    Disconnect battery for half an hour first. Then a small flat bladed screwdriver through the back of the wheel in two deep small holes to release back, bit off wiggling till you find the catch, first ones hard to do second is always easy. Then remove two plugs to bag (pull little tab out first). Then Torx key, big one I think its a T40 or T50 or something. Then wiggle pull and heave. Be careful to realign gubbings at the back if you knock clock spring out. Refitting, as they say, is the reverse of above.

    I did have it off a few times when I put the 3-spoke on it as I could not get it to sit straight when I was going straight down the road. Tracking the car sorted it in the end>

    Good idea re the photos. I took the screws out originally, pointless I soon realised.

    Have you had car aligned since you dropped it?
