159 wheel bearing change - front

Just a note to maybe help someone in future doing a wheel bearing on a 159, have some strong sockets and very long extension bars to hand.
The 36mm hub nut will be corroded on and will need persuasion of the chuck Norris with pmt level to get it off.
I used a selection of bar till it was about 8 FEET long and it just bent the t bar.
In the end I had to resort to a 1" drive ratchet that I was given years ago and a trolley jack....
I'm amazed it didn't snap the reducer!!!

hub nuts are always f'in tight , i invested in a 3/4 inch drive socket set for removing them , only need the ratchet to undo any that ive come across over the years
