Re: clio authentique, problem fitting brake shoes

Wow, are both inner races touching each other, no gap to talk about,,,
Did you not have to force the bearing inner race back in... or as looking at your video slight pressure?
Will the other side of your bearing pop out as easy?
Or is it coming apart easy, because you have had the drum off a few times.
The inner races dont normally come out without a fight, but they are only held in by the plastic brace, that holds the ball bearings in place..

Fill it with grease, and rebuild, make sure you tighten the nut up to 175nm ,,,,
This Bearing did come as a one piece unit? Was there a clip, between the two inner races, to hold the inner races together?

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,
