Re: Laguna II, front hub nut removal
Mmm.....thats a little too far away for me to help out.
I had it in the back of my mind that you were in Poole.
Ah, bit of a commute that! Thanks for the thought anyway.
I had a day off today (to study!!) and took it to the local tyre fitter who used the biggest air hammer I've ever seen to take it off. Didn't want any money, but I gave him the price of a few pints anyhow, at least then I can go back and ask again if I need to. He seemed genuinely shocked!
The rest of the job was fairly straight, forward, just remove the old hub and fit the new (well, new to me anyway- donated by a mate). Apart from a bit of trouble with the big bolts holding the strut to the hub, there were no problems. Best if all, the abs is cured, no lights, no wobbly speedo needle, just a car that works.
I love it when a plan comes together....
