BPW'S TECHNICAL TIPS NO. 3 - SELF-STEER AXLES

If you operate vehicles fitted with BPW Self Steering axles then the maintenance period is 6 weeks. It is essential to observe this as it an essential requirement in ensuring the longevity of the king-pins and bushes. It is a good idea to jack up the axle so that the corrugated wear washers will separate and this will allow the grease to permeate between the surfaces. Use only BPW ECO Li Plus grease and apply it with a grease gun until the old grease is ejected along with any dirt and water.

BPW ECO-Li Plus grease is a class 3 grease and the only grease recommended for our axles available from all BPW parts distributors.

If you are struggling to refill your grease gun YouTube offers lots of videos to help you walk through this in easy steps.
