    Default Rear Wheel Bearing - Not Vec, but a Clio

    Hi All,

    I know its not a Vec - but seeing as your all knowledgable chaps - thought I would ask in the place that someone would know

    Mate of mine's missus has a 2002 1.2 16v Renalt Clio and the rear off side wheel bearing has gone, so has asked me to replace.

    Its a Drum style brake setup on the back..

    So - is this going to be relativley easy - will I need any special tools, and has anyone done this before on the clio.

    Any help really appreciated..

    Thanks Anthony

    the hub nut is tightened to 175nm so will be fairly tight,but from past experience of french cars the hub nut will be a staked type so you will need a new nut

    So - once I have undone that - I take it I then just take old bearing out and put new in?? Simple?

    these are easy and should take about 30 mins, once you have removed the wheel and the hub nut, release the hand break so it releases the drum then it should just pull forward, once it off there is a circlip in the outter side of the drum remove it and then turn the drum over and with a hammer and chisel/punch knock the bearing all the way out, once its out get the new one and tap it in till it stops and then replace everything as you took it off. HTH

    in most cases there are only 2 types of rear wheel bearing on a front wheel drive car,a sealed type like what is fitted to the vauxhall range or a seperate bearing which are tapped out and back in,you will know more once you have the bearing but as you have a hub nut the latter type would be favourite

    most off the old vx have tappered rear bearings in drums and some on discs, the new vx have solid bearings like you get on the front, the clio will bear a solid bearing so its just a knock out and in

    Great mate - fantastic help both of you thanks very much.

    So the bearing sits in the removable drum and not in the hub itself?
