? for those who have replaced wheel bearings

Just getting into my front and rear bearings, and i noticed that the spacer between the bearings (not sure what the technical term is) seems to move around when i stick my finger in there and put pressure up or down. I was under the impression that this was not supposed to move? If thats normal can i pound the bearings out one side at a time or does it not move left to right?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, i've called a stop to the job ATM untill i can get an answer.

I think the spacer your refering to is more of an axle guide. Either way, it should be captured fairly snug. If you have to push it, to move it, no big deal. If it's just loose, then you should press your bearings tighter IMO.

I take it you are removing your bearings? If so, it doesn't matter. Just get it lined up when you press them back in.

No problem. I do have a complete set of NSK non-contact sealed bearings that I'm probably not going to use.

PM me if you need a set.

If I could add to this topic with a question...

Where is a great place to buy hybrid bearings from for an 05? I'm drawing blank on my searches.

I am not sure what a hybrid bearing is, but allballsracing.com makes all kinds of bearings, you could give them i shot, and thanks for the replies. I can safely say i slept a little better last night knowing everything is OK w/ the rims.

Google World Wide Bearings, they have hybrids and are motorcycle specialists.

If that beautifully light spacer did not move....then how would you get the bearing out?
The spacer is there purely to set a distance between the two bearings.
