    • Clean the freehub lockring if your hub uses one

    • 2016+ hubs and freehubs use a one piece seal and no lockring, so skip this step if you don't see the lockring

  5. Lightly grease the hub's ratchet ring and seal face using Mobil XHP-222 grease
    • Lightly grease the hub's ratchet ring and seal face using Mobil XHP-222 grease

    • If you don't have Mobil XHP-222 grease, it is important to select a suitable replacement with similar properties. Do not use heavy lithium or marine greases. Suitable substitutes are Dumond Tech Freehub Oil or Pro Freehub grease, Phil Wood Tenacious Oil, or similar lubricant with heavy oil / light grease type consistency.

    • Do NOT pack the freehub assembly full of grease. Just a light coating is adequate. Excess grease will potentially cause issues with pawl/spring return and lead to a freehub failure.

    • Re-install the freehub body following the axle removal and install instructions
