not touch the ground.
Remove the oil seals and circlips.

prevent contamination of the bearings.

Lubricate them and install them using the bearing driver
set [B] so that the marked or shielded sides face out.
Press in the bearings until they are bottomed.

Hub Bearing Inspection

It is not necessary to remove any bearings for inspec-
tion. If any bearings are removed, they will need to be
replaced with new ones.
Spin [A] it by hand to check its condition.
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.
