ABS Ring or Driveshaft Megane Mk1

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post to hopefully save time for anyone thinking of doing the ABS rings/driveshaft change/cv boot on a megane Mk1. There was a lot of talk about how all the hub had to be taken apart etc etc to get at the driveshaft. Turns out it's all unnecessary. I only had to undo the hub nut and the two bolts on the bottom ball joint and I found I could pull the hub out of the way whilst knocking the driveshaft spline out (helps if you pull the rubber brake line holder out). Then I could easily replace the ring (or do the whole driveshaft if you wanted). Whole job was dead easy and only 3 (admittedly tight and rusty) bolts. New ring went on easily with a little heat. 30mins.

I did also have to jack the other wheel off the ground to take the pressure off the anti-roll bar.

Pic attached showing the driveshaft pulled out with the hub, disk, caliper, sensor etc all still in place.

Re: ABS Ring or Driveshaft Megane Mk1

people are probably getting confused with the meganeII. The abs ring on that fits into the back of the hub with the bearing pressed in afterwards. It's not on the shaft like yours.
