Donít quite know what to try next with this!?!
Got a stupid problem and am pretty much out of ideas at the moment!
Basically I need to replace both my bottom arms for mot later this year (nov time), I bought the rear bushes as they looked tired (& trying to save myself some money ha ha bloody ha), got the drivers side old bush off, but then found I couldnít get the new one on properly. in trying to do this my inboard joint on my driveshaft has somehow gone tits up and is now loose and knocks as if itís broken/come apart!
Decided to give up on swapping the bushes and so I got complete new bottom arms and a replacement driveshaft, but I cannot for the life of me get the hub but off the old shaft, had a breaker bar with a 4ftíish jack handle on it, car on the ground, handbrake on, car in gear - all that resulted in was me snapping a 1/2Ē drive extension, and still the hub nut wonít budge!!
Problem is now, Iíve run out of money so canít pay Honda or even a local garage what itíd cost to do the work, guessing it needs a decent impact wrench to get the nut off, but just how damned tight are the bloody things!!!
Itís kinda ringing alarm bells with me that itís on so tight that it sheared the end off my extension, and apart from my lack of finances Iím now left with a half knackered car that knocks and shakes if I go much above 30mph, and that was only on a short test run!!
Guess Iím stuffed until I can get the cash to pay someone to do the work cos I canít imagine ANY battery powered impact wrench would have the balls to get the hub nut off with how tight it is!!
Any pearls of wisdom appreciated cos Iím fresh out!!
