Field Remedy: 2272

Subject: Wheel bolts - Damages
Models: Engines: Option:
All All
Complaint: Damages of wheel bolts due to none compliance of working procedure.
Cause:
Production:

Remedy:

Before mounting the wheels the contact surfaces of the brake discs/
brake drums and the rims have to be cleaned with a steel brush. Both 
contact surfaces have to be free of grease, only around the centering 
it is allowed to slightly grease.

Before each mounting operation of the wheel bolts/nuts the cone has to 
be cleaned up with a clean cloth.  

Note:
Wheel bolts which require grease on the cone need to be replaced if 
they have be mounted several times without grease. It has to be taken 
care that no grease is on the bolt thread.
