    Grease for CV joint and bearing on hzj75

    LOL. I've had a few trips home as a 11 year old in the back of a police car. The words of "wait till I tell your dad" Used to strike the fear of God into the hearts of youngsters back in the day.

    New axle tube seal fitted, halfshaft popped back in. Smear with sealant, and bolt back up. Weights about 30 kg. Long overdue investment in a bigger torque wrench. Caliper bolts are 400nm, wheel nuts 350nm. Good time to fit the new handbrake actuator I've had under the bench for a while...

    Hub seal fitted, these are called a cassette seal, inner and outer sections are fixed and the seal rotates within itself. Deep groove bearing pressed onto the top gear. "wear ring" fitted and circlip. The wear ring is a good design, this is what the axle tube seal rides on, so no wear on the...

    Turn back over. The large roller bearing has a plastic "assembly ring". Keeps all of the rollers from rolling all over the workshop floor.. Taps in nicely again. Idiot! That bit of molly grease in one of the bolt holes, was actually a broken bolt... Luckily it came out pretty easy...

    Fitted small gear bearing and large gear bearing into housing. They go in nicely with a copper drift and gentle tapping. Turn the assembly over and press the large gear into the bearing, this was a little tricky tbh. That cavalier front wheel bearing I changed 20 years ago was just the...
