Hub Nut f*$!er
Tried to get front hub/driveshaft nut off today.
Splashed £8 on a 36mm socket and still couldn't shift it with some scaffold pole on the end of T bar! Bugger is stuck solid. Looks like a visit to the garage mechs.
For those who might have a go, make sure the 36mm socket is at least 32mm deep otherwise it won't stay on the nut.
Small split in gaiter (actual shaft end so doesn't flex too much) sealed with bathroom silicone sealant after injecting 30ml of grease. Seems to work quite well - so far.
