    Pressing in W124 estate rear bearings & hubs

    I need advice with installing bearings into 124 estate rear hubs. All parts ready on the bench. Do I press in the bearings into the hub carrier then the hub into the installed bearing? This seems the logical way to do it but just wanted to check before I started... The hub carrier is...

    Front Wheel Hubs

    Hello Everyone, I have a C230K W203. So far I had to replace front suspension and wheel bearings last week, but I am still getting a knocking on the left hand side front wheel. I jacked it up and there is some play moving the wheel back and forth. It was there before I got the bearings replaced...

    SEC Wheel Hubs

    Does anyone know if there is a difference between SEC and SEL front wheel hubs. The previous owner of my SEC had the spigots machined to fit the modern after market wheels that were on it and now, even when using the wheel centring tool, I can't get them centred and have an imbalance at speed...

    Wanted - pair of rear hubs for w124 estate

    new hubs or skim old ones?

    A few weeks ago I mentioned I had acquired some e500 wheels (8J x 16 et34). They are shod with the specified tyres 225/55's and are a bit wide in the arches. So my question is rather than mess with the body work can I either 1. have the hubs "skimmed" so the tyres fit further within the...

    Rusty looking hubs

    Folks, As you can probably guess I'm spending some quality time and giving my car some well needed TLC! The hubs of the car (all 4 wheels) are looking rather rusty, a kind of dull brown which is better than the bright orange they were 2 months ago. I know that these can be painted by a...

    Linking hubs - Crossover needed?

    Going from a wireless/wired hub (Belkin FS07632-4) to a wired hub (NET-LYNX SW8055SX-C)and then on to another wired hub (Netgear DS108) Why is there something in the back of my mind that the connecting cables need to be crossover? I have cable, ends and a crimp tool so easy for me to do

    USB Hubs:(

    We have tried adding a PCMIA card hub to my laptop and the hard drive attached to wont start to copy then crash. we also added 4 port hubs to two other computers (via the existing USB port) and they didnt work either. Do USB ports need some special magic to actually work??

    Rusty hubs and calipers

    The look of my wheels tend to be spoilt by the rusty looking disc calipers and hubs. I was thinking about a quick coat of heat resistant black paint. What do you think and would it look really naff if I sprayed the calipers silver? I don't want it to look like a boy racer's car. :)
