Re: clio authentique, problem fitting brake shoes

These can be a nightmare to remove, most of the time, it is because the bearing is now not sitting true on the stub axle,,,.
Knock the bearing back, this will then centralize it, then spray some WD40 over the stub axle,,, if desperate because you have no wd or penetrating oil , some furniture polish will work,,( yes really) then slide it off .

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,
