Schaeffler adds wheel bearing training video

Published:  28 September, 2020

Schaeffler’s REPXPERT workshop support programme has been bolstered with a new video for front and rear wheel bearing replacement on a 2012 Ford Fiesta.

Commenting on the new video, Schaeffler Marketing and Digital Media Executive Tony Yates said: “With around two million Ford Fiesta and Ka models that use these bearings on the UK’s roads, this should be a popular repair for any independent workshop, so this additional resource to the REPXPERT portal provides another really useful video for mechanics.”

The Front wheel requires a press to remove the Generation 1 type wheel bearing before inserting the new unit into the hub assembly, and features an ABS encoder ring incorporated into the bearing. In contrast, the rear wheel bearing is a Generation 3 hub unit, which is a complete bolt-on module incorporating the mounting plate, bearing, wheel flange and ABS encoder.

Tony added: “It is worth reinforcing the message that everything on the REPXPERT site is completely free, with mechanics just needing to enter their workshop details and to then validate their registration after receiving a confirmation email. They will then become a REPXPERT member, with all the privileges and opportunities this provides.”
