We get this question a lot. Someone is servicing their bearings when suddenly they're faced with what looks like another seal when they just got done prying out the rubber seal. What to do? In this video we explain that this is in fact the bearing retainer cage and it's no problem to flush and lube around it. CAUTION: Do not remove the cage for any reason or else the balls will fall out and the bearing will be ruined. Trust me, you'll never get it back together.
Take a look this is something we get a question about a lot - you see what- you see this right here this is what people are expecting to see - right here - they're expecting to see all these balls and all that kind of stuff. But instead, they're seeing this -okay - this is actually the race. This is actually the inner race and this right here- is the retainer cage- this is not going to change the way we service this bearing. I can flush right around that retainer cage and add grease to it just as if the balls were showing it has not it's all very skeletal it has spaces all the way around it and it won't make a difference
