This is how to fit rear hub seals:-


1. When fitting the main oil seal, smear the inside of the oil seal with grease to prevent the seal from being burnt out before the gearbox oil gets there.

2. Also make sure that the shim that goes against the wheel bearing isn't sharp in any way !!

3. Wheel bearing cover bolts torque 43 lb ft.
