How can I tell if my wheel seals are faulty?

If your wheel seals are faulty, you may notice fluid or grease slowly leaking from the wheel hub. You may also hear a humming or grinding noise coming from the wheel when the vehicle is in motion.

Can faulty wheel seals cause damage?

Yes, if left unchecked, a faulty wheel seal can cause damage to the wheel hub, axle, or bearings. It can also cause fluid to leak out of the wheel, potentially leading to a lack of proper lubrication in the wheel hub.

How do you replace wheel seals?

To replace wheel seals, you will need to first remove the wheel from the vehicle. After that, you can remove the faulty wheel seal from the wheel hub. To install a new wheel seal, it is important to ensure that the seal is properly aligned with the wheel hub. Once the new seal is in place, you can reassemble the wheel and reinstall it on the vehicle.
