    Wheel Bearing

    Hi ppl, Got to change the front wheel bearing (nearside).
    I know I should use a joint seprater, but is there any way to
    do it without one, save me buying one. Or should I just eat humble pie and get one?. Cheers.
    To walk between the lines , would make my life so boring!!!!!!!!!

    Haynes manual says ' Using balljoint separator, separate the track rod end from the steering arm'. Never done one before so just going by the book!!!!

    dont bother mate, just get a copper hammer and hit the knuckle and the vibration should make the track rod end come loose also do this on the bottom ball joint
