Hub Question

I have a 01 F250 SD. The hubs have never been easy to turn in and out, even with a pair of pliers. Yesterday I went to turn them out and I broke the plastic cross section. Can the outer plastic section of the hub be replaced or do you have to buy the whole thing?
Also what is the best way to lubricate the hubs ?

Thanks

Kinda late for this now, But, you need to maintain the hubs just like anything else instead of forcing them to the point you break something,,,,,

-> Welcome to guzzle's 4x4 Autolock Hub Lubrication Maintenance Web Page

This is for Auto hubs (which require more maintenance) but you'll get the idea. As for the part you already broke, I'm not sure where, other than the dealer, to get it. Maybe it's time to consider a new set of Warns??? More expensive of course, but better than stock ever was

you cannot repair the broken plastic housing, you will need to replace the entire hub. everyone on here recommends warn. The only way to really lubricate the sealed ring inside the hub is to set it upside down in a few inches of trans fluid overnight.

It will have to be replaced. i'm assuming it broke because it siezed up for lack of maintenance, but to be safe read up on maintenance/diagnosing the actual hub assembly too. it can go bad and destroy your locker along with a host of other things. I just spent $2000+ on parts to re-do my front end. if the hub assembly is bad, your new outer hub wont last long.
