Front hub with broken circlip/missing spacer


Got into hub to repack front bearings. Upon disassembly found a broken circlip, no spacer behind it at all.
The hub nuts were also loose and the washer that was supposed to be bent was flat.

Question is. What spacer am I missing behind the circlip and how thick was it?
Where to get a new circlip and how to measure and buy the correct spacer

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you are talking about the spacer, washer, that may or may not go between the clip and the hub flange then it all depends upon the play in the shaft, ,drive shaft end play,. The factory specifications should be between .08 to 0.25 MM. They have different thickness sized washers depending upon how much play you have in the shaft. I would guess that the play would depend upon the wear of the components and how stuff fits together. If the lock washer wasn't bent back then it is a good thing that you are taking care of it now.

A lot don't have spacers. The lock tab a circlip are important though.
