plastic trim removal tools for chipping and Brakekleen is the ticket. took less than an hour.
This can’t be good.
well I see why the bearing spun on the shaft. Looks like it would’ve been a bumpy ride for the bearing.
I don’t think the picture shows it very well, but the outside bearing race doesn’t look like it was pressed all the way in. because there’s about a 3/32nd of an inch lip between the race and the housing.
What to do…
Of course the Go Pro focused on everything BUT what I wanted it to focus on - the shaft on the hub. I’m thinking this isn’t usable. Does anyone know what the serviceable measurements are? I didn’t see anything in the manual.
Now this makes sense.
I know the proper thing to do is to replace both pieces. I’m a bit limited on cash. and I"m trying to cobble something together to drive to the big Jag Festival in California at the end of the month.

I posted my first video on youtube - using a can of compressed air (well not air, but CO2) to remove the seal retainer. check it out.
Please leave comments - on what I can do to improve my channel. My plan is to have video all of my Jag related escapades to help those like us, well me especially, who’ve been smitten with the Jaguar bug.
