Default seals

My driver's side rear wheel bearing sounds like groaning death metal. Seems like it's time for me to again embark on the long journey to hell for the 3rd time in my Impreza-owning career--the hell that is rear-bearing replacement without the proper tools.

Anyway, I want to be 100% certain that I install the three black nylon/plastic seals in their proper locations (not totally confident in where they are from the last install). Can anyone help me out with a diagram or some very specific explanation of where each distinct seal is supposed to be seated?

Let me sort through some pictures we took during the last set we installed and see if I can find some useful ones of the seals.

If they are pressed incorrectly they can be torn up very easy.

We can get the bearing tools, but honestly, a 20 ton press is way cheaper and has many more uses. If you really want the factory style tools, shoot us a PM and we'll get you a price.

It would be a good thing to note that we should be checking the condition of the hub before putting the new inner races on. Specifically looking for fretting, circumferal grooves, hazing/chafing, gouges etc.....

Technicians note that if the inner race does not come out with the hub, the hub should be replaced.

From what I've read about the Koyo bearings, they have a lower axial limit than OEM NTN bearings. Not sure if this PN is the same as the Koyo number I was reading about, but it does bear mentioning.


All that said, I need a kit for the Brighton. Email is following soon!

Jay, your bearing is on the way, and you've got an email with a delivery confirmation number.

Everyone will get a chance to really find out about these bearings now that Jay is putting one on his FSP car!
