What are the defects?

A premature wheel bearing failure occurred where Liplex Plus EP 2 was the grease used in the wheel hub assembly. Caltex is investigating the wheel bearing failure to ascertain its cause.

What are the hazards?

Insufficient level of grease within the wheel hub assembly may lead to wheel bearing failure that could result in the wheel suddenly seizing, bringing the vehicle or trailer to a halt. This has the potential to result in an accident.
