M235i : Replacing hub assembly bearing


Man, why does everything always look so easy on paper but so difficult in real life?

The center bolt in the center of the hub is easy to remove following the steps. You need someone to step on the brakes while you use a breaker bar to unscrew it.

But .... but ... but ... the 4 bolts that holds the hub assembly to the drive axle is truly a pain to remove --- the axle is in the way.

TiS instructions are not realistic. I think we need to remove the rest of the suspension pieces to have enough room to work out those damn 4 bolts.

I got one unscrewed but it cannot come out because it's blocked.

Any suggestions and help would be great.
