Some good information and advice. I appreciate that link and may try this myself next time. I don't have much for tools or a place to work on my X right now, (especially when snow is on the ground) but hopefully that will be changing in the near future.
Anyway, here's why I'm asking. I took my X into a place because of a slow leak on my Pass side front tire, it turned out the wheel was very corroded inside and the seal was bad, so I had them remove all the tires and clean the wheels and re-seal them. While the tires were off they did an inspection and said the wheel bearings needed to be repacked. I decided to trust them and said go ahead since I was already in and they had the wheels off.
Well, they charged me $313.00 for the repacking and to replace the seals. Afterwards I started to wonder if I had been taken so I decided to ask here and do some research on line. I believe now I was. And it pisses me off, though it's after the fact and I can only use it as a learning experience.
I should have waited and researched first. Especially since I've found this forum and the wealth of information and help here.
