Wheels: Service and Repair
Wheel Centering Seat, Protecting against Corrosion

Wheel Centering Seat, Protecting against Corrosion

Applies to Light-Alloy and Steel Wheels

‹› When a wheel is changed, the centering seat should be sprayed with wax spray (D 322 000 A2) in order to prevent corrosion between wheel

centering seat and rim.

-

Remove wheel.

-

Thoroughly clean the centering seat on the wheel hub and the centering surface on the rim.

-

Apply wax in area of centering - arrow - using a brush.

‹› Always make sure that only centering - arrow - is waxed and not rim contact surfaces. As a consequence, the brakes would become contaminated

while driving and thereby result in poor braking.

CAUTION!
Wheel bolts, contact surfaces of wheel/wheel hub and the threads in the wheel hubs must not have wax applied to them. Never apply
lubricants or anti-corrosion treatment to threads in wheel hubs.

-

Install wheel and tighten. Refer to => [ Wheel Bolt Tightening Specification ] See: Wheel Fastener/Specifications.
