Re: clio mk 2, bearings, wheel cylinder
IFFF you have not attacked the wheel cylinder yet,
Undo the pins holding the wheel cylinder to the back plate.
Pull the wheel cylinder forward, ( BE careful not to damage the pipe, or flexi, )
Hold the brake pipe end, and unscrew the wheel cylinder,, (It is easy with the hub off)
I find taking the pistons of the wheel cylinder out, and putting an extension bar through the centre of the wheel cylinder, and then using an extension bar/screwdriver as a lever, just to initially loosen it.
I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,
