View Full Version : Front Axle Hub Assembly Order

06-20-2014, 03:03 PM
In my 1994 Celica BGB (FSM) toyota has a procedure for assembling a new wheel bearing, hub and lower ball joint in the steering knuckle. . . called FRONT AXLE HUB ASSEMBLY procedure.

They don't specify that you need to install an inner and outer wheel bearing oil seal, or in what order the oil seals are to be installed in relation to the other parts. The order of part installation is sometimes vip!

Does anyone know in what order these oil seals should be installed within the basic FRONT AXLE HUB ASSEMBLY procedure?


1) bearing and snap ring
2) dust cover
3) hub
4) lower ball joint
5) NEW dust deflector

And, is it problematic if you clean up and reinstall the old dust deflector, if it is in good condition?

No problem.

No problem.

You mean "no problem" reusing the dust deflector?

What about the installation order of the two oil seals?

I can't remember. Sorry.
