Re: Renault Clio 2 - ABS + SERV Lights On*FIXED*

Never had a driveshaft that wouldn't come out with a few smacks.

A CV joint with reluctor ring and boot kit aren't much these days if it needs one.

If you have to punish it big time with a hammer to get it out, you'll probably destroy the bearing.

You might be able to get it pressed out but would still advise a new bearing be fitted at the same time.

It can also be heated to help seperate it, if you are fitting a new bearing anyway.

Or a 2nd hand hub and flange with a new joint and bearing.

No easy answer to this.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
