Unhappy Re: Renault Laguna 2 - Ball Joint Replacement

Hello Folks,

I've started this job on my MKII Laguna and i'm a bit stuck!

Luckily the off-side (driver side) ball joint has separated from the hub carrier BUT i can't break loose the locking nut on the thing. So far i've thrown WD40 on it but it won't budge.

Is the lock nut meant to unlock clockwise or anti clockwise? Can it be ceased? The inner track rod is 14mm while the locking nut is 20mm on this which differs to the instructions above.. I am completely lost here but I know I don't want to spend 75 pr hr to have it removed. Any ideas? I've attached a pic.

Thanks All.
