Hub Bearing Inspection

It is not necessary to remove any bearings for inspec-

replaced with new ones.
Turn each bearing in the hub back and forth [A] while
checking for plays, roughness, or binding.
If it is noisy, does not spin smoothly, or has any rough
spots, it must be replaced.
Examine the bearing seal [B] for tears or leakage.
If the seal is torn or is leaking, replace the bearing.
