I need to replace one of my front hubs as it keeps on knackering my wheel bearings, are all mk 1 hubs the same as my RSI?
no, you need to check the spacing between the bolts that attach the strut to the hub. IIRC the RSi is 54mm, but I would double check that as I'm not totally sure. Valvers come with 54mm bolt spacing but the 1.2s/1.4s can come with either 52mm or 54mm so you really need to have that check to make sure it matches whatever you have.
If a wheel bearing is left broken for too long it can knacker the hub, where the bit of the hub are pressed together, this can wear down to the point where they just come apart. If that happens you need a new hub.
