I need help from you guys not in the US . I have a front wheel bearing on my 2012 sx4 going bad so i need to fix before it gets cold . I have the new bearing BUT, there is a snap ring that supposed to be replaced when replacing the bearing, after many calls and web searching that snap ring is not available in the us, well I was told that its on an unknown backorder. So I wanted to know if anyone has had to replace the bearing and just used the old snap ring. some vids on youtube said that the ring sometime gets damaged when removing it . its still drivable , so I don't want to rip into it and not have the part to get it all back together.
