Hi All

Is this on the driveshaft spline, someone has posted on FB and reckons they have broken two sets of pullers trying to get it off ?

All discs i have ever replaced just require removing pads/caliper, so bit confused here, only time i have taken 'knuckle' off is to replace wheel bearings.

Is this stuck on the spline or wheel bearing guys ?

Look on the back of the hub (inside where the rubber driveshaft boot is) and see if there is a circlip on the shaft holding it in place.
I will ask but that makes no sense to me, a circlip on the inside would hold the hub OFF...If there is any form of circlip there i would presume it would be there for the outer CV joint..I will get him to check though.

What are the three recessed bolts on the disc?
5 bolts hold the disk and hub together and 5 not 3 recessed t50 torx hold it all....

As i stated it's not my van BUT trying to help, who the fook puts discs on the inside of the Hub ?

Every disc i have replaced in since they were out simply just needed the caliper off, one screw/torx holding disc.

So you risk damaging the wheel bearing whilst replacing discs ??

Yes i watched some of the youtube vids and it looks a task lol. The German one where the guy has the big fancy presser/puller was smart.

metal expands when heated its his joke about freezer
It's probably a bearing welded to the spline due to heat. Heat it up and knock it off failing that pull the driveshaft out from the other end and change it if it is stuck. Jokes are for fun and laughter I am not joking. Don't like my advice then don't do it then. Simples.

That is the best and safest way.
