PAUSED to allow our warehouse staff time to catch up on the shipping and backorder backlog for already received orders in progress.

Our checkout system will re-open on Saturday January 29th at 3:00pm (MST)

You may want to copy and paste to save the items your cart (that includes links back to the items listings) in order to save them, just in case your browser does not. We hope that you will return when our online checkout resumes accepting new orders.

ORDER REQUESTS ARE BEING FULFILLED/SHIPPED as backordered items become available, but many popular products are delayed or in short supply. Restock ETAs for backordered items are often either unavailable, or unreliable. We continue to answer emails as best we can, but we are operating with less than half of our normal staff, so please be patient. Your understanding is appreciated while our company struggles to weather the challenges from Covid-19, and do what we still can to support the aircooled VW hobby.

Wheel Bearing, Front Inner, Roller Bearing, 1966-68 Type 1 and 1962-68 Type 3, 311-405-625
Wheel Bearing, Front Inner, Roller Bearing, 1966-68 Type 1 and 1962-68 Type 3, 311-405-625


 
Wheel Bearing, Front Inner, Roller Bearing, 1966-68 Type 1 and 1962-68 Type 3, 311-405-625 is a high quality tapered roller bearing. If a wheel bearing goes bad, be sure to replace BOTH BEARINGS, because metal from the first failure has ruined the 2nd one.

In 1968 VW changed the spindles on Beetles, Ghias, and Type 3s. This change required them to change the inner bearing, for the new (thicker) spindle shaft. The problem with this is that both early BJ and late BJ spindles are interchangeable, so you'll see many 66-68 Beetles and Ghias with late spindles (especially if changed over to disc brakes), and sometimes 68 and later Beetles with earlier spindles (usually due to an accident when a used spindle replaced the damaged one). Because of this it's important to check your old bearing inner diameter before ordering new ones.

The EARLY inner bearing fits 1.070" (27mm) spindles, while the LATE inner bearing fits the spindles that are approximately 1.130" (29mm). It's pretty important that you measure the bearing or your spindle to ensure you have to unexpected delays or headaches!
