I recently tightend my front wheel bearings. The right side is fine but the left side seems to be leaking a little of the grease. Its getting flung all over the wheels. I checked the cap and it seems to be on very tight. What could be causing this. Could i have over torqued them.?

There is a seal on the back of the rotor that seals onto the spindle, it could be leaking. Also if the grease is being thrown a lot it has brobably broken down and is on the thin side. Might be a good idea to clean and repack them with new seals.

Be careful in tightening the large nut to the barrings and only take up the slack. I f you get it too tight you will burn up the barring. Gary Ptln
