The best thing to use for oiling brush roll bearings? I have heard that WD40 is not good to use because it gathers dirt ETC on the bearings. Is there something else better to use?

We use WD-40 to clean the bearings, and then thoroughly dry them with a compressor, and then apply vehicle wheel bearing grease.

Do not use oil- that is just a mess, and do not use WD40 without drying the bearing afterwards.

If you are doing Hoovers, make sure you pay close attention to the spring behind the bearing when you put the assembly back together.

Let me know if you need any other help!

I didn't even know the bearings came apart! How do you get them apart?
