      Rear wheel bearing

      Hey all,

      So I have the taper bearing that goes in the rear of the drum but as I was on my way home I realized that I don't have a seal. I don't recall even seeing remnants of a seal.
      There should be a seal there right?? If so, anyone have the part number? Preferably a National/BCA number.

      No seal. The bearing is sealed.
      I leased Pontiac Wave from September 2006 to August 2011.

      thats the cap, most cars have a dust seal the goes on "first' to the spindle.. would be pushing into the back of the hub before the hub goes onto the spindle..

      A taper bearing is NOT sealed. (so I thought until I got into it now again.)

      Nope, that is the dust cap. I'm asking if there is a seal that goes on the opposite side of the drum to keep the grease on the bearing from spraying all over inside the drum.

      Nope, I have to GET a bearing first. no one around here stocks them and the damned things are expensive for such a small car. I'm used to $30 would replace the 4 taper bearings and 2 seals on BOTH SIDES of the rear of a VW. And get my a 6-pack of tall boys to drink while doing it.
