Your gearbox appears to be the 093 version.

Cheers. 110nm seems a lot, more than the subframe bolts! It is a chunky bolt though, so I'll go for it and keep my fingers crossed!

What size and grade bolt is it?
When I'm not sure I use this chart. Very useful. Saved a few snapped bolts for sure.

It's definitely grade 10:9 and pretty sure M12, although will double check. In which case on the chart 110nm should be fine. Chart has been saved, very useful that - cheers

Front suspension refresh has turned into a complete refurbishment! New shocks, wheel bearings, hubs, splash guards, calipers, all bushes etc.

I've got a questions about the wheel bearings... Does anyone know if the end with the recess/groove on the outer casing of the bearing (see pic) goes to the outer, or inner side of the housing? The car doesn't have ABS, but as there is only a recess on one side of the circumference, I presume they can't just go in either way?

Have asked this on the Facebook page as the website seemed to be down earlier... But I always seem to get much better answers on here, hence posting twice!

Thanks all.

Site has been up and down about 4 times today. Always database errors.

I replied elsewhere but for searching it's better on here. On a B2 the bearing inner race is symmetrical and not stepped so it doesn't matter which way round it goes.

You should have a pair of circlips in your kit. You'll probably only use one of them for the top before you press in the hub as your housing will likely have a stop for the bearing at the bottom.

Cheers Mike, much appreciated! Struts are all back together now ready to go on. Pic below, ignore the masking tape, just trying to not chip the new paint during installation... New gearbox mount, rebushed subframe and tie rod ends also on. Unfortunately the new ball joints I bought over a year ago are the wrong type, so I'll have to fit the old ones for now until I get the correct ones. Tomorrow I'll be fitting the wishbones, anti roll ball and droplinks, struts... Then it'll be time to fit the new calipers etc and see if the all new brake lines I fitted last year spring leaks or not!!
