Does anyone know if the ABS ring on the front hut is fitted to the bearing or the hub face? My hub face has become badle cross threaded and needs replaced and all my local scrap yard had was a non Abs hub

What is cross threaded the threads for the brake pad housing? You might be able to helicoil it rather than replace it

Why not get a new one they are fairly cheap only about £30 at most and far safer than driving around with old incorrect parts fitted.

Theres quite a few on ebay for sensible money delivered.
What you going to do about having no speedo and no power steering possibly if you fit a non abs hub and of course if you have an accident and the police investigations van does an inspection of your crumpled wreckage looking for reasons for a fatality?

As for helicoiling the brakecaliper bracket then once again i have to say this is not a good recommendation and in my opinion should be made illegal as its too dependant on the operater rather than a set up machine,i certainly as an mot tester would be advising against this practise on such a life dependant component

The test is straightforward. If the bolt takes the stipulated torque, it's a good repair. If not, it's flooked.

It really is that simple.

Nowhere did I say it was brake side that was damaged, its the flange threads that hold the wheel nuts, but change of plan, stud conversion kit is on order and i will be able to get back on the road mid-week

Only thing to be aware of is that the FIAT stud conversion kits generally use the thread -- they're not like the ones you find on Toyotas and etc. which have a flange on one side and knurl to stop them turning.

Not sure what type Subaru use, but their studs are M12 x 1.25.
