Evening Chaps,

Some TWAAAAAAAAAAT at th egarage stripped the threads in my NSF hub so i need a new one!

Does anyone know if the R32 and 4MO ones are the same?

i think the actual hubs might be the same but the drive shafts are different, 4motions have a 30mm nut on them and the r32 ones have a long threaded bolt going into the driveshaft and as such the bearing part is different
Anyone Claify?

r32 hubs have a shaped thrust type washer pressed into the end for the bolt to sit against, the 4mo's are exactly the same minus the insert. Have fitted r32's to 4motion by way of knocking insert out but not the other way, but see no reason why not so long as you don't damage the insert knocking it out.

Hub carriers are different, hubs exactly the same with the insert, changed them too. the hub carriers fit to wishbones, track rod end etc. The hubs are pressed into the wheel bearings which in turn are first pressed into the hub carriers and secured by a circlip. Sorry to be picky

So i can strip both hubs and use the 4mo hub on the r32?

If you can get the insert out of the 32 hub with out damaging it and press it into the 4mo hub your good to go, mine came out easy but make sure you use new hub/driveshaft bolts. This is only my opinion!

Woow woow woow!

Looks like lots of confusion here (on my part too).

If I understand correctly mate they have cross threaded the wheel bolt holes? If so you can just get a new hub flange and wheel bearing pressed in to the hub. No need to mix and match 4mo/r32 parts.

Hub flange shouldn't cost that much new, and TBH I would get the garage that screwed it up to pay for the new hub flange and wheel bearing + fitting!

Ah one of the holes for the caliper carrier. New hub then :-(

You can use the 4motion hub flange in the R32 hub (like I did) but as far as I know you can't do the other way around unless you changed the balljoint and wishbone too.

Best thing to do is look up the hub part number in ETKA, ill take a look when I get home if you haven't found out before then.
