Were it Russian rebels or Ukrainian secret forces that attacked Belgorod, a city in Russia near the Ukrainian border?
We do not know and will never know the exact details.

Fact is that Ukraine has a well-oiled and perfect working PR machine.
We do not have such a size of PR machine but bring our new arrivals and product updates every Friday.

Welcome to BBT News

More Brazilian specific Volkswagen models are popping up in Europe.
BBT likes to be a reliable parts supplier for them too.

We add the front windshield for Brasilia, because with a broken windshield you cannot drive.
They come in green tinted version with a blue sunshade.

To set the correct play on the swing axle of your drive line you must adjust the thickness of the large six corner gaskets on the transmission housing.
Golden easy rule is when  you lift axle tube bolted on transmission, it should sink slowly but steady back down under its own weight.

That’s without backing plate or brake drum mounted.
To reach the correct thickness to achieve this correct play we add now the 0.30mm thick gasket.

0.20mm thick gasket we supply already longer time HERE
For more transmission gaskets or gasket sets type 1415 into the search engine of our catalogues.
