Smile Re: Abs reductor/target rings

My friendly mechanic managed to replace the reductor ring without too much trouble. I purchased the ring from ukparts direct for just over 10, the hub needed a little encouragement to remove (using another nut to help to not damage the thread) and then the split reductor ring came off easily. After cleaning the area under the ring carefully, and heating the new ring to blue heat, it fitted back on easily and was fixed by the ring cooling (just like a cartwheel!) I was charged 40, which was a whole lot better than the nearly 300 that renault would have charged for a new driveshaft. I'm very happy, all is working well.
