Unhappy Replacing Rear Wheel Bearings - Broke Oil Slinger

Well,

I decided to replace my rear wheel bearings today. Everything was going alright until I broke my oil slinger (the part that goes between the inner bearing and the hub seal - Part# F81Z4670AA). The Ford dealer is closed, and I won't be able to get a new one until Monday after work. Is there really a need for this little metal washer with bent over tabs? I read somewhere that this "Slinger" is to help keep the oil away from the seal, but I don't know.

I guess, what I am trying to do, is talk myself out of waiting and buying the Slinger, and just slap this thing back together tonight! What do you think?

Thanks,

Greg

If they didn't need it Ford wouldn't have put them in, the bean counters would have cut that corner already. I'd wait and put it back original

Yeah, that is what I was thinking. The original one looks like it has a little wear on it, so I figured that it was doing something!

Thanks for not letting me cut corners Hopefully they will have one in stock on Monday.
