Rear Tire comes off of Car: 2012 Versa Sign In

Nissan Versa 2012 1.6L / Standard Shift
70,000 Kms

I am seeking information as to how the rear tire (including the drum) can come completely off of the car.

Last week, I had my car serviced at an auto repair shop. I had the front and rear brakes replaced. On the front, new pads were installed. On the rear, new shoes, bearings and drums were installed.

Here is a brief description of the incident. Within a span of 30 seconds the following occurred:
1) ABS Light came on;
2) The steering wheel began to shake violently;
3) Depressed brake to slow down when;
4) The TIRE, while still attached to the drum came off of the car and went flying 150meters out into the woods.
5) When the car stopped, I examined the rear of the car where I found the rear brake completely exposed. The main nut is visable and firmly holding the bearing behind it.

Could anyone help me solve this problem? How is a tire able to come completely off of the car like this?

Since it's a brake drum, you have to be talking about the rear. It means that the wheel bearings and lock nut were not installed properly.

Yup - bad news. That would happen 90% +/- to left rear tire not right - am I correct? Doesn't matter the car wasn't finished when you got it back somehow,

You definitely need to take it back to the shop that did the repair. They should fix that for free and any other damage done since they were the last ones to have their hands on it.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Discovered the problem.

After the bearing had been pressed inside the drum. The mechanic did finish the job by putting the c-clip that holds the bearing in. They were left in the old drums.

Very disastrous, as the c-clip is the only thing holding the drum onto the bearing.
