yes you need to have the bearing taken out the old discs and pressed into the new ones. most people tend to budget for new bearing n all tho i think, least i do as a matter of course

I thought when you buy new discs coops the bearing is in a new disc????

iirc?

If your bearing has gone mate just buy a new disc with bearing pre-installed.

Less farting around if my above quote is correct.
Hope im making sense there!!!! :?

only if you buy the discs from renault then they have bearings in them.

I've bought the bearing seperate from the disks b4 and had to get them pressed in, but this time I went for the Renault ones to save the hassle....plus the price worked out to be roughly the same
