Yes, also thought of wheel bearings. I might be in a similar situation, my VX also needs engine mounts probably ball joints(upper and lower)...similar MPG here...been a real pain.
I also have rear brake issues I'm going to get fixed this week.
Nice car addict. Mine had a lot of stuff done as well but don't look as good as your and costed little more then yours, so i would say you have a good deal going on here. So does your engine shake occasionally and vibrate which is why u wanna have engine mounts done?
btw....so because one wheel bearing will now get replaced does that mean i should expect the other one to fail soon as well or is that independent?
BTW I'm sure i'm the only VX owner in chi town ha ha ha
I just replaced both on mine. Since tires, shocks, etc. should be replaced in pairs, it seemed the way to go. I also couldn't tell which one was the bad one, if not both. So the good old one sits on a shelf in garage in case.
Wheel bearing is done....wow what a difference. What noise in VX?!!!! lol
I did test by smart meter and i'm getting anywhere between 75-78 dB driving 40-50mph. What u guys getting? Just curious. I'm find now but curious.
I will buy insulation material from local store and put it underneath covers in trunk go get some rear noise out. Front is much more difficult obviously.
addict i would say do ball joints first and wheel bearings you WILL know if they are bad right a way by noise. The clutch issue you have i would say to that first. I have a lot new mechanical parts so i should be good to go now.....knock on wood.
