Hi,
is anyone familiar with the rear axle seal on the guilia spider?
I inspected my drivers side rear seal in the tube end, it had S284 on it then 32, 52, 10.
These seem like logical mm measurements but the axle is 30mm diameter, so it doesn't stop oil entering the brake area.
Is oil supposed to pass the seal in a controlled manner to lubricate the wheel bearing? or is it supposed to seal completely? If yes does the wheel bearing run in grease?
I have a wet drivers side and a dry passenger side but I didn't inspect the dry side.
Here's hoping someone knows about these seals.....
Cheers
Nick

No.

Yes.

It's a sealed bearing-permanently lubricated.
Rear axle seal should be 30x52x10
Rear axle bearing: original:RIV 9705 ; Modern replacement:88136

Thanks GTD,
looks like someone fitted the wrong seal in the past then.
The oil drips abit down the inside and alot on the outside of the brake backplate and is then slung around the wheel (inside) and in the wheel arch.
Quite a mess in all.
I will check if OKP have a seal in stock as they are local for me, or even a bearings/seals vendor may have that.
Thanks for the quick answer anyway
Nick
