How to install seal - front wheel bearing
Posted 23 April 2009 - 03:34 PM
Analyze what I'm going to do:
Smear some extra grease in there (I wiped a bunch out) and knock the new seal in with a large socket.
How's that sound?

my sockets won't be big enough and I don't have one of those oil filter wrenches. this is for a friend and i'm hoping to get him his car back on the road tomorrow.....anything else I could use to seat this?
apparently maybe an old oil filter may work if i can keep it from loosing oil and smashing to pieces!!!!

The hardest part actually was getting the old seal out. The new one went in prety easy. Since it is to seal against the dust seal on the axle I woudln't drive any further than the orignla was in there. hehe my pics are all old, I just keep reusing the same ones over and over I haven't had new pics in at least a year.

i have to pick the seal up tomorrow from the parts store i'll see if they have anything close to that size.
glad to hear it's easy, this one was a bear to get out too.
