Hi guys! I have a impreza rb5 on a 1999 plate.I am currently trying to remove the front hub (passenger side) to replace the bearing.
I have removed all the bolts holding the hub on however the hub will not release it's self from the ball joint at the bottom.
I have tried using a ball joint splitter but to no avail.
Is there a circlip or retaining feature that is not allowing it to be released?
Any help regarding the removal of this lower ball joint would be of great help and greatly apprecciated.
