Wheelbearing Direction?

I got a new frontwheel bearing for my Marea, maxgear 2845/mg. Its not obvious to me which is the ABS sensor side. The old one only had a black seal on one side which was the ABS sensor side. This one has red sealing on both sides and no marking or instruktions. Both sides seem magnetic, could it have magnetic seal on both sides? Anyone used this brand before?

Re: Wheelbearing Direction?

I Dont think the seals are magnetic, Cant even hold a small paperclip. So I guess these are for cars without Abs or with the old style of Abs built into end of driveshaft.

Re: Wheelbearing Direction?

If those are magnetic bearings, the side without stampings would be towards the sensor. The stamping would mess up the magnetfiels a bit.

Looking up on the stamped part number comes up only as angular contact bearing, no specialities.

Re: Wheelbearing Direction?

As common courtesy, the stampings of a bearing are ALWAYS on the visible side, this means whoever follows, doesn't have to remove the bearing to find a reference number when it needs replacing.
