View Full Version : Freightliner Chassis Front Wheel Issue

08-31-2010, 08:24 AM
Recently during a trip I notice the smell of Gear oil fron the front passenger wheel. I pulled the coach over and investigated the smell. Upon removing the center cover on the wheel i found that the rubber plug for the wet bath front wheel bearings had disappeared and was no where to be found. I procedeed to ADvance Auto to get some gear oil and hopefully a plug. Unable to find a plug that size at the parts store we decided to spend the night at a local campground, while setting up the coach I realized i had a threaded rubber plug that would work. the next morning I filled the wet sump screwed the plug in and went on our way( Also checked Driver Side) Now the big question is where do I get the correct plugs, any help would be appreciated
