Droplinks! What Am I Doing Wrong!?
....As the title suggests, what am I doing wrong!
Basically I have replaced the upper wishbones on my V6 156, but the bit that seems to take everyone else 5mins takes me forever - removing the droplinks!!!
When I replaced the lower arms (and droplinks) around 3 months ago I ended up sawing off the droplinks as they had completely jammed! It didn't matter as I intended replacing them anyway, but when I attempted to remove them again today (for changing the upper arms), it took around 25mins a side to remove them, and fitting them back on was even worse! No amount of leverage on the roll-bar made any difference, and I didn't really want to smack them back in due to damaging the thread - but after a while they eventually popped back in!
Is there a "special" or quick and easy way to remove them just for future reference?!
