A couple wheel bearing lubrication tips for your BMW 2002.
Spread a thin film of high-quality wheel bearing lubricant over spindle and hub bore to retard rusting.
Do not over lubricate to avoid overheating and leakage.
If a commercial bearing packer is not available, hand-force lubricant into large end of roller cage until lubricant comes out of small end of cage.
Never mix types of lubricant (lithium-base-type vs sodium-base-type), and never use anything less than the very best available lubricant.
And, most important, keep it clean when working around wheel bearings.
