muddyplugger Posted October 14, 2006 Share Posted October 14, 2006 Just as interest here is a photo of one of my (ex) front wheel bearings! The senario was.... driving happily along thinking I hadn't spent any money on repairs this month, when CRUNCH, defender pulled to the left and it felt I was driving on gravel. I had to drive another 40 miles to reach home, but it made it! (God knows how!) I am in the process of relacing the whole stub axle/swivel/half shalft/etc as: 1. The bearing replacement thing looked quite complicated. 2. A whole second hand unit was £50. (reliable source). 3. My Dad picked one up for me and wont let me give him any money for it. If it is of interest I am documenting the replacement of a stub axle thing etc. Would this be of use in the Tech Archive when I finish it? On a side note, how do the inner bearings receive their lubrication? Is it purely on physically lubricating them when built? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
