MK1 Standard Connecting Rod Bearing

Item #: 1600

Connecting Rod Bearing Set: 1.5L, 1.6L, 1.7L, Gas & 1.5 Diesel - Standard Size

VW connecting rod bearing. Connecting rod bearings support the connecting rods where they meet the crankshaft. Cold starts, and driving longer between oil changes accelerates wear on your Volkswagen’s rod bearings. If you are planning on taking the pistons out, changing the rod and crankshaft bearings at the same time will save you labor later.

Do-it-Yourself Tip

While replacing the VW connecting rod bearings, do the main bearings at the same time. Installing old scarred bearings will lead to engine failure later. You may want to consider a complete engine rebuild kit; then you will have all the parts needed to put your Volkswagen back together properly.
