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 => [ Tightening Specification for Mounting Wheels ] See: Wheel Fastener/Specifications/Tightening
Specification For Mounting Wheels.
