An aftermarket vehicle is not the same as one that is fresh off the line. Older vehicles have tired, worn components, sagging suspensions and altered geometries. This webinar series addresses the aftermarket issues Technicians face every day, including avoiding plastic in key chassis components, adapting to the needs of EVs, finding fixes for OE faults and preventing costly repair mistakes. These webinars will help technicians make better choices for both the customer’s satisfaction and the shop’s bottom line.

Common oversights when servicing wheel bearings can often cause them to fail prematurely. Simple mistakes made before the hub assembly makes its first active rotation can determine how well it will perform in service and how long it will last.

If you want to avoid these common and simple errors, register now for our webinar. You will learn what you can do to avoid wheel bearing and hub assembly failure, including:

  • Part replacement best practices
  • What not to do during servicing
  • Maintenance dos and don’ts
  • Preventing damage when performing unrelated repairs
