Ron :

The wheel bearing are service as the hub assenbly.

  1. Since the front wheel bearing cannot be adjusted, the front axle Hub retainer and washer must not be backed off after reaching the required torque of 300-400 Nm (221-295 ft. lbs.) during installation.

  2. The front axle hub retainer must be replaced with a new front axle wheel hub retainer whenever the front axle wheel hub retainer is backed off or removed. Never reuse the front axle wheel hub retainer.

  3. Impact-type tools must not be used to tighten the front axle wheel hub retainer or bearing damage will result.
