Re: Megane 1, removal & reinstallation of wheel hub/wheel bearing

Nice post, followed all the advice and all went according to plan until the I tried to tap the driveshaft out from the carrier! There was no human way of getting the driveshaft out by hitting it. So I tried a thirty ton press I have access to at work and still to no avail. all that I managed to do is break one of the brake caliper lugs clean off. I need the car back on the road urgently, so I guess I'll be off to our friendly machine shop and get them to do the dirty work, pull the shaft out, hopefully without destroying the bearings, and weld the lug back into place. I had a look at the service manual I have on hand and they use locktight to keep the shaft in place, but it shouldn't be that difficult to separate, should it .
