    Default Rear drum/hub of 205

    Following a spirited track session yesterday, on the drive home in the 205 it felt as though the RHS rear wheel was loose or unbalanced. I pulled over, wheel nuts were tight, so I slowly drove the rest of the way home.

    Last night I had a quick look with the wheel off and the problem seems to be the hub/drum. I removed the grease cap and the hub nut seems tight - but the drum itself is loose. This would explain why the wheel felt like it was unbalanced.

    But because the hub nut seems tight and the stake is in place there is obviously a problem. Wheel bearing?

    I won't have time for a few days to take the hub off and have a look. Any tips on getting the hub nut off?

    Just in case anyone lands here after a search - and to close out the topic - it was a failed wheel bearing.
