wtw6600 tub bearing job
« on: November 12, 2013, 08:06:31 PM »
just got my first bearing job on the cabrio. how difficult of a job is this and what is everyone charging to do one of these? i see i need a tool that costs about $80-100 on ebay. i saw a video on you-tube but i take them with a grain of salt.

thanks

Just take your time on the first one then it will be like putting on couplings. If it's easy to get out I will take it to our shop if not I try to take it outside if possible. In most laundry rooms u know how cramped they are. Tool makes it very easy. Do @ least one a week.

I get about 2 of these a month, they're pretty quick once you get used to them.  One bit of advice.. before you go to put the adhesive on the gasket... make   sure you set down a paper towel, or a bit of cardboard.. so that when you finish applying the adhesive and your holding the gasket in one hand, and the open dripping tube of adhesive in the other with no easy way to get the cap back on you will have somewhere safe to set it down so it doesn't drip glue onto something you'll have to clean off...  :D

 It is easy.Be sure to grease the in side of the seal good or it will squeal.

thanks for all the advice and tips. job went smoothly. took about 45min to an hour. next one I think I'll be able to do it in half the time. I was able to pick up the top for about $55.00 half the price I seen online and eBay.
