    • 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

    • lightly grease the hub seal and lockring (if used)

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

    • If you don't have Mobil XHP-222 grease, do not substitute any other grease. Suitable substitutes are Dumond Tech Freehub Oil, Phil Wood Tenacious Oil, 80W gear oil or 30W motor oil.

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