I was able to remove the axle using the hub puller that uses 3 lug bolts and about a 3/4 inch center screw. That was after softening it up with the BFH. Well I noticed that the wheel bearing was a little loose, like I damaged the race. So I proceeded to snap of the pinch bolt for the strut. This car has seen the salt for 12 years.
So here are my questions:
Do I drill out the punch bolt and put a new one with a nut or try to re-tap ?
Should I buy a whole hub, bearing and steering knuckle assy or do i have to try to take the stuff apart and just replace the bearing. I probably can find a used Steering knuckle and wheel bearing, but who knows the condition.
All this for a little plastic/rubber CV Boot, I wish I had known, I would have tried to extend the life of the CV boot.
I really appreciate any help here, Don C
