I realized the axle stub 1J0501117B measurement I gave previous post was wrong; 1.18" is actually 1.81" (I must be dyslexic). A 1.81" part fits inside a 1.785" part - not likely.
The last couple days drove (drove the Corolla) the family up to Sequoia national forest here in California. I would strongly suggest if you visit California to place the Sequoia national forest on your itinerary.
My suspicion is the bearing/ hub is out of tolerance. All the install procedures I've seen explain the new bearing/ hub slips onto the axle with out force or tools.
I do not have the Bentley procedure on this install; would really like to find out what the Bentley procedure is. If the Bentley procedure also describes a slip fit, then the bearing/ hub is out of tolerance. I will be shopping for a VW part, or purchase from the VW dealer
If you have the Bentley rear bearing/ hub install instructions would love to see it
