Wheel Hub Bearing Unit Removal:
Using the 08125500 kit makes it possible to safely remove the old unit in-situ. It is critical that the old unit is removed at the correct angle, to prevent damage to the housing and the Sykes-Pickavant 08125500 kit ensures the correct angle for removal.
Wheel Hub Bearing Installation:
It is necessary to ensure that there is no damage to the locking ring when fitting new units into the bearing housing. If the locking ring becomes damaged, there is a high risk that the bearing and hub will become separated, causing premature failure. The 08125500 kit ensures that the locking ring will not become damaged.
NOTE: The Wheel Hub Unit MUST
be pushed on the outer bearing ring, behind the locking crown. Using a press on the centre flange
will cause premature bearing failure, or destroy the bearing whilst installing.
NOTE: BEFORE USING THE TOOL IT IS RECOMMENDED TO REMOVE THE ABS SENSOR
