clio bearings

just an update

when i got the car back from the renault garage ( after replacing the bearing ) there was a slight squeek and tight spot when turning the wheel this got worse so i took it back and they said it must be the bearing i supplied not there workmanship. i inspected the wheel hub and found what they call run out on the disk For those non mechanics this meant the disk wasnt running true. i changed over the disks to make sure they were not warped and the problem was still there. Myself and a friend took the hub off which wasnt that hard replaced the ball joint which renault had damage when removing and took it to a proper garage.
they gave me 2 options grind the disk to run true or remove the bearing OUCH more problems. midland car parts provided me with another bearing at cost in case it had been faulty £21 ( it wasnt it was the way the renault mechanic had made a complete *rse of replacing it ) so the other garage used the 1 i supplied and a new centre hub.
the difference was amazing and car feels like normal again, quiet, brakes in a straight line, no noise/grinding

i would highly recommend you find a garage with a properly trained mechanic who prides himself in his work, but this may not be the cheapest option. The renault garage still insists they had done a good job which i completely disagree with and will never take it there again.

last chapter i Hope....

The bearings are "interference fit" and need to be pressed in square and evenly otherwise....

.... well you know the rest.

At least it sounds like it's sorted.

I just had my front bearing done about 2 weeks ago...the noise was still there...!

Then I got the drivers side rear bearing changed...and hey presto. Car runs sweet again...!

It's not always the front bearing.

I have a slight groaning coming from the rear when I reverse and only when I reverse! Could this be bearings?
