Hi there

I've just removed the rear hub from my T5 to change brake pads and noticed a bit of oil in there. It's the first time I've done this, looking at the pic below, am I missing some kind of seel?

Thanks for any pointers/advice

No, it's OK. There's an internal seal working directly on the axle. A bit of oil will sometimes seep through the bearing. You can remove the dust cover and clean it up. There's a sandwiched felt inside that absorbs any oil…

Thanks SaFiS!

Wasn't sure if I had the internal seal type, I guess I have?

Just removed the felt retainer to reveal the bearings and some kind of seal cover. Will grease bearings and replace seal just in case as the hub is off.

Hoping this will solve oil issue as I hear you have to split engine to replace inner seal. Strangely I cannot find a drain hole that lots refer to when discussing the inner type of seal. Apparently there to stop gearbox oil getting through to brake drum if inner seal fails.

Any idea where I can get the bearing seal thing? Tried googling but not coming up, I'm probably calling it the wrong thing!
