I changed the right rear wheel today and when putting the jack under the axle I noticed this wet patch where the axle and wheel hub is connected. Should I be worried about it or could I just leave it but keep an eye on it.

Hi Ben

i would be can only be the oil seal that has started leaking , on some Toyota axles this washes out the grease in bearing and can cause bearing to fail ,for instance on the Prado l have this is the case. Not to sure if Hilux has the same set up (semi floating axle) . i would only use genuine Toyota replacement seals ,the aftermarket ones are know to fail very quickly

Agree with Martin. Replace your oil seel with genuine Toyota one.

Ek het ook so soortgelyke probleem. Moet die bearings afkom om die seels te vervang of kan mens net die seels vervang. Ry ń 2.7 2004 model. Is dit maklik om dit self te doen. Dankie.

Ek sien nou wat julle altyd so praat, van Toyota wat mens so beroof. 2 x Bearings vir R2450.00 terwyl Midas vra net R480.00 vir twee. So met ander woorde net die boksie met Toyota se naam op kos dus R1970.00.
Vir die 4 olieseëls vra hulle maar net R780.00. Ek het maar op Martin se woord gegaan om die oorspronklike seëls maar by Toyota te gaan koop.
Wat stel julle ouens voor, watter brand kan mens maar vertrou by Midas of Autozone.
Dankie.

Hennie maak nie saak by wie jy koop nie. Koop net Timken of NSK bearings. Het jy pryse by Bearing man (BMG) gekry?

Of SKF of Koyo. N1 4x4 sal ook hê/kan bestel. Hulle verkoop egte onderdele en daai seëls gaan omtrent die helfte goedkoper wees by hulle.

Sterkte, het nog nie self gedoen nie, maar ek hoor altyd die ouens praat van dit is nie maklik om daai bearings af te kry en jy moet passop dat jy nie die ABS ring breek in die proses nie.

Hallo Ben, Dit is wat ek die naweek gedoen het. Ek het ook so by Februarie gesien soos joune op die fotos en gedog ek sal dit maar net dophou. Maar na Martin se kommentaar het ek maar besluit ek moet die bearings vervang aangesien ek met skoolvakansie Suidwes toe gaan en was glad nie lus om iewers langs die pad te sukkel nie.
Dit is nadat ek die as uitgehaal het, kyk wat is die toestand van die bearings en seels. Roes en water.

Hallo Louis, het my bearings by N1 4x4 gekry en gedink dis alles. Ek het eers Saterdagmiddag die pakkie oopgemaak en gesien daar is nie retainer rings in nie. was verplig om by Autozone te koop net om die retainer rings te kan hê. N1 4x4 was in elke geval toe. Kon nie wag tot Maandag nie.
Dis die eerste keer wat ek so iets aangepak het en het toe nie geweet daar moet retainer rings wees nie.

Naand Hennie, dankie vir die terugvoer. Ek het dit ook nog nie self gedoen nie so sal dit maar na Toyota toe vat. Sal sien wat kwoteer hulle my. :siffler: Het jy albei kante gedoen of net die een wat natgesweet is?

Ons ry Aug Noord Kaap toe so sal dit liewers doen as probleme langs die pad optel :slap:

Groete.

Hi Ben. Yes, have it seen to before your trip - chances are that if it is going to fail, it will do so on a long trip. It might just be the seal, but if there has been water ingress and it looks anything like Hennie's, it will fail you.

Good luck. :winkx:

Yes Ben I had done both wheels, better safe now than sorry later. I had lot of tools at home and it was not easy to take the bearing out. The assembling job was easy because I had a press, but it is not something you can take it with you. Do it before you go on your trip.

Ek sien hier is nou nie baie Kapenaars wat op hierdie blad was nie so sal op die Community Forum ook pos. My vraag is na wie kan ek my Toyota hier in Durbanville neem om die seëls te vervang. Wil nie na Toyota garage gaan omdat hulle my 'n arm en been gaan vra.
Dankie,
