Ball joint 15 or 17 mm?

Post

Back to the top
So the ball joints for mk1 come in two sizes, 15mm or 17 mm which is the diameter of the stud. Mine's from '76 so 15 mm originally, but does anyone know if the wheel bearing housing on mine will take 17mm guide joints? Thanks

I don't think it will, I tried to fit the bigger ball joint to my 78 Scirocco and it did not fit to the wheel bearing housing.
