    Im asuming youve removed drive shaft nut too. Usually they sieze into the ally hub due to the bearing/hub being steel. Basically lots of WD40 or simular and lots of banging with hammer....

    or a massive torque bar, jump up and down on it, a hammer hurts too much if you have a low pain threshold. OR
    I assume by your post you have already removed the large hub nut, not sure of the size but I do know its bigger than 30mm. Its a sealed unit and the bearing is very tight on the hub and should be pressed off properly. Well upto now thats been my find. hope this helps. Oh the other way is to remove the two bolts at the bottom of the strut ease the driveshaft out take the whole lot away put in a vice and remove the hub nut that way, little bit of heat never goes amiss when removing two metals that rust together

    Hi Guys yeah I have taken the large hub nut off.

    I have banged and hammered.

    It should in theory just come off because i cant see anything that can hold it !!

    I Have also found why the front right might be making a noise after a good inspection I found that the spring has snapped off which may contribute to my problems.

    SO now I have put it back together until I can get a a pair of springs for the front!! Any ideas on the cost guys and also how much the whole set to lower it !!!

    Hey im wondering how much would be the cost if i'll be visiting my dealer for wheel hub assembly? It is located between the brake rotors and the axle right? From how it looks i dont think i can do it by myself. From what you have mentioned guys i only have wd40 i dont even have a hammer but i have some cash.
