Hello,

I've been working to change the bearings system on the front wheel conductor side. I removed all the bolts (3 bolts holding the bearings system), and I can't remove the bearings, it'ts like it been weld there in the rust! I tried many things:
with a hammer, a crowbar... It dosen't move a millimetre!

What can I do?
Do you

Do you mean the big Bolt in the center of the bearing Assembly? If it's that, yes! If not, how I remove the axle?

Thanks

It is the heavy metal piece that hub/bearing is in. Need to remove ball joint, tie rod and strut. May want to see if a parts house has tool and will rent to you.
