Passat alloy wishbones to mk5 hubs
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:00:32 PM »
Hi guys..

As some of you may know I'm currently having the Passat alloy hubs along with the Passat alloy wishbones.. But to my surprise this setup will not fit with the Vagbremtechnic adapter kit that allow me to fit the Porsche 986/987 calipers...

checked the Vagbremtechnic website and the kit that I've bought for the mk5 has the same item number as the one they state will fit the Passat 3C/B6?


Anyway, guess I'll have to swap back to the standard mk5 front hubs to make this setup fit - Do I have to swap out the alloy wishbones to or can I use these with the stock mk5 hubs?

Well don't continue hunting the hubs before I get an answer from Mike at Vagbremtechnic about this mate.  :chicken:
Was surprised aswell that this is not fitting together.

So guess it has to be the Audi TT wishbones, hubs and steering rack with the Audi TT adapterkit from vagbremtechninc since these have a different design and should fit?  :confused:

Guessed having the Passat wishbones and hubs wouldn't give any complications since the mk5 adapter kit is the same for the passat :sad1:

Talked to Mike at vagbremtechnic about this, and he have ordered a Passat alloy front wheel hub to see how to solve this problem in the future.  :congrats:

Anyway, guess I'll have to change my setup to stock mk5 hubs and alloy wishbones.. I think it wont be an issue sine the track from the passat alloy hubs and wishbones only gives 2-3 mm more at each front wheel, where the Audi TT gives 22-23mm more each front wheel

I'm fitting the Passat wishbones and hubs and my Vagbrem adapters fit fine. I'll try to dig out the part numbers so you can make a comparison.

The current revisions of the Passat hubs are 3C0407253F and 3C0407254F.

I bought a set of the cancelled revisions (3C0407257F and 3C0407258F), which I didn't know at the time because the ebay titles specified the current revisions. I have the Vagbremtechnic kit for the 4 pot Brembo calipers and 362 mm AP discs still in boxes waiting to be fitted.

just checked my ebay history and my left one has this partnumber :

VW Passat 3C Achsschenkel Radlager vorne links 3C0407253F

there isn't partnumber in the ebay topic for the right one, but they were from the same car

hm.. Seems odd, since the 3C0 407 257 F replacement is 3C0 407 253 F when you check ETKA.

Do you adapters fit your alloy hubs?

I still haven't opened the Vagbremtechnic package. I suppose they fit since this kit has been used by many S3 and Cupra owners.

Left the new calipers to get painted red with GTI letters today at the painter. Hope to have updates soon. What's that disc size?
