sorry, I don't know much about w169, yet, LOL.
these hubs also crack round the bend and not only by the circlip, I've done one today and the complaint was "first gear slipping slightly". At first, the hub looked intact, but when I used special magnifier then I saw a very thin crack that would open like a sandwich under pressure.
the modified hub looks stronger where the circlip goes, not by the bend which makes this late modification a total waste of time.
picture to follow.
There's a very serious problem with W168 A-Class, a bad mechanic
