This probably seems simple to most but can anyone tell me what would most likely be causing this problem.



Mant Thanks

Hi ozdragon,This could be caused by 3 things
1 damaged grease cap
2 wrong type of grease (melting at low temp)
3 too much grease (no room for expansion)

Hope this helps

Also possible a brake caliper dragging, causing excessive heat and melting the bearing grease.

Looks like a LandRover. Some would say this is normal :-)))

Not sure of your setup, but it might have been overpacked (Do LandRovers still fill the hub with oil instead of grease???). And simply levering off the cap, and a smear of silcone around the rim of the cap may fix it. But then again, there are other sinister causes mentioned above.

Cheers
Phil

Take your pick..
As above-
1 damaged grease cap
2 wrong type of grease (melting at low temp)
3 too much grease (no room for expansion)

also-
Blocked diff breather or water in diff oil- it pressurises diff and blows oil out past the axle seals into the swivel hubs
A dud oil seal between axle housing and axle
loose drive flange nuts- if you dont tighten them soon, they may shear off.

Discs or drums?
Looks like a calliper in there, but if drums, check the pistons for leaking or shoes for being jammed on and boiling the hub grease.
