NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically within 30 days IF we are able to get them. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

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!
