Question stripped thread on hub


I would like some thoughts on the following.
Daughter leaves car 1.4 Clio (2004) at garage to change front brake pads.They inform her disks also required?. during removal of disks caliper/carrier top hub bolt comes out with threads (stripped).They carry out quick repair (larger bolt fitted).It now seems a new hub assy is reqd. What i would like to know is has any one else had problems with these bolts stripping threads or is it a case of bad workmanship due additional cost involved ie new hub/bearing/labour.

Thanks in advance

Re: stripped thread on hub

I have had this happen 4 -5 times over the years and not only on Renaults. The bolts are normally fitted using thread lock compound plus the inner end of the bolt becomes corroded.

Two options for repair are eithe rhave the stripped threds heli-coiled or replace the hub carrier.
A second hand unit is likely to be your cheapest option.
