Re: Trafic Rear Disc / Pad Replacement

To be honest most mechanics re-use the existing hub nuts. If you opt for this then I suggest you check them after few miles of driving. If I cannot source new nuts I torque the old one up take it for a drive and then re-check - if all is well I then give the outer edge of the nut a good dig with a sharp chisel in order to tighten the grip of the Nylock ring.
New wheel bearing kits come with new nuts and thankfully my local motor factor usually has few spares kicking around.

There seems to be few suitable hub nuts available on good old fleabay.

Again the caliper bolts can be re-used but clean them with a wire brush and apply fresh thread-locking compound.
