Does anyone know what this part is called so I can maybe find one. I found an exploded diagram on an online manual but the picture is a bit rubbish & if I zoom in the picture quality gets ecen worse so you can't read the numbers to tie items up with the given key. I really need to find onr of these asap before my wheel falls off Sad

Are you looking at page SS-690? If so, have a look at page SS-696 - do you see the part you need on both pages, maybe No. 15 on 696, "steering articulation". I'd call it a wheel-hub, or hub for short. I'm sure Woody or HJ can help you out.

Out of interest, what's happened to yours? Your van is comparatively recent, and I've not heard of someone having to replace one before.

Yes I was looking at 690 & have now looked at 690 & it looks like it is the steering articulation. My local mechanic drew me a rough sketch of what it looked like so that certainly seems to it. I needed a names for it, he thought it maybe called a hub too. Not sure what happened to it, I got an advisory on the mot this week for the wheel bearing but it seems the bit it fits in is worn & sloppy. The mechanic thinks that maybe at sometime the bearing seized & someone has carried on trying to drive it. I got the van at the end of august, it had belonged to a hotel in the lake district & you know how it is sometimes with vehicles like that the people driving them don't give a damn, as it's not theirs. It had no end on the exhaust when I got it, it just finished at the box and the sun visor has been used for writing their jobs to do list on. Managed to get some of that off but not all of it. Lucky my mot came up not too long after I got it I guess. I have woodys phone number so shall give him a call this evening. I don't have a number for HJ though. Thanks for your help

You're welcome. Speak to him nicely and he might throw a cleaner visor in too!

Lol ! I just got off the phone to him. He will check first thing but he doesn't think he has a nearside one off a van at the mo only offside ones. Seems nearside ones are in demand. I will call him again later on tomorrow morning to see if he does have one off a van. The next option will be to put in my details on those online breakers I think see if I can locate one somewhere. I have asked this evening on the post that HJ has up about the van he is scraping so maybe he may have one

Yes Penny did ring me last night Matt about a hub assembly and I have never heard of them being called " an Articulation Unit"  before - -  have  you??  

I did  say that I thought I only had offside ones on the shelf as its always  nearside ones that are ask for.  
Obviously Hi-Jet owners are taking your advice Matt and going kerb crawling and cocaine taking as its nearly always the nearside that's asked for -  hitting the kerb and all the potholes.

But that certainly can't be the answer in Penny's case can it??  
Dont even go there Logi you Old Perve!! Embarassed

I wondered why my partner James always wants to take my van instead of his own car if he goes out in the evenings. His excuse was he would lose his parking space on the road & would end up parked up streets away but my van has designated parking. He must be out kerb crawling Smile

I take it Highly Jetted is Matt from reading your post Woody ? You mentioned Matt last night ( that sounds a bit like we had a secret liason last night Woody )

If this is to do with wheel bearings, might it come under the recall notices? If so, the fix might be free.

Yes it is the hub/casing the wheel bearing goes in. How would I find out about recall notices ? Would a recall cover something that is 7 years old ?

It certainly did with the Propshafts. And recently the Petrol Tanks I believe.

I don't think any piaggio porters were recalled.

They are not even on the VOSA list http://www.dft.gov.uk/vosa/apps/recalls/default.asp

I've driven old dogs all my life Logi. Never had a really nice car like some of the lovely beasts you have owned.
I think the newest car I have ever owned was three years old when I was in my twenties.
I certainly wouldn't ever buy a new car even though my best mate Stan who died on October 17th left me a six figure legacy.

I will stick with playing with Hi-Jets but will have some spare dosh to build a nice quick 1600 lump.
Will be nice to just play at Hi-Jets instead of having to work at them and I have had another surprise this week. Another pension I had completely forgotten about so got three pensions to come in March.

Never thought I would WANT to retire but I am damn well going to now.
I
But panic ye not all of you. I WILL STILL KEEP THE SPARES COMING FOR FORUM MEMBERS
Just wish I could find a source of headlights for everyone though.

I am perfectly aware of to what it refers Logi. English Language was my best subject in my Education.
I just love the banter that you and I share.
Really livens up the Forum. But if I ever take it too far and cross the line please say so.

What a rip off. £150.!! UNBELIEVABLE.  Matt and I from  memory charge  £30 and £45  for a complete hub assembly with Flange and disc.
Like Matt I have got numerous offside assemblies as I first said on Friday when we first spoke.
Time to put up prices it seems. Laughing Laughing

Good point Logi. I didn't see the "new" bit. In which case I would expect it to be a lot more than that.
Bearing Carrier, Bearings, Splined Stub Axle, Drive Flange, 4 Wheel Studs, Centre Nut and Washer all new for £150. I would be surprised at Daihatsu prices when you apply Daihatsu Price Structuring logic.
Which seems to be think of a £Number and Quadruple it then add 100%.
