What have you done?

The rear wheel bearing was the one thing I did not break on my GQ.

How are you old friend? Trust the weather is keeping you cool and you are getting your share of the rain.

G'day Duncs


Haven't done a thing.......LOL

All bearings OK. Actually, replaced the rear passenger wheel seal about 100,000km ago. Going on a big trip this year so thinking whether I should look at them. Maybe not. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!

We only had 249mm last year though the place is looking very green at the moment. That equates to 51mm below the average. Not a cloud in the sky since the turn of the year and it has been quite fresh of a morning. Day temps around doubt summer will come with a burst, soon!

HNY to you too.

Good to hear things are close to normal.

We had 35 + in the back yard hear in the big smoke yesterday. Not to bad a temp in the Hill but here where it was running about 85% humidity not fun. Lucky my neighbour is away and I have the terrible job of looking after their pool.

With the wheel bearing mate. My GQ had 385k on it when I sold it and the rear wheel bearings were showing no sign of damage.

I did replace one on the old MQ. Like others have said it leaked for a while before I replaced it and it was still not making noises when I did. It is not a difficult job if you have the right tools but you need a press that will accept the axle. I ended up at a Nissan dealer to get it done. I did the stripping out and just took the axle down to the workshop. It took about 10 min while I drank coffee in the showroom. Don't remember the cost.

Hope the new trip makes for good reading, do a couple of bush kilometres for me while your'e out there.

Did one on My Gq Willem, rear passenger side , leaked actually and didn't fix it for couple of months and gunk was everywhere and hard to remove when I did because it got burned on.

Hi Guys I have to add to the list ,did 150.000 kays in the old GQ and replaced the rear passenger seals 3 times.Finished up they sealed it with silicone,they said.Ruined the brake lining's every time as well.Must have been a weak point.
