A factory OE rear wheel bearing retainer ring applicable to 5-Spd Fiat and Bertone X1/9s from 1979-88 and Lancia Scorpion.
Direct replacement unit on the rear of all Lancia Beta vehicles.
Fiat 5-Spd X1/9 and Lancia Beta retainer rings are identical except for location of their ring removal slots.
For years, Fiat and Lancia owners have been forced to remove their retainer rings using hand tools.
Hand tools are a cumbersome and frustrating process that carries the risk of damaging the axle hubs.
The removal tools for Fiat X1/9 or Lancia retainer rings were very difficult items to find.
Midwest Bayless now offers the right tool for the job - just as nature intended.
We highly recommend using a factory specific tool designed to handle the style of retainer ring either being removed or installed.
The Lancia-style removal/installation tool, specific to this retainer ring, is available separately.

To preserve the maximum life-span of the Fiat X1/9's wheel bearings by ensuring they are protected from dust and dirt, we recommend replacement of the v-ring seals in the axle hubs.
