Re: Driveshaft Splines stuck in Hub

I had a similar problem with my 1994 Clio and I didn't have a puller. I undone the big nut a few turns - using a piece of hardwood to protect the end of the drive-shaft and a club hammer thumped the end about 10 times - then re-tightened the big nut - I repeated this procedeure about 8 times and hey presto out it came. Even though it didn't appear to move at all when hammered it must have otherwise re-tightening the big nut wouldn't have had any affect. A few squirts of releasing fluid into the splines and at the back of hub may also have helped.
