Default Anyone got a hub?

Afternoon

I'm looking for a Near Side Front hub carrier for my S8 - Prestige don't have one at present. Anyone got one they are keen to sell?

Part number 4D0407257T (I think!)

Thanks

Mossy

Steel for 20" wheels and Brembo calipers?

How have you managed to break one of those?

The carrier is absolutely fine. Used a different mechanic for some suspension work and he managed to lose the insert where the NSF lower arm bolts in at the rear. Utter nightmare. Of course he has gone AWOL now and need to replace as cannot find anyone with (or willing to sell me the insert). It's not listed with a part number as part of the hub itself so I am screwed.

Ah so aluminium uprights with the steel inserts for the balljoint tapers.

Unfortunately its a common mistake where the insert comes out with the arm which then goes in the bin. Its not available as a separate part so you have to kill a good upright just to get the insert, and as you have found, those uprights are becoming extremely scarce now.

The A6 and A4 use a similar system, but I've never actually checked if the inserts are the same or compatible. I will have a look tomorrow
