oil in hub. Help!!!


Recommended Posts

Having just replaced the near side front wheel bearings, decided to have a look at the other side. Just taken off the the plastic hub cap and a nice runny oil grease mix came out. Not sure where to start with sorting this out so any help would be appreciated. :(

Thanks for your help. Happy it's normal. Now i know why the near side was not like it, there is next to no oil/grease in the swivel that side and full on off side. Just filled it up with ep90 for now. Taken it out for a drive, no leaks around seal but its weeping from the drain plug. Tried to tighten it, is there anything else i can do to stop it weeping from plug.

Another question just changed nearside bearing and still getting a knocking noise when turning hard right what should i be checking(this is the side that had nothing in swivel housing).

Sounds like the CV joint could be on it's way out, a clattering sound from the joint when on full lock is a common symptom.

That's a typical syptom of a worn CV joint. Even if they have a small amount of play in them they will click on full lock. It doesn't necessarily mean that they are about to destroy themselves though. Lack of oil/One Shot in the housing is not good though, and maybe the reason why it's worn.
