Laguna mk1 whole rear hub removal

Hey Man

How do I remove the whole rear hub including the bearing, brakes, backplate, drum e.t.c., basically everything exept the rear strut and spring.
Does it come off in one lump?
I know I'll have to cut the brake pipe and handbrake cable.
The whole hub from the local scrappys works out much cheaper than buying a new wheel bearing.

Cheers Man

Re: Laguna mk1 whole rear hub removal


ahh reread it, youve got drums yuk:loser:

there are x4 allen key type sloted bolts on the back axle's of most renaults.
the stub axle's hub will come off quite easily if you can get full access underneath (garage ramp is ideal) so you can get a 3foot breaker-bar socket wrench in there.
the brake hose is or should be fairly easy to disconnect without breaking it, though having a brake repair kit (new copper pipe and ends would not go amiss.)
you might also need replacement rubber brake hoses to go between the chassis and axle.
best of luck with the rear brake axle load adjuster, they tend to either be set to max or will have corroded up (or both.) favorite is for the arm to have broken or seized. and yes there is supposed to be a plastic clip on the end that locks it in place to the axle arm.

undo the main handbrake cable in the middle by the begining of the mid box pipework., 14 and 15mm spanners for that.

have you checked prices on fleabay for drums with bearings ? they are not that expensive.

if you look about you should be able to find either a Brembo or ATE disc hub (with ABS) on late mk1's kicking about in breakers yards.
Thats what i did with my mk1 laggy, it was originaly fited with drums but i changed them for a pair of Bembo caliper fitted Hubs off a 98 2.0L sport then about 2 years later with those off a 99 1.6L alize (they were and still are quite rare as the majority were drum only on the basic models.)

new handbrake cables are the expensive bit at about 50 for the pair.

Spare parts available for 2001 Scenic 1.9Dci, 97 Lag1, 02 Lag2.
everythings gotta go....
cheap prices...
