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.
