    Default R10 Front Wheel Bearings

    Hi All,

    Advertisement


    Does anyone know the bearing number for the inner front wheel bearing for an R10. I don't want to take the wheel and hub off just to have a look unless really pressed.

    I don't mean the Renault part number but the standard bearing number, the size is 22 X 47 X 20.75. I have done some looking on the WWW but not found the answer.

    It's not a standard bearing as far as I know, but unique to the R10.

    For the earlier cars, like our R8 and probably your Floride S, it is an SNR 30204 and the outer is 30203. These bearings fit the 4CV (R1062) and all the Dauphine/Floride series. The early R8 were the same, but later they increased the size of the stub axles and put a spacer behind the bearing but integral with it rather than being a spacer washer.

    I think you have to go to somewhere like Bretagne Auto Retro and buy the genuine article.

    I concur with not pulling it down to get the number - fiddly with the calliper brackets etc.

    Cheers

    Yes I understand it is unique to the R10, Caravelle. In 2009 when in France I bought 2 for a friend at 42 EUR each. But in Brisbane there is a bearing supplier that also purchases all old and surplus bearing stock. The R12, 15, 17 rear wheel bearing is also an odd size. He had 6 on hand and I bought them all at a cheap price. I have 4 left but two cars that will possibly need them in the nearish future. However to see whether he has the front inner 10 bearing I would like a part number. He does have old catalogues but I prefer to ring him with a number rather than drive all the way over on the off chance. Anyone?

    Sorry, if I'd answered the question fully in the first place..... From my round-eye R10 factory parts book, the Renault part numbers are:

    1. inner bearing is 8576155
    2. outer is 8576153

    There's a seal behind the inner bearing too, and it is 8557712
    The 'sometimes destroyed' pressed steel cap at the back is 6082422. Sometimes seals come as a kit with the pressed steel cap.

    Cheers

    Tricky. The only one that actually has an illustration that LOOKS like the right bearing is the 123kugellager page. The others match dimensions but either aren't illustrated or look like tapered roller bearings that lack the basal plinth that the real R10 front inners have. They might be OK of course but I'd want to be sure.

    See http://bretagneautoretro.fr/crbst_185.html and the bearing plinth is very obvious. Bretagne Auto Retro have the bearings, separately or as a kit and sell the basal seal separately too. The inner bearing is quoted at Euro 39 (add as much again for postage....)

    The inner bearings that I have here for my Alpine A110 (same front hub as R10) are SNR AC10059

    The outer bearings that I have here for my Alpine A110 (same front hub as R10) are SNR 30203A

    That'll be it Col.

    30203 carries through from 1950 4CVs like mine right through to the end of the R10 but they strengthened the stub axle at the inner end, replacing 30204 with that AC10059. The R16 rear went up one size to 30205 (inner) and 30204 (outer).

    Rang the Surplus Bearings Slacks Creek people and Peter answered and when I quoted AC10059 he said I know the number Renault isn't it. He didn't have any in stock but rang around and found only two in Australia. Original NOS Renault. Quote $85 each. He is posting them out to me. That is a cheap price and he checked his old books and confirmed they are for late 8, 10 and Caravelle. They are the most obliging people to deal with. I should get all my bearings there but they are a long way away from me. Still they will post out so no real excuse not to use them.

    Thanks all for the number.

    Great outcome thanks to Col. They might be cheaper in Europe but that is ahead of postage.....
