Re: Renault Clio Front Wheel Bearings
When removing the outer flange the inner race of the bearing has come out with it effectively destroying the bearing. To get it off the drive flange you need to either split it or grind it thin at one side. I usually grind it thin on one side then give it an almighty smack with a hammer and chisel causing it to split. If you are going to take the complete hub carrier to a garage for pressing there is no need to remove the flange as this can be done in the hydraulic press.
I reckon the guy in the video clip has been lucky as I have sen as much as 10 ton of pressure required to press out the bearing and obviously I doubt his kit would be incapable of such force.
Yes the replacment kit has all the parts you need.
