Cleaning wheel hubs isn’t a difficult process, but it’s a necessary one that can impact the performance of entire vehicles. The process often varies by technician and available resources, but there are some basic steps you can take to get the job done. Protective gear, such as eyewear, gloves and hearing protection, are needed before cleaning can begin. Brake solvents to remove grease and cleaning sets are normally used, including disks which can be attached to power tools. These disks can clean surfaces and help remove rust, enhancing the functionality of wheel hubs. Surfaces should be cleaned until debris is removed and units are ready for installation.
