we have to order.
I gave them a list of 12 items.
email, wait, phone, wait, phone again
then "Bob is on vacation. We dont have those parts. "

I called(773) 304-4411 and Bob in Chicago
sent bearings and seals at a very reasonable price.
I was NOT in a hurry.
The 224462 skirted seal fits the MK1 NA.
It was $1.90 :shock:
The 4904 inner seal that he sold me was also skirted and fits the Turbo.
It was $2.25 :shock:

The skirted seals seem to be better at keeping the dust out of the front wheel bearings because they butt up to the axle.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!
