I have been reading all the hub threads lately and they mention washers and snap rings. i checked in the workshop manual and they are listed also.
My problem is i have removed my hubs many times since i have had the patrol and i do not have any washers or snap rings. just the auto hub assembly and the spacer ring.
Do i need the washers and snap ring? what happens if they are not fitted ?
previous owner replaced wheel bearing so i assume he did not refit them, i have replaced the wheel bearings since.
thanks for any advice.

The copper washer and snap ring hold the shaft from moving in and out. When I pulled mine of to change to avm hubs, there 2 grooves in the shaft. With my auto hubs fitted these were on the groove closest to wheel bearing. When changing to the avms I removed the copper washer and put the snap ring on the outer groove. From my understanding, I'm missing a bush that goes between bearing tension washers and the drive gears on the inner part of the hub. So I'll have to try and find them. Hope this helps
Cheers
