Re: Renault clio 2003 brake drum issue???

This won't help diagnosis but i drove about 5 miles after
the driver siderear wheel bearing failed VERY noisily.
Only 12 out of 18(?)rollers left in the inboard bearing.The escapees had graunched round the brake drum.
Local scrapyard wanted£20 for a drum and bearing.I asked if i could have the abs sensor too as the wobbling wheel had worn the end of it.when i got there the drum was off together with the backplate & stub axle.I ended up paying £25 for the lot.
As it happened the drum /bearing just slid nicely onto the stub axle,the original abs sensor was ok so i could have saved the£5.Seems i was dead lucky for 2 alien bits fitting so nicely!
Local car bits shop price for a bearing kit was £18 plus loadf of agro knocking the old bearing out etc.
Fdit: And just to sing the praises of a good scrapyard i ended up with a glass-less electric mirror for£5---the one knocked off had its glass intact when i picked it up off the road.
