Well, after sitting on the JDK BBK for years (since the first GB), I finally got around to installing them. I decided that while I was at it I'd also replace the wheel bearings. I haven't posted on CS that much lately, so I figured I'd take pics and actually contribute something for a change :) Heres the how to:

Jack the car up, place it on jack stands, and remove the front wheels.

Remove the grease cap by prying it off with a flat tipped screwdriver:

Remove the nut cover and the cotter pin which holds it in place. It may help to tap it out with a hammer:

Remove the nut:

Remove the outer bearing washer:

Remove the outer bearing:

Now, remove the hub assembly from the spindle. It may slide out by hand, or you may need to use a 3 jaw puller to get it off. My driver's side came out smooth, but my passenger side needed to be pulled:

Once you get the hub off, flip it over and remove the dust seal. It's in there pretty good. Place a block on the disc for some leverage and use a large screwdriver to pry it out:

After you get the dust seal off, remove the inner bearing:

Clean the inside of the hub thoroughly. There may be some metal shavings, so make sure you get it good and clean:

Wow...excellent write up Christian...thanks for taking the time to do that. I'm going to sticky this as I'm sure you're not the only one who hasn't put their bbk. Thanks again.

I just sent you a message on MSN...please measure the brake lines you have. There is no reason they should be too short; but as we all know mistakes do happen. In regards to the bolts connecting the hat to the rotor this would be the first time I'm hearing from anyone that that bolts were too long. I have a few sets here in stock, after I get back from my appointment I will double check to see if I have the same issue.

In regards to a write up so far there isn't one. Joseph (White_MK_2) will be installing them on his MK2 in the next couple of weeks and said he's going to do a write up for me/us.

I'm sorry for the hassles you're having my friend :(.
Hey guys...for now I don't sell the adapters on their own. I will make an exception for Australians due to the high shipping fees for the other components. IF interested please send me an email...see my sig for that.
