Repacking the bearings on your XJS

Here is the procedure for repacking the bearings with grease on the XJS:
First off you need to remove the calipers, or just push them aside, click on the link for the procedure: click here

  • When you have the caliper out of the way, you need to remove the cap with a cap puller:


Here is a pic of the puller: 
  • With the cap removed you need to take out the cotter pin with some cutting pliers:


  • After the pin is removed remove the cap that covers the nut and holds the pin:


  • I like to use a small set of channel locks to remove the nut


  • Then you have to pull on the rotor to remove the small bearing, make sure it doesn;t fall on the floor otherwise it will need to be replaced. There is a big washer and then the bearing. Make sure you ar eplacing everything in order on a table.


  • Then you can pull the rotor and hub assembly.
