Tata Indica LSi 1.4 RHD model. First time working on an Indian brand car. This one has rear brake linings or shoes as they are also known as. I used the method someone mentioned here to remive the hub after I couldnt get it out. But the other side I battled then realised I had a huge enough 3 legged pully puller which came in handy. As mentioned remove the wheel then the cap for the bearing followed by the 24mm nut and big flat locating washer. Then fit the wheel back on to the hub with the other parts removed and fit the 24mm nut on to the shaft but just the tip. Use the 3legged puller to tighten up against the nut which will then pull the wheel, drum and wheel bearing off the car. Simple as that. No need for pulling the wheel back and forth with force to remove it. You wont get it off if one bearing is sitting on tight. Cheers
