Re: Clio rear hub nut ???

The Clio and practically every other Renault I've worked on has a one piece sealed bearing in the rear hubs and is not adjustable.
The hub nut is not castellated but is of the nylock type and is a once-only fitting and should be replaced each time.
The old nut can be used for assembly and once everything is fitted up correctly the new nut can be fitted on completion.
Torque is as quoted at 175 Nm.
