Can someone suggest the inside diameter of the rear wheel bearing for an N/A (non turbo) Z32
Do you have the old bearing? The sizes are nominal in 5mm increments.
I replaced one about 12 months back and initially the hub and bearing were described as fitting an N/A Turned out it was for a TT so the car sat on the hoist at the garage for 10 days or so while I sourced another part. This time it was the bearing only so I had to get the old hub bronzed up and machined. I've got a noise in the alternate rear now and I don't want to pull it down and find its the wrong part again. The catalogue describes the part # (bearing only) as suitable for an zN/A but on the invoice it read TT. Very confusing. All I really have to go on is the inside diameter which I scoped out at plus/minus 42.75 mm.
The N/A and the TT bearing look the same but must be different because they go to a lot of trouble saying what it will and wont fit, so I'm basically trying to sus this out before I put a spanner on it and potentially have the existing wheel bearing fall apart in my hand.
