Question about DT Swiss 240s Front Hub

1 Answer

My rear hub appears loose such that there is lateral play in the wheel - not much (maybe 3mm) but it reminded me of the problem I used to have with cup and cone hubs when they weren't adjusted and I was under the impression that this did not happen with sealed hubs. How do I fix it?

Just the bearing is sealed, still needs to have the system held together and that system can loosen up. I would suggest taking the wheel into a shop that works on higher end components and have them adjust the hub for you, but if you want to do it yourself here is the manual. You may need some special tools depending on why the hub is loose. Could be anything from the cones just need to be reseated (tightened) which can be done with an allen wrench to a larger maintenance issue.

09 stang GT/CS conv. play in Rt.Rr wheel lugs r tight. I can move wheel and rotor in and out a lil bit. No grinding noise when wheel spins.


There may be a slight amount of end play in each rear wheel if rear wheel drive. This is normal axle end play with a solid axle. If the rear axles are CV joint type with a small differential, suspect a loose/worn wheel bearing/hub assembly

Rear wheel assembly of my bike is shaking side ways


Sounds like loose 'cones' in the rear wheel hub. The cones are cone-shaped nuts that the bearings run against, being held in place within the hub in the 'cup' of the hub. Tighten the cones until there is free rotation of the wheel with no lateral play. Hold the cone in place with the spanner whilst tightening the lock-nut and recheck the adjustment. If you lack the tools take it to your nearest independent local bike shop and they will surely be happy to help.

All bolts out but can't get the hub loose from the carrier. 2004 Dodge ram . It's really stuck. How can I get it loose? I have the new part and need to do both sides. This is a front wheel hub. on a 2...


I know this sounds stupid, but did you remove the cotter key and the nut from the hubs flange on the outside? This is what keeps it linked to the axle splines the other bolts you removed keep the bearing /hub assembly tied to the front suspension. This answer is not meant to be insulting to you. Just a reminder. Some people do not know about the purpose of this nut at the end of the axle.

My Piaggio Vespa 125cc rear wheel has slight play. What could this be?


no panic - this is typical for the old 2stroke Vespas as their gearbox is on the rear axle....(needs no belt like the newer ones)
-but then there is a certain amount of play needed...

How to change stud in rear wheel hub assembly. i need to know how to change the stud in the rear wheel hub assembly, and how do i go about taking it apart


Remove tire and wheel, remove caliper and brake rotor. DO NOT apply the brakes while the caliper is loose. Hit stud you want to replace hard with a LARGE HEAVY hammer to drive it out towards vehicle. DO NOT use a light hammer. It will distort the stud and possibly mushroom the end making it very difficult to remove. Once the stud is loose, you may or may not have enough room to get it out of the hole. You may need to pull the hub loose from the rear suspension to gain more room. Remove the stud. Place new stud in hole. Put a stack of washers over the stud, grease the threads, and using a new FLAT nut with the same threads as the lug nut, tighten until the stud is pulled all the way into the hub. Remove the flat nut, reattach the hub assembly (if you needed to take it loose) and reinstall the brakes.

sounds like another bad hub brg, jack up front end and check for play in wheels from top to bottom wiggle for movement. A loose wheel brg will set a front speed sensor code.
