Also when you stick your thumb through the brittle plastic window when replacing the rubber plug after visual inspection.

Ask me how I know.....

I did this once when I worked as a UPS driver and they tried to say it was driver abuse. This was during my pre-trip

This means it's time to get rid of those junk Stemcos. They're just the worst and yet they keep showing up. My Volvo shop put them on my steers without my consent and now I have to change them out. Again. Jay

So Jaydrvr, which manufacturer do you prefer. I suspect the brittle plastic was at least 10 years old, not very many clear plastics last that long in Central Florida sun.

It's not just the FL sun. The first time I broke a Stemco window was on a January winter day in Ohio and then I was stranded at my delivery. After much frustration with the Stemcos everyone kept using, I ran my own comparative test on my rig. Basically, any that don't have the sandwiched window like the Stemcos are much better, but this one is my final choice. They're available everywhere and darn near bulletproof. The school bus company I haul for puts them on all their school buses. That to me confirms my research. Jay

Ok - take a scout around the Hendrickson website .... 

But first I forgot to ask if you have the owner manual for the truck and if yes if you looked at the maintenance schedules in there? 

The manual says there is no set interval for changing hub oil.
