    Haynes gives 185 Nm / 136 lbf ft for vans and models with Bendix brakes and
    ABS, 200 Nm / 148 lbf ft for all others.

    My 98/99 306 has the drums separate from the hubs.

    Ah thanks, after much googling i did find 136lb/ft mentioned
    so that seems correct, now all i need to find out is if i have Bendix or ATE

    I took the wheel and dustcap off last night to check the size of the nut
    (32mm) and noticed it has a nut and circlip


    do you just need to remove the nut to get the drum off, does the circlip
    just hold the bearings in.

    All you have to do is remove the nut to remove the drum.
    It's recommended that you use a new nut and cap when reassembling and the nut should be tightened to 185 NM and then re-staked.
    All the best.
