    Ring

    Hey guys, managed to lose the wafer thin ring that goes between the hex nut and the wheel bearing.
    It's not shown in the pic but if you have MIP X-Duty cvds you'll know what I'm talking about..
    Anyway is this life or death if the hex nut is next to the bearing or do I need a replacement ring?
    All I have is washers, metal not plastic, so don't know if that would cause more harm than good.

    I've never used a teflon washer between the MIP hex and the bearing, and I'm not sure why you would use one either. Just make sure the elevated side of the hex faces the bearing.

    Exactly what Viking said. You donít use the Teflon washers with MIP xduty axles. Just make sure the wheel hex is positioned correctly against the bearing.
